A Tribute to Evel Knievel  

While searching for info on the recently deceased icon Evel Knievel, we came across this online radio interview from www.SpeedFreaks.TV 

Though the interview is from about six years ago, Evel's brash nature still comes through strong and proud. "I've only had about 16 or 17 operations including my liver transplant." Yes ladies and gentleman, only 16 or 17.

Check out the interview at to listen to Evel discuss his early childhood in Montana, his thoughts on his son Robbie, Jim Pomeroy, today's motocross racers and more.
