A Wrangler Network special video presentation.
David Sharp talks with Cody Teel and his family.
In 2012, a tall and lanky 20-year old from Texas named Cody Teel won the PRCA Bull Riding World Championship. Many will say that he was “born to bull ride”. His dad Robbie, a PRCA bull rider in the 1980’s, certainly had an influence. But like so many young people born after the death of Lane Frost, his interest in the movie 8 Seconds, created a desire to participate in the sport.
Although Cody never met Lane in real life, he tries to model his actions after the legendary bull rider…”never meet a stranger” and “always find time to talk to rodeo fans”.
Twenty-five years ago, Lane Frost died in a bull riding accident during Cheyenne Frontier Days. His life – and death – changed rodeo forever. The Wrangler Network presents a special tribute to Lane Frost “25 years in 25 days” to mark rodeo’s loss of one its most iconic figures. Check each day through July 30 for stories, photos and videos.
