Torkelson on Fire
Lashburn, SK: In the second time in as many events, Jesse Torkelson is the champion of a SIGA 3D Bullriding Tour event. Tonight from Lashburn it was the 10th Annual Brad Phipps Memorial PBR.
An 88.5 point effort on the Two Bit Bucking Bull Superstar, Bucking Fantastic was more than enough for the win for Torkelson.
After winning the event, Brett Gardiner caught up with Jesse to share his thoughts on the win.
Up and coming bull, First Buckle helped North Dakota’s Zac Peterson into second place on the evening with his 88 in the Short Go. Zac was 76 in the Long Go and was brought in after Cody Coverchuk took himself out of the finals.
Tanner Byrne and Zac Peterson, on his second entry, tied for the long go win. Neither covered their short round bull on these entries but still finished the event in a tie for third.

From First to Sixth was actually won by only three guys that were double entered. Rounding out the top five was Tanner Byrne with his 84.5, while Jesse Torkelson was in again at sixth with an 83.5.
Zac Peterson got in a bit of a mess with Vold’s Rusty Nails in the Short Go.
