Professional Bull Riders Show Skill in SoCal

Thrills and spills filled the Honda Center this weekend when Professional Bull Riders held their 19th Built Ford Tough competition in Anaheim. Over 30,000 fans cheered the riders and enjoyed the antics of PBR clown, Flint Rasmussen. Tanner Byrne, a 23-year-old Canadian, won the competition while completing four rides in four rounds. They also competed in a Bull Fighters Only competition where a bull fighter, on foot, faces off against a 1500-2000 pound animal. Points for contact with the bull and, ultimately, survival.
