The sunset was quite spectacular in Laramie Thursday night and no one enjoyed it more than a 23-year-old bull rider from Texas. Bayle Worden was matched with a Summit Pro Rodeo Co. spinning dervish called “Seven Come Eleven” at the Mr. T Xtreme Bulls event that opened the 2016 Laramie Jubilee Days. Worden kept his seat for 86.5 points and first place.
Summit is based out of Centennial, WY.
