I can't believe I missed this

Evel Knievel was the god of crashing while doing backyard stunts and Robbie Maddison has erased all memory of lame motorcycle stunts.

I talked with Maddison on the phone after the Vegas tower jump. He has a staff physicist, they use instrumentation, and that 98-foot tower jump was practiced by use of a tower at the Red Bull Tech Center whose height could be increased incrementally. He told me he wants to "live big", which I took to mean he wasn't interested in pro MX, &c. Big pay-offs, right now, with some chance of having two good knees once the bank calls to say his account's full.

Has something happened to him?
