PRINCE ALBERT, Saskatchewan – Delivering the high-marked ride of the event, Cole Wagner (Valier, Montana) surged to an early lead at the Clunie-Cooper Memorial PBR in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, following the opening night of competition.

As the first rider to reach the 8-second mark, Wagner covered Turn Back Time (Flying Four Bucking Bulls) for 85 points to win Round 1 and capture the event lead.

As a two-day event, both Round 1 and the championship round take place each night with the overall winner being crowned with the highest aggregate score. With the two days, a bull rider can potentially win both first and second place.

Second went to Jake Gardner (Dawson Creek, British Columbia).

Rebounding from a first round buckoff, Gardner climbed the leaderboard when he rode Baja Midnight (Vold Rodeo) for a championship round-best 84 points.

Three-time PBR Canada Champion Aaron Roy (Yellow Grass, Saskatchewan) is third after riding Vertigo Spy (Vold Rodeo) for 83 points in front of his home province crowd.

Also recording a qualified ride in the opening round Tim Lipsett’s (Lumsden, Saskatchewan) 83-point ride on Finning Hou’s Deacon (Flying Four Bucking Bulls) placed him fourth.

Rounding out the Top 5 was Weston Hartman (Mandan, North Dakota).

As the lone other rider to record a score in the championship round, Hartman’s Top 5 result was backed by an 82.5-point ride on Son of Odin (Wild Hoggs Bucking Bulls).

The Clunie-Cooper Memorial PBR in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan at the Art Hauser Centre, part of the PBR Canada’s Touring Pro Division, concludes Friday night, May 31, starting at 7:00 p.m. CDT.
