CBR World Championships Full of Big Bucks


The top bucking bull competitors in the Palace Station Million Dollar Bull Team Challenge won’t be the only big bucks at next week’s Championship Bull Riding (CBR) World Championships at Cheyenne Frontier Days™.  The next CBR World Champion will walk away with a $100,000 bonus and there will be $90,000 in added money, $50,000 of which will be paid out to the last four riders alone!  The stock contractors get in on the action with $275,000 up for grabs in the Palace Station Bull Team Challenge.  All told, CBR will award nearly $500,000 dollars in just two days!

Prize money at the 2013 World Championships has increased dramatically over 2012, and more cowboys get a bite at the apple in the new 8-Second Format. In this format, any time a cowboy rides, he gets a paycheck. Since contestants at the World Championships event do not pay an entry fee, it provides a great opportunity for a cowboy to significantly increase his bottom line for the year. The 24 cowboys scheduled to compete at the World Championships next week have already earned a combined total of $311,000 in just twelve CBR Tour events on the Road to Cheyenne.


The CBR World Championships at Cheyenne Frontier Days™, part of Frontier Nights™, will be held July 22nd and 23rd. Tickets range from $23 to $58, and are on sale now. Log on to http://www.cfdrodeo.com for more info. Cheyenne Frontier Days™, July 19th –  July 28th, 2013.
