Behind the scenes video: Leigh Montville on Evel Knievel

Updated

After today’s show, I spoke with author Leigh Montville a bit further about Evel Knievel. If you missed his interview on the show, you can check it out here. (It’s really great)

Montville told me that even though Knieval is the most famous motorcycle rider of all time, he really wasn’t a great motorcycle rider. Apparently his size got in the way of his riding. Who knew?
