Motorbike daredevil Knievel jumps 21 vehicles in Texas

Motorcycle daredevil Robbie Knievel successfully completed a shortened jump Saturday night at Texas Motor Speedway.
Knievel jumped over 21 Hummer vehicles, four less than had originally been planned because of a headwind gusting more than 48 kph. The landing ramp protected the last three of the large SUVs in the line, though Knievel easily cleared all the vehicles and avoided crashing even after hitting the landing ramp off-center.
The 46-year-old Knievel has made more than 250 jumps since he was 9 years old.
It was the second jump in the last two weeks for the son of the late Evel Knievel.
Before getting on his motorcycle, Knievel told the crowd that his father, who died in November, was a "great man, a great legend."
