Jordan Hansen Wins PBR Canada’s Calgary Classic

Career-first win on Monster Energy Tour propels the Okotoks-native to No. 1 in the Canadian National Standings

CALGARY, Alberta – In front of a sold-out crowd Saturday night at the Nutrien Western Event Centre in Calgary, home province favorite Jordan Hansen (Okotoks, Alberta) went a perfect 3-for-3 to capture his career-first win on PBR (Professional Bull Riders) Canada Monster Energy Tour, victorious at the Calgary Classic.

After recording an 83-point ride in Round 1 aboard Sick Rhymes (Two Bit Bucking Bulls) to sit sixth overall after the first night of action, Hansen quickly climb the leaderboard at the record-setting event when he won Round 2 for his 85-point ride on Fantastic Pet (Two Bit Bucking Bulls).

As the final man to leave the chutes in the championship round, Hansen sealed the win when he rode Twist of Barbwire (Thompson Rodeo Livestock) for 87 points, becoming the lone rider to cover all three of his bovine athlete opponents at the event.

For the win, Hansen collected a check for $6,114.90, along with 575 Canadian and 170 world points.

The 25-year-old now leaves Calgary as the No. 1 ranked rider in the nation after beginning the stop No. 5. He leads No. 2 Jared Parsonage (Maple Creek, Saskatchewan), who tied for 10th at the event, by 119.17 points.

In the world standings, he rose from No. 93 to No. 48. He trails the Top 35 and a berth onto the premier PBR Unleash The Beast by 80 points.

Second went to PBR Canada Rookie of the Year contender Riley Gagnon (Innisfail, Alberta) who joined an elite contingent of riders when he covered reigning PBR Canada Bull of the Year Happy Camper (Two Bit Bucking Bulls) for 89 points.

Having made 25 trips across all levels of competition, the bovine athlete from Magrath, Alberta has now been ridden just five times in his career. Gagnon joins Dener Barbosa (Paulo de Faria, Brazil) who has ridden Happy Camper twice at the PBR World Finals, Parsonage and Zane Lambert (Ponoka, Alberta) as the only riders to have ever reached the 8 seconds on the bull.

Prior to the momentous ride which brought the raucous crowd to its feet, the 19-year-old rode Moose (Hy-Kik Ranch/Rafter KL) for 83.5 points in Round 2.

For the career-high finish at just the seventh event of his career, Gagnon earned a check for $4,539.85, along with 385 Canadian and 90 world points. Gagnon is now ranked inside the Top 10 in the national standings, sitting No. 6, 542.5 points behind No. 1 Hansen. In the world rankings, Gagnon is No. 81.

Josh Frost (Randlett, Utah) finished third, netting $2,501.55, 245 Canadian and 55 world points.

Beginning the final night of competition with an 82.5-point ride on Tough As Kade (Shay Marks/Diamond C Buckers) from Round 1 at his back, he built upon the momentum covering Hanna Motors Jack Sprat (Skori Bucking Bulls) for 84 points.

The American rider was unable to complete the perfect performance when he was bucked off by Oz (Vold Rodeo) in 2.95 second in the championship round.

Two-Time PBR Canada Champion Lambert earned his best finish of the season concluding the third stop of the Monster Energy Tour fourth.

As the top performing rider in Round 1, riding Wildlife Distillery’s Riggs (Don and Burke Ramsay/Willy Macza) for 86.5 points, Lambert remained perfect in Round 2 when he reached the 8-second mark aboard re-ride bull Feed Bill (Vold Rodeo) for 79.5 points.

Earning $2,038.30, 215 Canadian and 20 world points, Lambert gained crucial ground in the national standings. He is now No. 9 in Canada, 653.75 points behind the No. 1 spot, and inside the Top 100 in the world.

Rounding out the Top 5 was 2018 Calgary Stampede Champion Marcos Gloria (Central de Minas, Brazil).

Going 2-for-3, Gloria rode Spooky Lukie (Two Bit Bucking Bulls) for 81.5 points in Round 1, and Poker Face (Wilson Rodeo) for 83.5 points in Round 2. He leaves Calgary with $1,056.21, in addition to 110 Canadian and 15 world points.

Happy Camper was named the high-marked bull of the event for the second-consecutive year at the Calgary Classic. Also marking his second title of the 2019 season, Happy Camper recorded the event-best 44-point score in both of his outs. He first bucked in the Challenge of Champions on Friday when he dispatched Lambert in 6.03 seconds, and again in the championship round when he was ridden by Gagnon.

The Calgary Classic was also an ABBI Canada event, won by Shere Khaan (X6 Bucking Cattle) for his 173.83-point score. Firebeatz (Foley Bucking Bulls) was second with 171 points, followed closely by Shockwave (Wild Hoggs/Chmelnyk) with 170.5 points.

The PBR Canada Monster Energy Tour next travels to Québec, Québec and the Videotron Centre on May 4 for the Iron Cowboy, the lone PBR international Major.
