Illustration Sunday: Evel Knievel

Though Torontoist wasn’t there on the big day, Evel Knievel’s motorcycle jump over thirteen Mack trucks at the 1974 CNE is the stuff of legend. Throughout his career, he broke a record forty bones in numerous crashes, and thrilled audiences around the world. After a life spent cheating death, the legendary daredevil passed away this week.
