Vayro and Young Enjoy Winning Weekend
GRENFELL, Saskatchewan and GRANDE PRAIRIE, Alberta -- Over $10,000 was paid out in Bull Riders Canada competition this weekend between two events across two different provinces.
Bull Rider Chris Young of the aptly named Bullsbrook, Western Australia, was the biggest winner bringing home nearly half of that added money. $4,902 to be exact courtesy of an 80.5 point ride at the Pomeroy Guitars and Wagons BRC Challenge on Saturday.
Originally scheduled for both Friday and Saturday night, Friday's event was re-scheduled to Saturday due to excessive rain and flooding in parts of the city.
Young moves into the BRC Standings inside the top 40 with the win hoping to gain enough points to be inside the top 30 when October's BRC Finals III come around.
Vermillion's Mike Ostashek picked up 270 points towards the standings moving him up to 20th but likely more concerning to him was the nearly $4,000 in prize money. Austin Nash, Kale Marks and Jacob Stahl tied from third to fifth taking home over $1,200 each.
At the second stop of the weekend in Grenfell, SK Flint Vayro emerged victorious as the only man to ride both bulls. Impressive scores were added up by his name to the tune of 169.5 from his 83.5 on Lazy S & Bonkowski's Stubby in round one and the big time 86 on Lazy S & Bonkowski's Little Joe in round two. Vayro earned over $1,500 for his efforts which you can watch in the video below courtesy of Ranchman’s Cookhouse and Dancehall Inc. in Calgary, Alberta.
Vayro moves to 11th in the BRC National Standings with his 390 points from the win. Quinton Bock, JC Curley and Wyatt Laughlin rounded out the money-winning top four.
