I was afraid to watch. I am a big TP188 fan from way back when he was an MX Racer.
But now I can watch😊

TW, is this Travis the same person whose Trophy Truck burned to the ground near Camp Gecko in the 2006 Baja 1000?

Photos of it burning were posted back then. We saw it on the trailer in L.A. Bay, the day after the race went through...

Or maybe the Snake River that Evil tried and failed.

I think Travis was the first to do a back flip on a motocross motorcycle then a double back flip. He's done a lot of crazy stuff, he and Evil Knievel were cut from a different cloth. Travis hasn't broken anywhere near as many bones as Evil.

Yes it has been but this event was to kick off Car Week on the History Channel and was a tribute to Evil Knievel's leaps. Thus the type of motorcycle used and the outfit Travis wore.
