Re: why did Evel crash on the shark jump ?
Evel claimed he crashed on purpose because he knew he couldn't make the steep landing platform. He said he would rather crash during practice. So, to answer your question....Who Knows! That's the story I heard.

On Oct 17th 1938 a baby was born.
That baby would become a man,that man became a LEGEND.
On Nov 30th 2007 the man passed away.
But his Legend lives on in the hearts the minds and the memories of
the millions of people whose lives he touched in the 69 years he graced the earth.
Thanks Evel we will NEVER FORGET YOU.
