Top cowboys return for TEC

Twisted Rodeo - Tue, 01/27/2015 - 13:23

TIMED EVENT IS A SHOWCASE OF RUGGED TALENT BY PRORODEO’S STARS

GUTHRIE, Okla. – In three decades of featuring rodeo legends, the Timed Event Championship of the World has crowned just a dozen men as its champion.

That is as true an indication of the challenge the greatest all-around timed-event contestants face through the five-round, 25-run contest, scheduled for March 6-8 at the Lazy E Arena. It’s a grueling contest that features 20 invitees all battling over three days in heading, heeling, tie-down roping, steer wrestling and steer roping.

For the first time in its 31-year history, the TEC will feature a $100,000 payout to its champion, making the overall purse a whopping $200,000.

“You want to be consistent and don’t beat yourself,” said Paul David Tierney of Oral, S.D., the reigning titlist. “You just need to go out there and make the run you need to make.”

That practice-run mentality of being slow and steady is harder than it seems. Each contestant earns the right to compete at the Timed Event, and they’re known for being fast as well as consistent. It takes a much different approach to make a run at the title inside the walls of the Lazy E Arena.

A year ago, Tierney out-dueled another young gun, 23-year-old Clay Smith of Broken Bow, Okla. Both will be part of a field that features the greatest cowboys in the game today, including several 2014 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo qualifiers: Steer wrestlers Trevor Knowles of Mount Vernon, Ore., Clayton Hass of Terrell, Texas, and Dakota Eldridge of Elko, Nev.; team ropers Dustin Bird of Cut Bank, Mont., and Erich Rogers of Round Rock, Ariz.; and tie-down roper Cade Swor of Chico, Texas.

They’ll be joined by a who’s who of elite rodeo cowboys, including past Timed Event champions and record-holders. They all know it takes the right approach, the right discipline, to make everything come together through the three-day championship.

“It’s adapt, adjust and overcome,” said Daniel Green, a three-time winner from Oakdale, Calif. “It’s the guy that perseveres.”

It’s a true test of endurance, talent and rugged instincts to overcome each challenge along the way. There’s a reason the Timed Event is best known as the “Ironman of ProRodeo.”

The Timed Event Championship is one of the most prestigious events in Western sports. It was developed 31 years ago as a way to decide the greatest all-around timed-event cowboy. Its list of champions is a who’s who of rodeo’s greatest stars. The tradition continues March 6-8 and the fabulous Lazy E Arena. Tickets are on sale now.

The 2015 Timed Event Championship is sponsored by Priefert Ranch & Rodeo Equipment, Pendleton Whisky, Wrangler, American Farmers and Ranchers Insurance, Miller-Coors, Cox Communications, Bloomer Trailers, MacroAir, Cross Bar Gallery, Ram Trucks, John Vance Motors, Western Horseman Magazine, R.K. Black Inc., Absolute Innovations, Gist Silversmiths, Spin to Win Magazine, National Saddlery, Hot Heels, Rodeo Video, CSI Saddlepads, Sherwin-Williams, the Best Western Edmond, and the Fairfield Inn & Suites – Edmond.

The 2015 Timed Event Championship is a Lazy E Production. For more information on the Timed Event Championship or other Lazy E events, contact the Lazy E Arena, 9600 Lazy E Drive, Guthrie, OK  73044, (405) 282-RIDE, (800) 595-RIDE or visit www.lazye.com.
