Re: Pastrana nails all three jumps
Agree with john. all were great ramp to ramp jumps. 3.5 million viewers. Travis is a gifted athlete, daredevil who comes across as very likeable. I think he had possibly already made the exact 3 jumps in the huge desert practice complex but still put on a great show. The commentators were the weak side of the program. Goldberg, a professional fake actor. Johnny Knoxville, a stuntman of vulgar and ridiculous stunts. Can't even remember the names of the rest. The on site announcer was extremely loud and nerve wracking. Kelly may have been the only one on the 3 hour show that even had met Evel during his life. Pretty ridiculous Robbie was never mentioned or credited with successfully jumping the fountains in 1989. Still a great show thanks to the professionalism of Travis.
Great jumps. My favorite was the 16 bus jump. I thought it was cool that he rode his bike in the Strip on the way over to
Caesars Palace. I think the hosts were weak, but over all a nice tribute to Evel.
