Bull Riders Canada is pleased to announce the BRC Central Tour which includes Season V events taking place in the provinces of both Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
The BRC Central Tour will kick off next month with the first event on June 8th in Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan.
"This tour is very simple, and was developed based on a desire and input from our Bull Riders, committees and our Fans. This is the next step BRC is taking in continuing to grow the sport of Bull Riding at both a national and provincial level." Explains BRC Manitoba Director, Ben Kinkead.
The BRC Central Tour will include all events in both provinces and with this being the pilot year, there will be no cost to the committees with Events involved.
Bull Riders will be required to enter and attend all BRC Central Tour stops to remain in good standing with the Tour. A maximum of 2 events missed (medical or drawn out) will be allowed.
Contestants will earn points for the Tour based on the event results. The Tour Champion will receive points equal to an event win at year end, which will count towards the BRC National Standings for the Finals. The Champion will also receive a trophy jacket sponsored by Wrangler and Crossfire Bullriding Promotions. Trophy hardware will be awarded to second and third place.
