RODEO’S ELITE READY TO CHASE THE $100,000 PRIZE FOR THE WINNER

GUTHRIE, Okla. – The incentives at the Timed Event Championship of the World are great for the world’s greatest cowboys.

From the challenges set forth through the rugged competition to the opportunity to play their game in one of the most storied arenas in rodeo, the annual championship is a destination for the elite timed-event contestants.

Add into the mix a first-time purse of $200,000 – with $100,000 going to this year’s average winner – and it’s easy to see why 20 men who make up 39 combined gold buckles will be part of the 2015 Timed Event Championship of the World, set for noon and 7:30 p.m. Friday, noon and 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. Sunday.

“Any time a cowboy can win more money, it’s good,” said Daniel Green, a three-time champion from Oakdale, Calif. “The Timed Event is not an easy deal to win; it’s really difficult. It takes so much that has to go right.

“My hat’s off to the owners for boosting financial support for the event. Being as tough as it is and a World Championship event, it should pay in that range.”

The players compete in five go-rounds and must make runs in heading, tie-down roping, heeling, steer wrestling and steer roping in each. It is dubbed the “Ironman of ProRodeo” because of its rugged nature. Spread over just three days, it’s a test of talent, durability and endurance.

The field includes some of the brightest young stars in rodeo, including reigning champion Paul David Tierney of Oral, S.D., and the 2014 reserve champ, Clay Smith of Broken Bow, Okla.

They’ll test their talent against an amazing list of top cowboys, including Green; 27-time world champion Trevor Brazile of Decatur, Texas, who owns 21 Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association titles and a record six Timed Event crowns; five-time winner K.C. Jones of Burlington, Wyo.; two-time titlist Kyle Lockett of Visalia, Calif.; and 2010 champ Josh Peek of Pueblo, Colo.

This is the one event in ProRodeo where the greatest ropers will wrestle steers and where elite bulldoggers and a Linderman Award winner will test their other skills in an action-packed weekend of world-class talent.
