The purpose of the cut is to determine which 45 bull riders will be competing on the elite Built Ford Tough Series presented by Wrangler (BFTS). Upon the conclusion of every fifth BFTS tour stop the lowest ranked riders in the BFTS point standings are subject to the cut. They are dropped from the tour and replaced by the top five riders in the Copenhagen Bull Riding Challenger tour standings. Money earned at all lower level PBR tours - Copenhagen Bull Riding Tour, Enterprise Rent-A-Car Tour, Discovery tour and international tours - counts toward earning a spot among the 45 best bull riding athletes in the PBR.

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Jump to: navigation search Bull Riding in Del Rio, Texas Bull riding is a rodeo sport that involves a rider getting on a large bull and attempting to stay mounted for at least 8 seconds. The rider tightly fastens one hand to the bull with a long braided rope. It is perhaps the most famed of all the rodeo sports.
    edit History
    As a major component of rodeo , bull riding is thought to have been born in 1869 when two groups of cowboys from neighboring ranches met in Deer Trail, Colorado . The meeting was arranged to settle a dispute over which group was best at general ranch tasks. From this simple competition, rodeo was born. A pivotal moment for modern bull riding, and rodeo in general, came the Rodeo Cowboy Association (RCA) then the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA). Through this organization many hundreds of rodeos are held each year. Since that time, the popularity of all aspects of the rodeo has risen. In 1995 a separate organization was formed for bull riding alone: The Professional Bull Riders (PBR), which stages a large number of events including the annual

    Rodeo Events
    Definitely the most dangerous event in rodeo, bull riding requires a positive attitude as a cowboy engages in a test of nerves against the bull. A rope with a handhold braided in it is wrapped around the bull with a weighted cowbell hanging underneath, allowing the rope to fall free when the ride is complete. The rope is pulled snuggly around the bull's girth, and is kept tight only by the strength of the cowboy's grip. During the ride, the cowboy tries to stay close up on the rope's handhold to prevent his arm from straightening and his hand from breaking loose. A bull rider is disqualified for touching the bull with his free hand or bucking off before the end of the eight-second ride. A rider is not required to move his feet because staying on these loose-hided animals is difficult enough. However, if a bull rider does spur, he will be marked higher. Below is a list of contestants that have qualified for the Calgary Stampede.
