NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (June 17, 2015) – Nick Guy loves North Platte. Not that the Wisconsin cowboy wants to move there, but he sure loves spending a couple days there every June.
The 32-year-old cowboy leads the first go-round in the steer wrestling after the first day of competition at the 2015 Buffalo Bill Rodeo, and it’s not the first time he’s won money in town.
Guy was the 2013 Buffalo Bill Rodeo co-champion, as well as winning several checks at the rodeo before.
“North Platte has been good to me,” the Sparta, Wis., cowboy said. “It just seems like this time of year I hit a lick and get rolling. It’s a good time to start winning. North Platte is such a big rodeo, with 92 entries (in the steer wrestling), the go-rounds will pay almost $2,000, and that’s big money.”
Guy, who qualified for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in 2010 and 2014, is currently ranked 12th in the world standings, and this is his best rodeo year yet.
