Last summer Travis Pastrana made history re-creating three of Evel Knievel’s most legendary stunts.
This summer, “Evel Live 2” will broadcast live from the San Bernardino International Airport in California. Professional motorsports icon Travis Pastrana will co-host with Matt Iseman.
Ahead of his attempt to break the motorcycle distance jump record for the “Evel Live 2” television special, Axell Hodges has been injured and will have to withdraw from the July 7 event. The renowned moto star severely injured both ankles in a crash while training. Hodges had been slated to challenge two records, including an attempt to jump farther than 378 feet, 9 inches, the current distance record set by Robbie Maddison in 2011.
