Clovis, CA: Last night at a PBR Touring Pro Event in Clovis California 2011 Canadian Champion Bull Rider Chad Besplug took home the top prize.
He won the Long Go of the event with an 87 on Julio Moreno bull. He also won the Short Go on the Moreno bull Charlie Bullware with a big 90 point effort.
At the end of the event he was presented with a big plastic check for $12,500. It might not be the actual amount he won, either way, it’s great for Chad!
To go with, this win will secure Chad a spot for five events on the PBR’s Built Ford Tough Series. This is because the cut is coming up in the next few weeks and Chad is one of the top five riders eligible to be called up.
For those of you in Alberta tonight though you can see Besplug and many of Canada’s other top bull riders competing in Marwayne, AB tonight at 7 pm at the Marwayne Arena.
Check back here tonight and tomorrow as well as on the Everything Cowboy Facebook page YouTube channel and @TedStovin on Twitter for updates and video highlights.
See you all in Marwayne!
