Featuring original, exclusive interviews with family members, friends and famous fans, as well as adrenaline- soaked archive, this special documents the life of the man who put “extreme” into sport – Robert Craig Knievel, better known as “Evel.” In time for the 40th anniversary of his infamous Snake River Canyon jump, in which he narrowly cheated death while attempting to jump the canyon on a rocket- powered motorcycle, the film charts his journey from small town rebel in Butte, Montana, to becoming the most notorious daredevil in the world.
