Round 1 Preview
Cliff Richardson will be out in the first section of the night. The 27-year-old will face off with He Reigns from McKenzie, Novak and The Jaynes Gang.
I have been able to track vision of this bull competing in the Bucking Bull Games earlier this year. He Reigns will be around to the right. Each out starts with a big kick to get clear of the chutes and then he settles into a fast spin. Kyle McDaniel made the whisle at the Exclusive Genetics Bull and Rider Tournament in October and the ride was scored in the high 80’s.
Nathan Burtenshaw has drawn Bad Company from 4 Wide Bucking Bulls and Hoffman. Video of this bull has been hard to find but he did buck at the RVT event in Witchita, Kansas earlier this year.
The powerful bull was around to the left putting Juliano Antonio Da Silva in the dirt in just over 2-seconds for 42.5-points. He did make life difficult for the Brazilian in the chutes but he was in there a long time with the rider on the clock and down to 7-seconds before he called outside. It has been 6 months since we have seen this bull at PBR level so we will wait to see what tricks he has in store for Burtenshaw.
