PARADISE VALLEY, Alberta — Tonight’s Paradise Valley Bull-A-Rama, sanctioned by the PBR in Canada is the second event this week in the Lloydminster area. Nearly all of the same riders from last night’s Wade Redden PBR Challenge in Hillmond are in the draw again this evening.
$5,000 in added money is up for grabs starting at 7:00pm. Get yourself out to the bull riding tonight as it’s always a good show! If that doesn’t geographically work for you then stay tuned for Gina Flewelling’s first bull riding recap on Everything Cowboy.
Until then, we have a guest bull pen writer today in Canadian Champion Bull Rider and Stock Contractor, Tanner Girletz.
Here are Tanner’s picks and thoughts on tonight’s long round.
Jason Malone vs Idiot Proof – This big black brockle face bull recently purchased from S&E Bucking Bulls has been great for us. He should be right in the door to the left. Look for the round win here as Jason rides really well and even better into his hand. I am guessing 87 points here.
Shay Marks vs Jiminy Hou – This black bull has been around for a while now. Sawyer has a rep of bringing the hard to ride ones and this ones a little different. He has days where he is miserable to ride but for the most part he is a pretty nice bull. Look for Shay after a great ride last night to ride this black bull for a 82-85 points should fit the litte man just right.
Old Timer vs Rockaholic – It’s been an on-going joke between me and Scott Schiffner that I call him Old Timer and he calls me kid. The same way he and my Dad, Kevin are. Today, Old timer has a bull called Rockaholic from Wild Hoggs. I have seen this bull a handful of times and he looks like one you can win on but you’re going to have to work at it. He should be out of the left hand delivery and around to the right but out through there a few jumps first. If anyone can handle it, Captain Canada can. Look for an 85 here and Scott getting another one in the short round.
Armando Davila vs Blue Print – This bull is a young bull from us that I am really high on. He should be around to the left but has went right. Armando is a good young talent and this will be a test for him. If he rides him look for the round win. If not look for a great bull score. He spins into Armandos hand so it could be a great score.
Scott Schiffner took on Blue Print in Marwayne earlier this year.
Cody Coverchuk vs Hail Storm – This is one of my favourite young bulls of Nansen Vold’s. He should be around to the right and really looks cool to ride. Cody just had a great night last night and this could also be a great score. Look for Cody to come back for another one and gain more points in this years PBR Canada standings.
