FORT WORTH, Texas – Tuff Hedeman is stepping out on his own.
According to a release issued Tuesday, the Tuff Hedeman Bull Riding Tour has been established and will include Hedeman’s annual stops in El Paso, Texas; Las Vegas; Bossier City, La.; and Fort Worth.
For the last several years, those events were also tied to the CBR. They have been removed from the CBR’s website. According to the site, the CBR will have just three more events on its regular season before the championship, set for July 23-24 in Cheyenne, Wyo.
“At this point in my life, it’s best for my family to be solely responsible for my destiny,” Hedeman said in the release. “My original goals have not changed since 1992. I’m still committed to producing bull riding events that give each bull rider entered the chance to win first and make sure the fans at every event are getting more than expected.”
Hedeman is a four-time world champion, earning three gold buckles in the PRCA and the 1995 PBR title. He was one of the PBR Founders and served as its president from 1992-2004. He moved over to the presidency of the CBR in 2005 and served in that role until 2011.
