J.W. Harris Wins Third Consecutive PRCA Bull Riding World Title
The 2010 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo is in the books, and J.W. Harris once again stood above the rest in bull riding. He clinched his third consecutive PRCA World Title after round nine, and he put the icing on the cake with another qualified ride in round 10. Harris won the average at this year's WNFR after going 8-for-10 against a really strong pen of bulls. He became the first bull rider since Don Gay to win three consecutive PRCA Bull Riding World Titles.
Congrats are also in order for CBR rider Ardie Maier who won the last round with a 91.5-point ride aboard Scent Loc. Tyler Smith finished second in the round with a 90-point ride on Bring It. Steve Woolsey suffered a concussion last night, but not before he finished third in the round with 87.5 points. World Champion J.W. Harris finished fourth, while Wesley Silcox rounded out the top five on night 10.
I already mentioned above that Harris won the average after going 8-for-10 at this year's WNFR, but credit also goes to Corey Navarre for battling back to finish second in the average. He rode six out of 10 bulls. Wesley Silcox battled back after a slow start to finish third in the aggregate, and Cody Whitney finished fourth after riding five bulls. Bobby Welsh ended fifth in the aggregate.
Now that the 2010 WNFR is over, it's time to shift the focus back to the 2011 Championship Bull Riding season.
