Cheyenne Frontier Days has a fantastic history of excellence. It’s “The Daddy of ’em All,” the one every cowboy wants to win.
On Monday, the Championship Bull Riders organization announced it will have a two-day event in conjunction with the 115th Cheyenne Frontier Days. It’s the first year of the association between the longstanding epitome of ProRodeo and the stand-alone bull riding organization whose president is Tuff Hedeman, a four-time world champion bull rider.
Cheyenne Frontier Days has hosted a Professional Bull Riders Touring Pro Division event, and while the PBR’s minor league system, many of the top names in the sport were in Cheyenne. In July 2011, the bull riding will be part of the CBR’s premier series, the Cinch CBR Tour presented by Mahindra Tractors.
I’ve visited with people who are very excited about the change, but the one thing remains the same: For those who love bull riding, this association promises plenty of excitement.
