CALGARY, Alberta — Matt Triplett (Columbia Falls, Montana) sits in the lead after Day 1 of the Ranchman’s Renegades Charity Bullbustin’.
In Round 1 Triplett rode Grandpa’s Whiskey (Girletz Rodeo Stock) for 81.5 points, in the championship round it was Anika’s Pet (Big Chief Bucking Bulls) for 85 points. The No.8 man in the world standings looks to gain 60 world points on Wednesday night when the first two days of Bullbustin’ conclude at Ranchman’s. After Tuesday, Triplett is the only man to record scores on two bulls.
Second after Tuesday night’s competition is Gustavo Pedrero (Jalisco, Mexico). Pedrero put up 86.5 points on Chip Shot (Outlaw Buckers) to hold on to the lead so far in Round 1 but was bucked off Spin Box (Outlaw Buckers) in the Championship Round.
Koal Livingston (Burleston, Texas), Lachlan Richardson (Gresford, NSW, AUS) and Tyler Harr (Hazen, Arkansas) are tied for third after Tuesday night thanks to matching 85.5 point scores.
