Fort Worth, Texas (PRWEB) August 02, 2012
The 2012 CBR World Championships during Cheyenne Frontier Days are over a week behind us and yet fans are still talking about what an amazing event it was to witness. Now that the dust has settled and the final standings have been determined, there is confirmation of what we already knew. It was truly an historical event. Not only were the Championships part of the prestigious 116th annual Cheyenne Frontier Days, but the final tally of incredible rides is one for the ages.
There were a total of 44 qualified rides during the two performances and 20 of those were 90 points or better. In fact, 86.5 was the lowest score of the entire event. The great livestock providers of CBR showed up with their very best bulls, intent on providing the riders the ultimate challenge. But the riders were definitely up to that challenge and totally dominated their bovine rivals.
Eight-time World Champion, Don Gay, was an announcer for both shows and commented, “This was truly an outstanding event. I was so proud for Tuff and the CBR to be part of such a historical event like CFD and then come in and just put on a show of the caliber that they did. I was especially proud to see Wes Silcox, JW Harris and Josh Barentine come into this arena and perform like they did. It was truly a special night and I’m just happy to have been a part of it.”
The CBR arena, which was assembled in front of the west grandstand after the CFD afternoon performances, took nearly 40 CBR Staff and CFD volunteers to construct and they did so in less than an hour each day. That , in itself, was a truly remarkable feat.
General Chairman Rod Hottle said, "Cheyenne Frontier Days was proud to present the World Championship for CBR and the CFD fans enjoyed two days of top-notch bull riding. Also a special thanks for their support of the CFD Crisis and Scholarship Funds as part of the CBR Presentation of the Riders. This money will go a long way to help the mission of these two important CFD non-profits who support our CFD family".
