Professional Bull Riders rode into Honda Center this weekend for the Ford Built Tough competition at Honda Center.
The 35 top bull riders in the world competed with each other against the world’s toughest bulls before over 30,00 wildly cheering fans of all ages.
The number one ranked bull rider, Matt Triplett, winner of the Bulls on the Beach Contest in Huntington Beach last summer, was the only rider to successfully ride all three preliminary rounds and the championship round to maintain is top ranking and rope in over $30,000 in prize money.
The three bull fighters who are willing to sacrifice their bodies to protect fallen riders had their work cut out for them as the bulls seemed to have the upper hand on almost every ride. Flint Rasmussen, THE clown of PBR, dazzled the crowd with his dancing, singing, acrobatics and comedic banter. The tour moves on to Saint Louis next week.
