Rain or shine the show must go on and that is exactly what took place Saturday night in Giddings, TX. The Lee County Sheriff’s Posse hosted the CBR Fury on the 7th and the fans braved the weather as show time began.
Cody Jesus led the long round with 89.5 points on Dirty Blonde owned by D4 Cattle Company/Brown Ranch, followed by Devers TX native DJ LaFleur with 87 points on GEM Bucking Bull Lil Cranky.
A bull called Miller Time of Diamond Cross Rodeo was drawn by JT Moore of Alvin to earn a score of 85. Also of Diamond Cross, Colorado Chrome took Ben Jones for a ride, scoring 84.5 points, tying with Brandon Parrish on Blind Spot of Championship Pro Rodeo/Cude Bucking Bulls.

Clayton Appelhans of Colby, KS brought back to short round based on time, drew Frenzel Bucking Bulls Mad Max. Appelhans has been hitting the roads hoping for the chance to make the CBR World Finals, and the 81 points he received solidified his qualifying spot in Cheyenne.
