Knievel and Madison ring in the New Year with extreme bike jumps

LAS VEGAS - Here?s a Robbie Knievel recipe for a happy ? but not necessarily healthy ? New Year?s Eve: a ramp, a volcano and a clearing on the Las Vegas Strip. The 200-foot high jump made Knievel appear to jump over the volcano on television, though he actually jumped next to it as it spewed a fireball under him for live spectators? Minutes after Knievel?s jump, Australian stuntman Robbie Maddison drew excited gasps as he hopped 120 feet up and came down on top of a 96-foot high scale version of the Arc de Triomphe at Paris Las Vegas ? a follow up to his record-breaking jump of more than 322 feet last year.
