Here is a look at some of my key matchups for night one:
Tim Lipsett vs. 545 Timber Jam
We have yet to see a whole lot of Tim so far this season on the PBR Canada trail, but he is in the draw this weekend and is set up pretty damn good. He is matched up with Timber Jam from the Vold firm on the first night of competition. This is a really cool little bull, he is really electric and bucks hard. Timber Jam made his Unleash the Beast Tour debut earlier this spring in Billings, MT and had a great showing there. Tim has his work cut out for him, but if he can get it done we will see some big numbers.
Shay Marks vs. 592 Fergus
Shay has been one of the most consistent guys up to this point of the season, we always seem to see his name near the top of the leader board every weekend. He will be looking to continue that trend this weekend in Prince Albert. He has drawn a bull tonight from the Wild Hoggs crew named Fergus, I don’t really know the book on this bull but if he is from Wild Hoggs he is sure to be good. Keep an eye on this one, Shay is always a threat when in the draw.
Coy Robbins vs. 532 Stuntman Hank
Having the 2017 PBR Canada Rookie of the Year back in mix after taking the whole 2018 season due to injury is really exciting. It has been a bit of a rocky start for Coy so far but all the signs are pointing to him getting it rolling again here soon. He has drawn a bull again from the Wild Hoggs crew called Stuntman Hank, this is a pretty cool little bull that should fit Coy just right. Look to see the kid back in the championship round.
