BC Bull Riders Do Some Winning in Their Home Province
Vernon, British Columbia -- Cecil and Carol Louis continued the Vernon event by hosting the BRC bull riding at their own property this past Saturday, April 16th. Louis Estates played host to stop number ten of Season IV for Bull Riders Canada and the British Columbia contestants made the most of the opportunity.
British Columbia veteran rider Marlon Williams, Mount Currie, BC proved once again that Father Time has not slowed him down; winning the long round with a thrilling 85.5 points on S&E Bucking Bulls' Trigger Happy.
In the short round, atop S&E Bucking Bulls' Split Shift Quesnel, BC rider Lane Cork was the only man to stay on; collecting $2700.00 for his efforts and winning the event as the only man to cover both bulls.
Thank you to Lane Cork for submitting the clip of his winning bull ride:

BRC caught up with Lane following the event to ask him how it felt to win and he replied “...well it was nice to win the event close to home and have friends and family around and was also much needed points early in the season. Thank you to Louis Estates for hosting the event!“.
After ten stops complete for the season, two BC bull riders are in the top five spots; two Saskatchewan riders are also in the top five while Manitoba’s Landon Lockhart remains as the Season Leader.
Looking forward to stop number eleven - the $8000.00 added event in Lamont on Saturday, April 23rd!
