Another announcement came down the pipeline today from the Elite Rodeo Athletes Rodeo Association regarding the upcoming 2016 season tour roster. As part of a weekly release of all seven rodeo events we will know by next week exactly who all the contestants will. Today’s announcement introduces all of us to the members of the women’s barrel racing and the tie-down roping events. Everything will be set for the upcoming season after the bull riding tour roster announcement scheduled for next week. At that point we will know who we can see in action during the 16-stop inaugural first season that will come to a conclusion at the first ever World Finals in Dallas, Texas in November of 2016!
The announcement of the tie-down event tour roster today definitely raised some eyebrows and will spotlight some of the very best from past and present in the business of the “big boy” sport of professional rodeo. The impressive list brings 41 total World Championships to the table with the likes of Trevor Brazile, who brings 21 World Championship titles along with him, and the legendary Fred Whitfield that brings a total of 8 world titles with him. If that is not enough to peak your interest this roster will also include the likes of Cody Ohl and Stran Smith among others!
When we talk about setting the bar and taking the rodeo industry to a whole new level you have to look no further than what was released today about the women’s barrel racing tour roster announcement. Not only will you find some of the very best past world champions in the industry today but, surprisingly, the ERA has given a very special opportunity to a talented young barrel racer that made a name for herself during last year’s RFD-TV’s The American. You can see everyone from Charmayne James, Fallon Taylor and Sheri Cervi to the much anticipated return to the professional rodeo arena of the young superstar Chayni Chamberlain. That announcement alone will send the loyal fans of the professional rodeo industry to tune in to FOX Sports to see these talented young ladies take the reins and run for their lives!
Next week the Elite Rodeo Athletes rodeo organization will round out their 2016 tour roster with the announcement of the final event, the crowd favorite, the bull riding. You can bet that with the six events and the rosters for them announced so far that huge things are set to make shock waves throughout the community once again. Stay tuned to the Rodeo Round Up for all breaking news and to see who will make it into the tour roster for the bull riding event in just one week from now!
