Championship Bull Riding
Championship Bull Riding (CBR) will be returning to Cheyenne Frontier Days™ to crown the 2017 World Champion. This is the culmination of the year-long 2017 Road to Cheyenne Tour where bull riders have accumulated points towards the world title. Up for grabs is one of the most prestigious titles in bull riding and a $100,000 bonus won in 2016 by Sage Kimzey.
The 2017 CBR World Finals is also the final event for the Million Dollar Bull Team Challenge where bulls are competing for prize money. Competing on a team consisting of three bulls per team, last year’s bull team winner, Rawson/Probst owned by Mike Rawson, two-time CBR Stock Contractor of the Year, of Martinsville, Texas, took home a check for over $100,000.
At the end of Tuesday night’s competition nearly half million dollars will be paid to bull riders and bull team owners making it one of the richest competitions in bull riding. The 2017 Road to Cheyenne Tour is televised in prime time for 30 weeks on FOX Sports Networks, with the 2017 CBR World Finals featured as the final two telecasts in the popular series.
