First Ever Bulls on the Border Championship Bull Riding Coming to Rodeo Grounds

Untitled-1Less than 20 miles from the Mexico border sits the town of Los Fresnos, Texas, the site for the first ever Don Johnson Ram CBR Bulls on the Border Bull Bash. The event happens Saturday, September 14, 2013 at the Los Fresnos Rodeo Grounds in Los Fresnos, Texas.

New to the Championship Bull Riding (CBR) tour the event will be a cross-cultural blend of bull riding and music. Gates open at 6 p.m. with bull riding action starting at 7:30. Following the bull riding will be a concert featuring Country up-and-comer Brett Eldredge and Mexican Tejano sensation Siggno. Competitors from Mexico and Brazil will join Americans hoping to win a championship.
The bull riding will follow the CBR’s very popular tournament style of competition. The first round will feature 24 of the brightest stars. Making it to the eight-second mark and getting a good score is the goal of every bull rider, but it’s critical for these riders who are attempting to advance to the next bracket in the tournament. The semi-finals will see 12 riders trying to be among the top four who compete in the finals where a big bonus will be paid to the Bulls on the Border Champion.

Along the way, riders are accumulating points in the CBR World Standings. The Bulls on the Border is the second event on the Road to Cheyenne Tour, so winning here will give the champion an early leg up in the standings and momentum for the rest of the season, which concludes next July at Cheyenne (Wyo.) Frontier Days where the world champion will be determined.
