Doug Danger — United States
Doug Danger began his motorcycle daredevil career back in 1979 when he jumped 10 cars in Palmer, Massachusetts and he hasn't stopped yet. Danger went on to break Evel Knievel's longest car jump , by clearing 20 in Toronto, Canada in 1989. After that, Doug was determined to hold the record for the longest motorcycle ramp-to-ramp jump.
In 1990, Doug sat another American record for 250cc bikes, by jumping 25 cars at a total of 181 feet. In 1991, Doug broke the longest ramp-to-ramp jump by an American, by clearing 38 cars at a total distance of 251 feet at the New Hampshire International Speedway, Loudon, Massachusetts. This record was also held as a world record for over 9 years.
In 1992, Doug was going to have a jump off competition with Robbie Knievel, but that never happened. Doug suffered a horrible accident while jumping 11 cars, three shows prior to his scheduled jump off. He suffered 17 broken bones and was in a coma for over a month. It took over three years to regain his memory. Eddie Kidd took Doug's place in the jump-off with Knievel, Kidd won.
Doug didn't let the accident stop him. In 1993, he was back on his bike and jumping. Each year more shows and farther jumps. Danger has even gone on to jump over 25 automobiles again! On October 10, 1999, Doug broke Robbie Knievel's 17 semi-truck record by one truck in Las Vegas, Nevada.
On March 18, 2000, Doug Danger jumped an L-1011 Jumbo Jet wing tip-to- wing tip. The jump was filmed for the "I Dare You" television show. The jump was 160' across. The takeoff ramp was 4 feet wide and 20 feet high. The fuselage of the plane was 27 feet off the ground. Doug had to reach a height of 30 feet in the air. The picture above was taken by Doug Klang.
