Chandler Bownds and Ryan Shanklin Get Big Wins This Past Saturday

Fort Worth, TX (November 13, 2010)- The 2011 CBR Horizon Series was in Allen, TX, and Wichita Falls, TX, this past Saturday.  In front of a very good crowd in Allen, Chandler Bownds picked up the win during the afternoon bull riding after riding both bulls for 90 or more points.  Later in the evening, Ryan Shanklin outlasted the rest to win the event in Wichita Falls.  Bownds' win moved him to the top spot in the season standings, while Shanklin is currently in a tie for eighth after finding the winner's circle.

Chandler Bownds rode his long-round bull for 90 points in Allen, and he backed that up with a 92.5-point ride in the Championship Round to seal the win.  Ednei Caminhas didn't waste any time making an impact, as he also rode both bulls to finish second.  Neil Holmes rode both his bulls to finish third, while J.W. Harris and Clayton Foltyn rounded out the top five.

Ryan Shanklin registered an 82.5-point ride in the long round in Wichita Falls Saturday night, but he was one of only two riders to get a score in the Championship Round.  He was the only guy to ride both his bulls, and he picked up the win in the process.  Cody White won the long round, and the 87 points was enough to put him second for the event.  Lucas Dick finished third, while Jimmy Anderson and Kenny Westrope rounded out the top five.  Chandler Bownds kept his roll going by finishing sixth.

The CBR Horizon Series will be in Carthage, TX, this Saturday before the action shifts to Springtown, TX, on Sunday afternoon.  Keep checking for news, updates, previews, key match-ups, etc.  Also, be sure to visit our Facebook page if you haven't already.
