Daredevil Robbie Knievel successfully jumped 15 RVs and three trucks at the Beaudry RV dealership in Tucson, Ariz., on Saturday (Nov. 6) as 10,000 spectators looked on.
According to the Tucson Citizen, Knievel faced potentially dangerous cross winds in attempting to make the 180-foot jump, similar to one his father, Evel Knievel, made in Tucson in January 1972.
“Crosswinds are bad for jumping, but if the wind is at his back, it’s in his favor,” said Spanky Spangler, Robby Knievel’s stunt coordinator. “He can even jump in the rain if we keep the ramps covered. They’re treated with a traction surface to help him.”
The weather remained calm enough for Knievel to make the jump clearly and without injury.
