Calgary, AB: With everything that’s been going on in Calgary over the past two weeks it was anyone’s guess as to how things would look last night at the 14th Annual Ranchman’s Renegades PBR Bull Bustin’. As it’s been though with everything else thus far, the event was overwhelmed with support with more than every seat in the stand filled up. If you’ve never been to Ranchman’s Cookhouse and Dancehall before, you need to get there. If you’ve never been to the Bull Bustin’ before produced by Cody Snyder, it’s one Bull Riding in Canada you need to experience.
For those of you who haven’t been or didn’t go last night, or just want to re-live it all, these are the highlight’s from night one of the PBR.
Nathan Schaper of Grassy Butte, ND leads the event standings after his efforts last night. Schaper rode Armstrong’s Van Hawk Oilfield for an 82 in the long go and followed it up with a huge 91.5 on Girletz’s Bull they call Finkle’s Dog who was previously unridden.
This is what Nathan had to say after the event.
Coming in second place on the evening was Zane Lambert. As Zane said after the event, he always looks forward to his birthday as he always gets to ride at this time of year. Last night in the short go, he rode the Girletz’s PBR World Finals Bull First Nation Sensation for an 88 to finish with 170.5 points on two.
In third on the night was BC’s Kyle Lozier. It was Outlawbuckers’ Pushin’ It in the Long go for an 82.5 while it was an 86 on Girletz’s Forget me Not in the Short Go for 168.5 on two.
Ty Elliot sits fourth and already has a $1,000 check in his pocket after riding the bounty bull in the short go. He’s got the lowest total on two but had a tough time walking after he rode. He’s been having some trouble with injury lately but pushing through it all as best he can. Ty is still winning more than the average guy too at this time of year. This is his 86 on Armstrong’s Bright Lights in the long go which sits second thus far.
With a win in the long go but a buck off in the short go, Jesse Torkelson rounds out the top five. He was about a half second from being there on Armstrong’s Cossa Nostra but that 87.5 on Outlawbuckers’ Silver City will get him a good check in the long go either way.
Night two of the Ranchman’s Renegades PBR decides our Champion. This event is one where cowboys may enter both days for basically a chance to win first and second. The total on two decides the winners where $23,000 in prize money will be split up eight ways.
Be there. 7:00pm.
