FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PBR Heads to Lashburn August 10, 2012
LASHBURN, Saskatchewan (July 30, 2011) – The Professional Bull Riders (PBR) will be at the Lashburn Sports Grounds for the 9th annual Brad Phipps Memorial PBR Canada Touring Pro on Friday, August 10 at 7:00 p.m. Lashburn will host one action-packed night full of big rides and rank wrecks with riders competing for over $10,000 in prize money.
The PBR Canada Touring Pro (CTP) is the developmental tour of PBR Canada, where established veterans and newcomers to the professional ranks compete against some of the most famous bucking bulls. The CTP gives riders the opportunity to compete in PBR Canada-sanctioned events while earning money to qualify for the Canadian Cup Series and prestigious Canadian National Finals. Expected to compete are PBR Canadian Champions Tyler Pankewitz of Warburg, AB; Scott Schiffner of Stettler, AB; Tyler Thomson of Black Diamond, AB, and Beau Hill of West Glacier, MT. The highlight from the bull pen will be Gingas Kong (Skori Bucking Bulls).
With the competition starting at 7:00 p.m. the evening will feature a Championship Round where only one rider will claim the event title. This is Stop #5 on the 2012 3D Bullriding Tour presented by SIGA, where a $5000 bonus and a new Ford truck will be awarded in Lloydminster in October. The Brad Phipps Memorial PBR is also one of three events on between August 9 & 11 that is part of the August PBR Canada Built Ford Tough Series Incentive. The rider with the most money won between the three events will be invited to compete at the San Antonio, TX BFTS Event later in August. This is not a rodeo; it’s the Toughest Sport on EarthTM.
