CAMROSE, Alberta — Ty Elliot sat in the seventh spot in Canadian Pro Rodeo going into the August long weekend, the second highest paying weekend of the year. After today’s Bulls for Breakfast CPRA bull riding as part of the Big Valley Jamboree, Elliot should move up a couple spots.
Camrose isn’t the only place he’s sitting in the position for a check though, Elliot is sitting fourth in Strathmore currently too after an 84.5 there yesterday.
Today however the man from Nanton rode Barry Minor from Sawyer Bucking Bulls for 86 points. He’s the first man to record a score on that bull.
Coming in with just about $15,000 won on the year, this weekend should push him across the threshold needed to qualify for November’s 41st Canadian Finals Rodeo.
Jesse Torkelson’s 85.5 from yesterday still sits in second place.
Fabian Dueck of Paraguay has been staying on a lot of bulls as of late. This morning it was a score of 84.5 on American Hustle from Sawyer Bucking Bulls.
On the Bull Riders Canada side of things, Cawl Braithwaite moved into the lead with his 82. Braithwaite stayed on his first bull after an awkward start where the bull was down and he was in a bad way. Cawl managed to hang on long enough for a re-ride which sure worked out to his advantage. It’s a good thing too as he’s in need of some points to solidify his spot at the October Finals in Lloydminster, SK.
The conclusion of the Bulls for Breakfast CPRA and BRC Bull Riding concludes tomorrow, August 3rd, 2014 at 10:00am.
