 Tonight marks the first event on the CBR Road to Cheyenne Tour of 2013 at the CenturyLink Center in Bossier City, La. Ticket sales are up from last year so we’re really excited to see what tonight brings. We’ve got a great lineup of guys and the best bulls in the sport so it should be good watching.
 The first guy out tonight is Jared Long. I’ve seen him make some great rides and he has a bull J.W. Harris was on at Cheyenne, 380 Greenhorn. Jared could be 90 on that bull. He goes away from his hand but Jared rides bulls pretty good either way.
 Corey Bailey’s a young kid with a lot of talent. I think he’s going to win a lot of money on tour this year. Tonight he has a bull called Lumberjack that he’s got a good chance to be 90 points on. The bull is one you want to draw and Corey’s got what it takes to ride him so it could be good.
 Former CBR World Champion Clayton Foltyn has a bull from Silvercreek Rodeo that should be really good. Clayton should be a lot of points if he rides him, too.
 Trey Benton has Pale Faced Jose that guys always like to get on. Chandler Bownds was 91 on him last year once. If Trey doesn’t stub his toe he could be a lot of points.
 Cody Teel has a bull of King & Herrington’s that should be good. Cody is fresh off winning his first world title so I’d say he’s got a good chance to make a great ride tonight.
 With this being the first event of the year, everyone’s looking to see who comes out on top and takes the early lead. When the season starts you always look at the guys with a history. For example, Josh Barrentine had a great year in 2012 and J.W. Harris is always going to be tough. There’s a handful of guys on tour that could be great if they stay healthy. Chandler Bownds is coming back off an injury and it’s always interesting to see how different guys recover. I personally think Chandler will be fine. We’ve also got some good young guys to watch on the tour like Cooper Davis and Corey Bailey.
 It’s sure to be a great start to 2013 tonight in Bossier City. The CenturyLink Center is great; it’s one of my favorite venues because it’s set up perfect for bull riding. The El Dorado has been the title sponsor of this event for years. They’re the only five-star hotel in the area and they really roll out the red carpet for us. It’s going to be a great event and we’re excited to be in Bossier again this year.
