LLOYDMINSTER, Saskatchewan — With $20,000 in added prize money up for grabs and the $5,000 Fox Drilling Grudge Match, this weekend’s Wrangler Bull Riders Canada Finals III presented by The Patchwork Group is one of the highest paying bull riding events in our nation.
30 bull riders have qualified from every province stretching from British Columbia to Ontario along with international competitors from New Zealand, Australia and Mexico.
Each rider competes both Friday and Saturday evening starting at 7:00pm in the first two rounds of competition. On Friday, the top five bull riders in the standings compete in the Fox Drilling Grudge Match. A qualified ride from a bull rider means $1,000 in their pocket. If the bull wins, the contractor takes home the prize.
The top eight bull riders from the first two rounds qualify for the Championship Round where the aggregate winner takes home the finals champion buckle. The BRC National Championship is awarded to the man who earns the most points between the season and finals combined.
A bull rider winning everything this weekend could head home with over $10,000 depending on potential ground money and the grudge match.
Tickets are available through the Lloydminster Exhibition HERE.
