This Friday and Saturday night January 9th & 10th Big Ed Beckley will be jumping his Harley’s at the start each night of the No Limits Monster Truck Winter Nationals at the Monroe Civic Center in downtown Monroe, LA.
Here is a Poster telling all about the show he is part of and where to get tickets.
The rider BIG ED BECKLEY sits on his Harley jump bike with sweat dripping down his forehead stares down the long ramp out of the grandstand heading towards the ramp and a long line of cars and then the place he wants to land on is a long way to safety.
With the crowd cheering him on he let’s the clutch out and the Harley starts rolling down to the ramp as he guns the motor to gain speed and then let’s it fly off the take off ramp – will he make history or BE HISTORY? Come see Big Ed attempt the Death Jump as he defies Death and puts his safety all on the line! ” I have Jesus on my side and I will rely on him to get me across to that landing area and stop before I smash into a wall – come and see me risk it all!!,” said BIG Ed Beckley.

Monday morning Nov. 3rd Big Ed Beckley was interviewed on CNN live for their NEW DAY segment.
He was answering questions about why Daredevils like himself think that people want to see these extreme stunts on television like Nik Wallenda’s tight wire walk and his motorcylce jumps. While we do not have the video here is a screen shot and more on this link.
Big Ed said, “This was a great opportunity to get some much needed air time on World wide Television and will help accelerate my jumping career. We thank our Lord Jesus for putting me in front of all these people and the crew from CNN has asked us back and hopefully we can get our big projects moving even better!,”
