Daredevil “Mad Mike” Hughes will attempt a world record in support of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip’s 2013 daredevil extravaganza during the Sturgis motorcycle rally by jumping his outrageous steam powered rocket cycle as far and high as Evel Knievel once attempted over Snake River Canyon, Idaho. Hughes contends his rocket will hit 275 mph and propel him over 1000 feet high for a ¼ mile with no guidance system, clearing the distance that will be required to successfully accomplish Evel Knievel’s failed Snake River Canyon Jump.
