It's almost June, and the summer fun is ready to begin! This is
one of my favorite times of the year: all bull riding, all the
time! While the PBR Built Ford Tough Series is on its summer break,
we are on the road to PBR Touring Pro Division events. To me, this
is one of the most interesting and exciting times of the season.

Smackdown and Cooper Tires Grey Ghost, but I get to see the
up-and-coming bull riders. I have had the pleasure of watching
many of these young bull riders grow up on tour, and this has been
something I treasure. It's great to see someone start out and end
up being on the BFTS level, and eventually a Top 10 rider in the
For those of you who have not been to a PBR Touring Pro Event, it is something worth showing up for. Some of the best bull riders in the world attend these events to secure their position at the World Finals in Las Vegas, while some are just trying to secure a position within the BFTS Top 25, and some are even trying to make the big show for the very first time.
This year, we are having our 12th-annual Dakota Community Bank PBR Bull Riding Challenge. My wife Sarah and I, along with our sponsors, have prided ourselves on creating a great quality event for fans, riders, and stock contractors. We have 45 bull riders each night who perform in a long round and then a Top-15 short round.
The event will be held June 15-16, at the Bismarck Civic Center in Bismarck, N.D.
