CORONATION, Alberta – Amidst his first competitive season since fracturing his femur at the 2016 PBR World Finals, Aaron Roy (Yellow Grass, Saskatchewan) earned his second event victory of the season Wednesday night, delivering a flawless 2-for-2 performance to win the Touring Pro Division’s Royal Rumbull in Coronation, Alberta.
The three-time PBR Canada Champion began the event with an 83.5 point trip aboard Mr. Brightside (Vold Rodeo) in Round 1. In the final round, he used an 84.5-point ride on Honky Sam (Eno Bucking Bulls) to narrowly edge runner-up Zane Lambert (Ponoka, Alberta) by 0.5 points to win the 18th annual edition event.
The win earned him $3,513.30, in addition to 275 Canadian and 60 world points.
After beginning the event ranked No. 15 in the nation, Roy cracked into the Top 10, now tied for tenth with Koal Livingston (Burleson, Texas), 1,402.5 points behind No. 1 Brock Radford (De Winton, Alberta).
So far this season, Roy, who won earlier this year in Manor, Saskatchewan, has recorded four Top-5 and 10 Top-10 efforts across 13 events.
