Robbie Knievel to jump 16 double decker buses

1 of 4

Robbie Knievel is set to jump 16 double decker buses in London on a Harley-Davidson XR750, on May 22, 2010.

That's three more than his father Evel Knievel in his failed 1975 Wembley Stadium record attempt when he broke his pelvis in front of 90,000 fans. Evel was 37 at the time - son Robbie is 47. 

Robbie Knievel said, “Daredevils are a dying breed. I’m proud to have been raised by one and to be one myself. I’m looking forward to this and although my dad’s jump ended with broken bones and a lot of pain, I’m confident he’ll be smiling down on this one.”
