"Dirtbike racing extraordinaire" - Chernarus National Post
Chernarus national champion in freestyle and motocross 2007-2013
Once jumped the Novigrad city hall for a crowd of five thousand spectators. 30% of those spectators were Niveks
Knievel Nivek was born in Novigrad. Like the rest of the Niveks, he had a fun and interesting childhood filled with competing against other Niveks for the approval of Big Dick Karel. Knievel Nivek spent his younger years idolising 80's and 90's stunt performers. He adored motocross and stole his first dirt-bike at just 8 years old. From then on he would compete across the nation at various events wearing a signature red outfit that would follow him throughout his career. At the age of 15, Knievel officially changed his name to Knievel Nivek in the hopes that it would gain him more fans as he began to perform more daring stunts.
In 2009 Knievel Nivek performed the one stunt that gained him national news attention and shocked the youth and the elderly alike all across Chernarus. He jumped the Novigrad city-hall on his custom red and white striped Suzuki DR350S. (Knievel thought the S in 350S stood for Sarah, so he called it Sarah.) After that, anywhere Knievel Nivek went his fans would follow, he was easily recognisable as he would never take off his red racing suit. He succeeded and gained Big Dick Karel's approval. A subtle head nod and a stern point to the exit of Big Dick Karel's office was a huge deal in the Nivek family, something that Knievel rubs in the faces of the other Niveks, who he views as inferior.
When the outbreak struck, Knievel Nivek would use his bike skills to help the Novigrad raiders. He would jump his bike into compounds and do donuts to kick up dirt whilst the other Niveks would swarm in and take control. He customised Sarah, his bike, by adding secret lock-boxes to store comfort and delivered the pills all across Chernarus. In August of 2019, Knievel was waiting at Svetlojarsk for a ferry to take him to Jelení Ostrov when his beloved bike Sarah was stolen. He believes his bike was stolen by a crazed fan and is somewhere on the island.
