Unlike motorcycle racers, whose lasting fame is judged almost entirely on their race results and championship success, Knievel was arguably more famous for his failures than his successes.
He shot to worldwide fame in the early days of 1968 after a failed attempt to leap over the fountains at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas left him with serious injuries but, crucially, great film footage of the wipeout.
