FOX television has announced that they have decided to cancel their coverage of the planned Snake River Canyon jump with Big “Ed” Beckley.
Beckley wrote on his Facebook page that he is not doing any more interviews, but Don Nelson was able to reach out and Beckley explained that his dream of riding a rocket powered bike over the canyon is not over. Beckley furthered, “What we’ll do is try to schedule the event for 2015, which will give us an opportunity to do it during the summertime. We have other media partners that are interested.”
Beckley also said that he has an upcoming plan for a stunt over the Mississippi River.
We will continue to follow this story as it unfolds.
FOX opted out because of budget concerns and not enough production time.
