Cody Custer is a world champion bull rider, a man who won the 1992 PRCA gold buckle. He’s also an amateur team roper who is scheduled to compete at the inaugural Timed Event Championship Pro-Am Team Roping, set for 4-7 p.m. Thursday, March 1, the day before the Timed Event Championship.
The competition will pit 20 amateur heelers and 20 amateur headers with their professional partners, cowboys who are part of the Timed Event competition.
Custer paid his $250 entry fee and will have the opportunity to rope with the greatest timed-event cowboys in the game. That means Custer can be teamed with any of the professionals, guys with whom he shared rodeo arenas for years.
That just makes it another big reason to be on hand to watch the pro-am.
