Entertainer. Born in Butte, Montana, he was a motorcycle daredevil whose daring and highly publicized motorcycle jumps, including attempting to jump over the Snake River canyon, made him a household name. Despite suffering a series of major injuries during stunts, he had a long career in stunt riding. He is immortalized in Washington's Smithsonian Institution as "America's Legendary Daredevil." His son, Robbie "Kaptain" Knievel, has carried on in his father's daredevil footsteps as a motorcycle stunt entertainer.
