  • Description

    An Australian stunt motorcyclist, as already claims the distinction of being the world's least injured stunt rider, added a new record to his collection on Monday (19 November). Twenty-seven year old Johnny Fogwell has only suffered two broken collar-bones and fourteen stitches during his risky career. Unlike many of his fellow stars his record leap over thirty-two cars received little publicity and was held in a suburban Brisbane Park rather that a big stadium. After successfully completing his spectacular, jump, Johnny Fogwell has now set his sights on the world distance record, taking on the well-known names of the motorcycle stunt world, Evel Knievel and Dale Buggins. Ron Markland of Channel Nine Brisbane watched Johnny Fogwell leap into the record books.
