Knievel… 16 Bus Wembley Jump

London Jump Video

Robbie Knievel is headed to London to jump 16 double-decker buses on June 12, 2010. Back in 1975, in front of 90,000 people at London’s Wembley Stadium, his father Evel Knievel crashed while trying to land a jump over thirteen single-decker Merlin buses.

After the crash, in which Evel broke his pelvis, Knievel addressed the audience and announced his retirement.          

Frank Gifford from ABC Wide World of Sports was astounded when later Evel Knievel walked off the Wembley field stating, "I came in walking, I went out walking".

Thirty-five year’s later Kaptain Robbie Knievel is going to attempted the jump his dad crash-landed. This video for the upcoming jump extravaganza was recently released and serves as a promotion for Robbie’s upcoming Wembley Stadium jump.

The video includes some fantastic clips of Robbie and Evel both landing safely and also crash landing some of their most notable attempts.
