The evening was lined up with some of the toughest bull riders in Canada and a pen full of rank bulls. Not far behind Coy in the average was Nick Tetz with an average score of 166. Tetz ended up riding five bulls at this PBR Canada event after being an 85 and an 82.5 in the long-go and an 81 in the short go, even dealing with a couple re-rides. Tetz and Robbins were the only successful riders in the short-go for the evening, putting them neck and neck in the average.
The cowboys will be headed to Red Deer, Alberta for the next PBR apart of the Canada Cup Series where they will battle for another championship.
