Erich Rogers suffered a serious thumb injury over the last few days and will miss the CINCH Timed Event Championship.
He will be replaced by Cash Myers, a CTEC veteran who hasn’t been part of the prestigious field for several years. Myers has finished among the best in the business in the all-around, steer wrestling, tie-down roping and steer roping. He is a seven-time qualifier to the National Finals Rodeo and a six-time finalist at the Clem McSpadden National Finals Steer Roping.
Rogers, who suffered the injury while competing in Tucson, Ariz., had surgery Monday. He should return to action, but it won’t be before the CTEC, which takes place Friday, March 4-Sunday, March 6, at the Lazy E Arena.
