Default Evel Knievel Passes away

November 30 marked the end of what will forever be remembered as the longest and most courageous battle between one man, a man we all know as the world's greatest daredevil, and death. Robert Craig "Evel" Knievel died in Clearwater, Florida, finally succumbing after nearly a three-year bout with the terminal lung disease, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. He was 69

One of the most daring riders of all times. Never afraid of defying death,never afraid to try any dangerous stunt. A perfectionist that he was..
God Bless his soul!
