Back in 1983 stuntman Chris Bromham leapt 196ft over 18 buses on a KTM495, breaking the world distance and obstacle records – and now the Street Hawk stuntman is hoping to go one better at the age of 61.
Chris retired in 1997 after a 21-year career inspired by legendary stuntman Evel Knievel – but still retains his title as the current World Record holder of the motorbike jump obstacle record.
Bromham wants to “compete with his 26-year-old self” and hopes to beat his bus-leaping best, as he makes his comeback at Retro Festival in Newbury, Berkshire in August – in support of Children with Cancer UK.
