Benny Cudeís Buckers Top the Stats Sheet for the 2015 CBR Season

It is hard to imagine Cude Bucking Bulls having a better year than 2014. The 2014 CBR World Champion Bull Team, Cude Bucking Bulls, returns to Cheyenne this year for what Cudeís team hopes is an encore performance for the reigning CBR Bull Team Challenge World Champions.

Using eleven different bulls, Cudeís team landed within the top ten of the CBR Bull Teams for this season, but closer analysis of the bull stats for the Mahindra Road to Cheyenne tour reveals Cudeís buckers sit at the top of three of the eight divisional categories and in two of those categories they have the number 1 and 2 ranked bulls.

While the reigning CBR Bull of the Year 8043 Penny Lover, remained an important part of the story this year on the Mahindra Road to Cheyenne, a new super star emerged from the Cude line up of buckers and the anchor of Cudeís team for 2015 is no doubt #54 Cadillac Red.

#54 Cadillac Red leads the CBR in the category of High Marked Bull (rank score) for the CBR 2015 season  ried for the bull with the most outs (14) with his teammate No Hands, Red was ridden once in 14 attempts on the 2015 Mahindra Road to Cheyenne tour while gathering 7 High Marked Bull rewards.

While Penny Lover was accepting his Bull of the Year buckles and bows last year in Cheyenne, #54 Red, as he is known in the back pens, was also working hard for the Cude name. Red posted the highest marked rank bull score of the 2014 CBR World Finals at Cheyenne Frontier Days. He earned his 46.5 bull score when he bucked off former PRCA World Champion J.W. Harris in 6.39 seconds.

#54 remained unridden during the 2014-15 season until the George Paul Memorial in Del Rio, Texas where Lane Toon covered him for 87.5. Oddly, Cadillac Redís only qualified ride came in an outdoor arena. With most of the Mahindra Road to Cheyenne tour being held indoors, the outdoor venue in Cheyenne might be a factor in bullís and teamís performance.

No doubt, 929 No Hands, a bull bred and raised by CBR President, Carl Wilburn, leads the CBR this season in qualified rides. Eight times the CBR bull riders heard the whistle with five of those being 90 points or better.  No Hands was overshadowed by Cadillac Red this year in statistics on Cudeís team, but as a bull the cowboys know and like, he will be no doubt be a factor, and a favorite, next week in Cheyenne.  

In addition to his team bulls, Cudeís 07X Glory was selected by Tuff Hedeman to back up Dougie in round one as the first alternate to the Mahindra Road to Cheyenne Bounty Bull on Monday night.

Benny Cude, an oilfield services business man from the Woodlands, Texas entrusts his team on the road to bull man extraordinaire, Mike Jones. Cudeís buckers reside at Cudeís 7 Rocking X Ranch in Priddy, Texas where he breeds and raises bucking bulls. Cudeís bulls are regulars on all the professional circuits including the PRCA where his Championship Pro Rodeo Company produces pro rodeos.

Cude, the current Chief Executive Officer of Championship Bull Riding has been providing stock for CBR since 2009 and was instrumental in developing and implementing the CBR Bull Team Challenge concept on the Mahindra Road to Cheyenne.
