MARWAYNE, Alberta — Wow, I cannot believe we are already into April, the first few months of 2019 have seemed to fly by!
Here we are, right in the thick of things, with three Monster Energy Tour events under our belts so far we have already seen some “Monster” (see what I did there) action in 2019. The next stop on the PBR Canada schedule brings us to the 8th annual Marwayne PBR, going down this Friday and Saturday night at the Marwayne Arena.
The festivities kick off Friday evening with an ABBI. Canada bucking bull futurity featuring 48 of Canada’s best up and coming four-legged superstars. On Saturday night the PBR Canada Touring Pro Division rolls into town, which features a stacked roster of bulls and bull riders competing for a win worth 60 world points.
The action on Friday gets rolling at 4pm with the futurity followed by Jr Bull Riding and Steer Riding to finish off the night at 7pm.
The big show on Saturday kicks off at 6:30pm with local wild pony racing, followed by the PBR Canada action going down at 7pm. Tickets for Saturday will be available at the door for $20 with kids 12 and under getting in for free!
Be sure to get there early to grab a good seat, you won’t want to miss it!
Wacey Finkbeiner vs. 319 Plenty Kool
The reigning Canadian Pro Rodeo champion is of to modest start to 2019, he currently finds himself just outside the Top 25 in the PBR Canada National Standings. I’ve known Wace for a long time now and it’s only at matter of time before he catches fire, and Marwayne is the perfect place to start. He matched up with Plenty Kool from the Rafter 8 company over in Archerwil, Saskatchewan, the little black spinner should hope out there a turn back to the right and should be a day off for The Champ.
Logan Biever vs. 390 Pop the Latch
In his fourth year of PBR competition Logan is really beginning to find his stride, Bievs is sitting 13th so far in the PBR Canada National Standings and he will be looking to climb the ladder this weekend in Marwayne. He has drawn a awesome little bull from the Wild Hoggs firm called Pop the Latch, this bull usually will turn back right in the gate to the left into Logan’s hand. If Logan keeps riding the way he has been, and Pop the Latch has his day we could see a big time score here.
Fabian Duek vs. 59 Homeboy
It’s really good to see ol’ Fabio back in the draw again, he has been side lined for the better part of the last two years. After a shoulder surgery Fabian is chomping at the bit to get back down the road, I watched a video of him at a practice pen this past week and he looked like the Fabian of old. Saturday night he will be facing Homeboy from the Skori family just down the road in Kinsella, Alberta, this is a solid matchup. Homeboy usually spins to left, which is away from Fabian’s hand, but it should be no problem for the Paraguayan Flash.
Aaron Roy vs. 2784 Obvious Enterprise Savage Sensation
The three-time PBR Canada Champion has had a pretty decent start to 2019, he is currently ranked 20thin the PBR Canada National Standings and would like to make a move here in Marwayne. The bull he has drawn Saturday comes from the bearded wonder James Foley, and looks like a great draw for A-aron. Obvious Enterprise Savage Sensation is the name of the four-legged athlete and he should fit Aaron just right. Savage Sensation should turn back right in the door to left which should prove to be a small task for the Yellowgrass, Saskatchewan cowboy. Look for Aaron to be back for the Championship Round Saturday night!
