Insane Motorcycle Stunt At The Buffalo Chip During The 75th Sturgis Rally. Evel Knievel And All Others Failed At It.

SBC-EK-LANDING-PAGE-DRAFTDuring the 75th Sturgis Rally, the Buffalo Chip Thrill Show will include a dangerous attempt at a world-record motorcycle jump of 22 cars. A stunt that even the great Evel Knievel was never able to pull off. On September 1, 1972. his crew warned him that his bike – a Harley-Davidson XR-750 – would be unable to reach the speed it needed to clear the distance, and they were right. Knievel failed with a bounce landing on the safety ramp the crew built over the lineup’s final three cars. On July 4, 2001 another 22-car jump was attempted by a motorcycle daredevil who spent who also failed and almost died.

Thursday, Aug, 6, 2015 you can see what happens when motorcycle daredevil Doug Danger tempts fate by attempting this exact jump in the Buffalo Chip Amphitheater, using the very same bike that failed Knievel and ultimately lead to his defeat. There’s no telling what will happen during the Buffalo Chip’s Evel Knievel Thrill Show, but one thing is for sure: your heart will race, you will clench your teeth, but nothing will be able to pull your gaze from this historic attempt.

In addition to this potentially deadly world-record jump attempt, for only 10 bucks more you can get the full “Evel Knievel Experience” and come face to face with the world’s largest collection of Knievel curiosities from July 31 to Aug. 8 at the Buffalo Chip CrossRoads. Get an up-close look at X-rays of Knievel’s broken bones, his X-2 skycycle rocket, the Mack truck show rig he named “Big Red,” his iconic “Sports Illustrated” leathers and cape, and much more. The Buffalo Chip didn’t exhume Evel Knievel himself, but you’ll be able to experience everything else!

The Evel Knievel Thrill Show Jump is included for free with your  “Rally” or “Extended Rally” or “Early Bird” Campground Admission Passes. Prices are now the lowest they will ever be. So don’t wait and don’t be the only person to miss this spectacular jump in the Buffalo Chip Amphitheater. If you don’t want to see the jump, you can buy only the “Evel Knievel Experience tickets” For all your 75th Sturgis Rally reservations (August 3-9, 2015) go to Buffalo Chip.

    saw a guy billed as the worlds largest motorcycle jumper at the chip in ’93, made a very long jump through fire over a burning car, it was a very entertaining show, guy must have weighed 400+ lb

    That’s not a Harley he is riding in the first clips, looks like a Norton. Its a parallel twin. A great man, very brave but very stupid.

    Saw Evil jump three times, twice outdoors and once indoors in Detroit. He made them all. And Guy, he never rode Norton, he rode Triumph until the Cesar’s Palace accident. Went to the XR after that and never switched back.

    Bilbo Baggins said it all and said it true.

    Evel rode a Laverda branded as an American Eagle for a while. It may resemble a Norton in some ways.

    He is very impressive, but imagine how impressive it would be if he did it on a 30″ wheel bagger!

    STSN thanks I think that must be the Laverda, I never realised he rode one.

    Rodent: You are the most negative person on this blog all the time. Is someone paying you to be this negative,always? If so, you must be raking it in. You are consistent though.
    Best of luck with your attitude…..
    BTW: Lot’s of People go to the Chip, for many reasons. You have not been their in years. Woody has created a city of fun and lot’s of things to do.
    Try being positive some time….better Karma…..
    Thanks
    Harlan

    Although there was only 1 Evel Knievel / I am the only person to successfully jump a steam rocket over 1/4 mile – far enough to clear the Snake River Canyon
    1,374 feet the longest jump in daredevil history
