Robbie Knievel to jump a volcano

Earlier this week it was announced that Robbie Knievel, son of the legendary Robert Craig 'Evel' Knievel, is to jump the refurbished Mirage volcano on Las Vegas strip.

The volcano 'erupts' once an hour every night, and was re-opened on Monday following a $25million facelift. The 46-year-old will jump on New Years Eve as part of a television special.

Knievel said: "We pretty much own Vegas. I'll shut the (Las Vegas) Strip down for the third time."

Knievel also stated that this is likely to be his last stunt in the US.
