This weekend the bull riding trail treated a lot of Bull Hands great and some not so great. I'm talking about the 18 year old bull rider Wyatt Rogers from Locust Grove, Oklahoma! Wyatt, entered up a CBR (Championship Bull Riding) event in Mercedes, TX and ended up walking away with the event win. Not to mention, Wyatt is still in High School and this was Wyatt's first time at an CBR event and his first time riding at a Professional level with the big dogs! I Can't wait to hear more about this young gun this year down the bull riding trail. CBR'S Next bull riding event is in Jacksonville, TX and you can find more info about this event at www.cbrbull.com
This weekend the PBR BFTS(Professional Bull Riding Built Ford Tough Series) had it's first bull riding event on the beach! I'm talking about Huntington Beach, California. This PBR BFTS was a Monster Energy Bulls On The Beach 15/15 bucking battle! I wasn't at the event to experience it LIVE.. But, from all of the video blogs I saw from the event the riders were psyched and ready to rock! The guy that won the event is another young gun on the bull riding trail.. His name is, Matt Triplett and he's from Columbia Falls, Montana! Matt, picked up the event win with an 87 point ride on Oklahoma Bell! You can watch the winning ride below: (Video Credit goes to PBR)
Here's who finished this weekends event in Huntington Beach, Calif. in the top 4:
1. Matt Triplett - 87.00
2. Marco Eguchi - 84.75
3. Mike Lee - 81.25
4. Silvano Alves - 80.50
Next week, PBR heads to Las Vegas for the PBR Finals! The PBR Finals start Oct. 22nd and end Oct. 26th. Right now, Joao Ricardo Vieira is leading the PBR BFTS standings with Fabiano Vieira sitting second and Silvano Alves sitting third while Guilherme Marchi is sitting in fourth! One thing, in common with the top four in the PBR BFTS world standings is that their all from Brazil! Their is only one American that is sitting in the top 5 and his name is Mike Lee. I Can't wait to see who captures the 2014 PBR Finals win. At the same time.. I'm kind of sad that this will be Bushwackers last out on the PBR BFTS trail. Bushwacker, will be retiring at the end of the PBR finals and heading out to the pasture for retirement. Another, bull that will retire at the end of the PBR Finals is Chad Berger's bull "Smackdown". Sad to see these two bulls buck out for their last time, but I'm super blessed that I had the chance to see these two bulls live in person at a PBR BFTS event!
I hope you all learned a thing or two from reading this blog post about the CBR and PBR trail. I plan to post more CBR and PBR blog posts in the future. So, if there's any certain bull rider or bucking bull on the CBR or PBR trail that you'd like me to talk about.. Let me know! I love learning about new bull hands and bucking bulls.
As I wrap up this blog post.. I'd like to leave you all with some motivation for this week! Enjoy :)
