In the history of sports, few names are more recognisable than that of Evel Knievel. Long after the man hung up his famous white leather jumpsuit and rode his Harley into the sunset, his name is still synonymous with the death-defying lifestyle he led. Notoriously brash, bold and daring, Knievel stared death in the face, but few know the larger-than-life story of the boy from Butte, Montana. Academy Award-winning filmmaker Daniel Junge and actor-producer Johnny Knoxville take a candid look at the American daredevil and icon.

Brett begins the next leg of his Cape Town journey with Wayne from Buffalo Ridge.

They discuss the ethos behind the making of his low-cost, but delicious wine, Wolftrap and compares it with his high-end and equally successful label, Chocolate block. Brett concludes his journey with an eye and key tattoo from arguably the best black and grey tattoo artist in the country, Tamar at Body Architects.
