Big Money Payouts For 2013 CBR World Championships In Cheyenne
 
Fort Worth, Texas (February 8th, 2013) ~ Championship Bull Riding is already a month into their 2013 “Road To Cheyenne Tour” with the new 8-Second Format that has already created a tremendous buzz in the bull riding industry. The new changes in the format insure that riders can and will make a living as a professional athlete in the sport of bull riding. No fees are required and every time a cowboy rides, he makes money. Now the CBR has announced that in addition to the $100, 000 bonus awarded to the 2013 CBR World Champion, the average winner at the finals during Cheyenne Frontier Days, will also win $50,000!  This average bonus is in addition to the $40,000 added purse for the event.
Furthermore, $275, 000 will be paid during the finals to the winners of the Palace Station Bull Team Challenge making it nearly half a million dollars paid out during the course of two days!
 "Championship Bull Riding is in the business of promoting the bull riding industry and in doing so delivering a series of events that will allow both our Bull Riders and our Stock Contractors a lucrative way to make a living,” stated Benny Cude, Chairman of the Board for CBR. “This is no different than any professional sport and all the athletes involved should get paid, just like they do in any other arena.”
“It is very exciting to award a $190,000 payout to the cowboys and the additional $275,000 for the Palace Station Bull Team Challenge,” said Cheyenne Frontier Days Chief Executive Officer Dan Cheney.  “Not many sports offer almost a half-million dollar payout, so the CBR ticket buyer experience is like no other in professional bull riding.”
The CBR Finals at Cheyenne Frontier Days will be held July 22nd and 23rd. Tickets will range from $23 to $58, and are on sale now. Log on to http://www.cfdrodeo.com for more info
