Radford expands lead atop Canadian National Standings heading into final day of season

SASKATOON, Saskatchewan – After weathering a slump on the heels of a historic, four-event win streak this summer, Brock Radford returned to his championship contending form Friday night, victorious in Round 1 of the 2017 PBR Canada Finals.

The final rider out at the SaskTel Centre, Radford (De Winton, Alberta) rode Minion Stuart (Skori Bucking Bulls) for 87.5 points.

The round win earned the 22-year-old 250 Canadian points, cementing his position atop the national standings.

Prior to his ride tonight, Radford had gone 2-for-9 since winning his record fourth consecutive PBR Canada Touring Pro Division event in Coronation, Alberta on Aug. 16.

With 2,381.66 total points, Radford leads No.2 Zane Lambert (Westbourne, Manitoba) by 504.16 points heading into the final night of competition as he seeks to earn his first Canadian title.

Rookie Coy Robbins (Camrose, Alberta) finished second in the two-day event’s first round after riding Grey Eyes (Vold Rodeo/Prescott) for 86.5 points.

The 18-year-old now sits atop the PBR Canada Rookie of the Year race after earning 150 Canadian points and surpassing Dayton Johnston (Milk River, Alberta).

After beginning the event ranked No.29, he now sits No.22 in the Canadian Standings, 85 points ahead of Johnston.

Defending PBR Canada Finals event winner Lambert finished third on the night after scoring 86 points aboard Finning Lil Shorty (Flying 4 Bucking Bulls), earning 125 Canadian points.

After significantly closing the points disparity between him and No.1 Radford  with four Top 5 finishes and one win at the past four events, Lambert heads into the final day of the season 504.16 points off from becoming the second rider in PBR history to earn multiple Canadian national titles.

Edgar Durazo (Moctezuma, Sonora, Mexico) and Tyler Pankewitz (Ponoka, Alberta) tied for fourth after matching 85.5-point rides in Round 1.

Durazo’s qualified ride came aboard Heaven’s Basement (Vold Rodeo/Prescott) as the first successful out of the night, while 2007 PBR Canada Champion Pankewitz rode Darkness (Vold Rodeo/Prescott).

Each rider earned 87.5 Canadian points for the finish.

Lonnie West (Cadogan, Alberta) climbed one spot in the rankings to No.4 after finishing tied for seventh in the round.

The 21-year-old rode Night Vision (Wild Hoggs) for 84.5 points to earn 22.5 Canadian points. He now trails Radford by 979.16 points.

The 2017 PBR Canada Finals conclude Saturday, Oct. 21 at 7:30 p.m. CT at the SaskTel Centre where the 2017 PBR Canada Champion will be crowned. The champion will earn a trip to the Real Time Pain Relief Velocity Tour Finals in Las Vegas, Nevada Oct. 28-30 where they will then have the opportunity to qualify for the Built Ford Tough World Finals on Nov. 1-5.
