First Round Results from the George Paul Memorial Bull Riding

Fort Worth, Texas (May 2, 2009) ~ On a perfect spring evening, a standing room only crowd welcomed the CBR to the Val Verde County Fairgrounds in Del Rio, Texas. The CBR did not disappoint, putting on a great show with outstanding bull riding and 15 high scoring, complete rides out of 45. World Champion, Cody Hancock was the round winner with a 90 point ride and received the chance to ride the bounty bull, 2008 CBR Bull of the Year, Cochise- for a $10,000 Prize. Cody who is the only rider to have ever ridden Cochise, which was four years ago, knows the infamous bulls habits and still was bucked off early in the ride.

All 45 riders will be back again tomorrow for another ride. After the two long rounds are totaled the top 15 will rider once again for the 2009 George Paul Memorial Champion Title. Don
