Calgary, AB: Valdiron de Oliveira made it four of five thus far in the bull riding for PBR Built Ford Tough Series riders and round wins at this year’s Calgary Stampede. The only one to not be from the BFTS thus far is Scott Schiffner and he’s spent plenty of time there himself.
Oliveira, originally of Brazil, spends most of his current time in Decatur, TX for travel to and from PBR events in the United States. Today it was the Calgary Stampede’s Black flat horned bucking bull they named after this very website, Everything Cowboy, which Valdiron rode for 86.5 points and the round win.

Canadian Bull Riders Aaron Roy and Jody Turner were both bucked off before the whistle.
Tanner Milan won the Steer Wrestling today as the last man out. He’s been on a roll lately and kept things going today with a 3.4 to pick up another $5,500 worth of winnings.
Leading the Bareback thus far, pending a re-ride is Dusty LaValley. After finishing second last year, nothing but a win is in his expectations in 2013. 89.5 points was the result today on the Growney horse, Raggedy Ann.
