In the Bull Pen with Jason Davidson for Night One at the Bridge City Chrysler/LA Towing PBR Challenge
Lethbridge, AB: Jason Davidson of 3D Bullriding Inc. comes to us today with his thoughts on some of the key match-ups for Friday Night’s Bridge City Chrysler/LA Towing PBR Challenge at the Enmax Center. Tickets are available at the Enmax Center box office with the bull riding starting both Friday and Saturday night’s at 7:00pm.
Once you’ve read over Jason’s views, please add yours in a comment below! Here’s Jason with the call.
Zane Lambert vs FHRC834 I’m A Trouble Maker – Zane may be the hottest Bull Rider in North America right now who isnt on the BFTS Tour. He’s pushing $20,000 in earnings already this season and has a great jump on the PBR Canada Standings. This black bull of Lorne High’s is just what Zane needs to place him at the top of the leader board in Lethbridge. If 2013 is to be Zane Lambert’s year, he needs to take advantage of draws like this and win the money!
Tanner Girletz went a long ways on 834 in Kinsella last summer.
Cody Ford vs FHRC946 Hippy Freak – Another Lorne High bull in this solid right spinner. Cody has competed with the best on the BFTS Tour and at the PBR World Finals in the past. Cody wants nothing more than the lion’s share of the more than $25,000 in prize money at the Lethbridge event and this red bull can help him get there.
Kalispell, MT Event Winner Stetson Lawrence took on Hippy Freak in Elnora, AB last August.
Josh Birks vs CALGS30 Even Money – This matchup could be the long round win for night #1. Josh just twisted Josh Berezay’s superstar bull BRZY861 Bucking Fantastic last week and is coming into the Lethbridge event with a ton of confidence on his side. But this Calgary Stampede bucking bull has an impressive resume of his own, including bucking down the likes of Austin Meir and current PBR World Leader Shane Proctor. I like this match up and I am betting on the Aussie to win the long round Friday night.
Jordan Hansen got into that well with Even Money in Vermillion a couple weeks ago. That’ll be Josh’s trick to this one.
Ty Elliott vs BRZY548 Mambo #5 – Here is a new bull to 3D Bullriding events in 2013. I was able to catch a couple trips from Kalispell PBR courtesy of Everything Cowboy, and cannot wait to see this little white speckled bull perform in Lethbridge. Mambo #5 didn’t draw as easy in Lethbridge as he did his last couple trips so it will be a challenge for this little bull to get the veteran Ty Elliott to the ground. Ty will get a second bull in the championship round with this draw.
Mambo #5 had an impressive first couple of trips as a Two Bit Bucking Bull in Kalispell, MT.
Tanner Girletz vs HOGS111 Devils Henchman – Here is just a really solid draw for Tanner to get back into the swing of things after a week in Jamaica with his new bride. Tanner needs to look after business this season from start to finish, He is a veteran amongst his peers and must show that each and every event so he has a chance to drive home the brand new Ford F-150 compliments of the Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority and 3D Bullriding at the end of the season.
Cody Moore took on Devil’s Henchman in Coronation, AB last August at the Royal Rumbull.
