Round 3 Of The 2014 PBR World Finals Is Rough On The Cowboys As The Bulls Take It To Them



The third round of the 2014 Professional Bull Riders World Finals were tough on the cowboys as the bulls were feeling a little frisky and out a pounding on each and every bull rider that stepped foot inside the arena at the Thomas & Mack on Friday night.  Last night we all thought the bull power was brought to a new level with the eliminator pen out but tonight proved us all wrong.  Everything that we thought we knew about what rank bulls were was made to be questioned by the bulls that bucked out tonight in the third round of competition!

One of the great bulls out tonight was KMH Bucking Bulls’ California Kid which dispersed Brady Sims well before the eight second whistle.  Jason and the Rodeo Round Up was able to catch up to KMH Bucking Bulls owner and operator Kaley Mae Hook while attending the Heroes and Legends Reunion that was part of the Ring of Honor Ceremony that started off the 2014 PBR World Finals week in Las Vegas, Nevada.  Find out what she had to say about having two of her bucking bulls selected to the World Finals and the stress that is created waiting to here from Cody Lambert, Director of Livestock Operations for the PBR, on if bulls will be selected to make the trip or not.

As I said earlier the bulls made the cowboys pay the price of making a living doing what they love tonight by only allowing 11 rides throughout the evening from the top 35 bull riders in the World.  In section one Ryan Dirteater started out with a nice 86.75 point ride aboard Jack Daniel’s Winter Jack for his second qualified ride of the World Finals.  J.W. Harris was quick to follow with a qualified ride aboard Hokey Pokey for an 88.50 score for his second score of the event as well.  Rounding out the first section was Brazilian Renato Nunes with a 89 point ride on Poker Face bringing the total of qualified rides in the first section to 3 total.

Sections two and three only posted one qualified ride in a group that included some of the top bull riders in the world.  The only qualified ride that was posted was that of J.B. Mauney’s re-ride bull Hou’s Back for the round winning 90.25 score after his first bull Long Haired Outlaw was giving him some trouble inside the bucking chute.  Ultimately, J.B. took the good with the bad but made it worth every effort to bring home the win for round number three.

The last three sections combined themselves for a total of six rides, two in each round, to round out the qualified rides for the third round of competition during the 2014 PBR World Finals.  In section 4 Kody Lostroh rode Compact for a 90 point score while Chase Outlaw was able to make the buzzed aboard The Short Bus for 83.50 points.  In section 5 only the first two riders were able to make the whistle.  L.J. Jenkins made a qualified ride on Ranga for 88 points and Cody Nance was able to garnish a score of 86.25 on top of Red Dingo.  The final section, section 6, saw the top two bull riders in the world continue their riding streak as Silvano Alves rode Here We Go Again for a score of 69.00 and turned down his re-ride option while Joao Ricardo Vieira rode Dakota Style’s Hy Test for 87.50 points.
