CAMROSE, Alberta — Both Bull Riders Canada Inc. and the Canadian Professional Rodeo Association have contestants this week in Camrose at Bulls for Breakfast as part of the Big Valley Jamboree.
On the second day of competition, Josh Birks took over the lead in BRC action while 2014 Canadian Champion Dakota Buttar went to number one in what was a wide open CPRA event.
Birks’ 86.5 on Corona Time from Vold Rodeo is the highest score of the combined events so far. Buttar’s 82.5 on Righteous Smoke also from Vold Rodeo could push him further in the lead of this year’s Canadian Standings if it holds up.
Lonnie West and Gerard Oversby joined Buttar on the leaderboard this morning with scores of 82 and 81.5 respectively.
