SILVERTON, Texas – The best bull riders in the world have an urge to get on the greatest bucking bulls.

That happened Friday night at the Buck Wild Days Rodeo, when Cole Echols of Elm Grove, La., and Brad Harris of Udall, Kan., took the lead in bull riding with a pair of 86 point rides. Harris matched moves with Carr Pro Rodeo’s Rock Star, while Echols rode Carr’s Synergy, both showing the moves that have them standing out on the Tuff Hedeman CBR Cinch Tour, part of the Championship Bull Riders organization.

“It’s pretty good coming here,” said Echols, who travels the rodeo trail with Harris, Cooper Kanngiesser and Lucas Dick. “It worked out good for me.”

That it did. Synergy has been one of the top bulls in the Carr Pro Rodeo string, and cowboys who ride the bull tend to mark a lot of points.

“I didn’t get a good start, so I’m trying to get myself into the top 50 in the standings at the end of this season so I can ride in them buildings next winter,” said Echols, referring to qualifying for big winter rodeos in places like Fort Worth, Texas; San Antonio; and Denver. “If I can get in those, I can make a run at the finals.”

Friday’s ride was the just the second time Harris had mounted a Carr bull, but it wasn’t the first time he’d seen Rock Star, a 3-year-old bull Pete Carr recently purchased from Kanngiesser.

“This is my first time to this rodeo,” said Harris, 23, a rookie in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association. “We came here because we had good bulls. I’d seen that bull before, but I’d never been on him. He’s pretty good, and he’s got some growing to do.”
