SPRINGFIELD, Missouri — Canada’s current top bull rider in the PBR, Tanner Byrne of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan nearly won his first PBR Built Ford Tough Series event on Sunday evening.
Byrne came within 1.63 seconds of covering his last bull, which would have made him the only man to go 4-for-4 on the weekend. Instead, he finished second in the aggregate by five points to four-time PRCA Champion J.W. Harris.
The current PBR Canada standings leader left Springfield with 240 points towards the world standings and $9,260 in prize money. Those points and money move Byrne to 14th in the PBR and to $110,759 in earnings this season alone.
Fellow Canadian Aaron Roy finished in a tie for 14th in Springfield riding one bull of four on the weekend picking up $1,308 in earnings and 17.5 points. Roy sits 25th in the PBR’s World Standings having won $85,386 on the season so far.
