Canadians Fare Well in New York City
New York, NY: I think 5 bull riders and a bull fighter all a part of the PBR Built Ford Tough Series event this weekend in New York City at the Madison Square Garden Invitational is a new record for Canada. I’ll have a story next weekend though when that record is possibly broken with even more of or people there from up our way.
To start off though we’ve got to congratulate Ty Pozzobon for his first top 10 finish ever on the BFTS. He picked up over $3,000 for riding 3 of 5. The tough one came today when he took on Jeff Robinson’s Back Bender in the Championship Round this afternoon:
7.95 seconds to finish possibly in second for a $19,000 check is tough. Look for him to do well next week though in Anaheim.
Aaron Roy of Saskatchewan finished 6th at MSG this weekend. The 2 Time PBR Cananda National Champion almost made himself a bunch more money today in New York too with this 7 second effort.
I think Aaron will keep himself in the Top 10 this year. He’s talked about it for a while now and he keeps getting better each season on the BFTS. Turning 25 this year he’s got a long ways to go.
The PBR debuted the 2012 Season on YouTube as well live. In my opinion it went well with over 12,000 views thus far. I think that’s worth while for sure.
To see our Canadians in action from Round 1 which took place on Friday night check out the taping of the live stream here below. Most of our Canadians go after 47:00 minutes in.
Tyler Thomson and Dusty Ephrom also picked up some BFTS points this weekend both riding 2 bulls finishing in 20th & 21st.
That’s it for this weekend in New York though with the PBR. Look forward to even more of our Canadians this coming weekend in Anaheim, CA. Also the PBR Canadian Cup Series travels to Ottawa, ON to start off the year.
See you all down the road
