Bobby Mote is one tough son of a gun. Just a couple months ago, he underwent surgery to repair a sports hernia, which he suffered last summer and played with through his fourth world championship. See the story HERE.
Mote has returned to the arena, but he admitted Sunday that he may have done so a tad bit too early. It looks as though he’s re-aggravated the injury. And just like he did over the 10 days in Las Vegas for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, the Oregon cowboys summoned up the strength, courage and fortitude he needed to win his first Dodge National Circuit Finals Rodeo title.
So will he take time off now?
Nope. In fact, he plans to compete in both bareback riding and team roping at all the upcoming rodeos that are part of the Wrangler Million Dollar Tour.
Of course, he’s tougher than most.
