TEEPEE CREEK, Alberta – At the second PBR Canada event of the 2018 season, Jared Parsonage (Maple Creek, Saskatchewan) delivered a flawless 2-for-2 performance inside the Lyon’s Production Services Event Centre to take the title at Saturday night’s Teepee Creek PBR Classic, presented by Lyon’s Production Services.
Parsonage rode Ray’s Last Jump (Girletz Rodeo Stock) for 84 points in Round 1, before covering OLS Tubs Anika’s Pet (Outlaw Buckers Rodeo Corp.) for 87 points in the Championship Round to seal the victory.
In addition to his $3,368.30 in earnings for the first-place finish, Parsonage collected the $3,500 Lyon’s Production Services’ event bonus, leaving Teepee Creek with a $6,868.30 paycheck.
In 2017, despite multiple injuries, Parsonage maintained the highest riding percentage of all Canuck riders at PBR Canada events (66.6%). He went 16-for-24 during the year, finishing 2017 the No.8- ranked rider in the Canadian national standings.
While he failed to earn Canadian or world points in Lethbridge last week where he was seventeenth, Parsonage climbed to No.2 in the PBR Canada Standings courtesy of the 276.66 Canadian points he won in Teepee Creek. The Saskatchewan-native also netted 60 world points, now ranked No.74 spot in the PBR world standings.
Second, and the new No.1-ranked rider in the PBR Canada Standings, was Brock Radford (De Winton, Alberta).
To open the night, Radford first rode Pitch N Candy (Vold Rodeo/Prescott) for 86.5 points to win Round 1. In the Championship Round, he was awarded a re-ride on Mud Bog (Big Chief Bucking Bulls) in his first attempt, and went on to cover Darkness (Vold Rodeo/Prescott) for 83.5 points, one point back of Parsonage for the event win.
For his effort, Raford left Teepee Creek with $2,538.27, 30 world points and 220 Canadian points. Radford currently leads No.2 Parsonage by 80.84 points in the Canadian national standings.
In third was two-time and reigning PBR Canada Champion Zane Lambert (Ponoka, Alberta). In Round 1, Lambert rode City Limits (Outlaw Buckers Rodeo Corp.) for 84 points, which he followed with another 84-point score, this one on Oklahoma Blues (Girletz Rodeo Stock), in the Championship Round.
He earned $1,627.92, 20 world points and 156.7 Canadian points, and is now No.6 in the Canadian National Standings, 200.84 points behind No. 1 Radford.
Third-year pro Logan Biever (Claresholm, Alberta) finished fourth after putting up the highest score of the event, 88.5 points on Papa’s Rock Star (Vold Rodeo/Prescott) in the Championship Round. Biever began the night with a 78-point score on Crack (Outlaw Buckers Rodeo Corp.) and won $1,413.72, 15 world points and 140 Canadian points.
Rounding out the Top 5 was another Saskatchewan bull rider, Cody Coverchuk (Meadow Lake). Coverchuk was the last man to go 2-for-2 on the evening, riding Days of the Year (Vold Rodeo/Prescott) for 79 points in Round 1 and Brahma Boots Chrome (Outlaw Buckers Rodeo Corp.) for 87 points in the Championship Round.
Coverchuk takes home $872.87, 10 world points and 90 Canadian points. He now finds himself ranked No.4 in Canada, 112.5 points behind Radford.
Get it Poppin’ (Dynamite Buckers), raised and owned by 2011 PBR Canada Champion and current safety man, Tyler Thomson, earned the top bull score of the night. The bovine athlete earned a bull score of 44 points against Cooper Zur in Round 1.
