The Toughest Sport on EarthTM returns to Rexall Place, Jan. 15
Professional Bull Riders (PBR) Canada is headed back to Edmonton, Alberta to open the 2011 PBR Canadian Cup Series, Saturday, January 15 at Rexall Place.
The best bull riders in Canada and the world – including two-time World Finals qualifier Zane Lambert of Westbourne, MB, and three-time World Cup contender Tyler Thomson of Black Diamond, Alta. – will take on the fiercest bucking bulls in the business for one action-packed night. Also expected to compete are Australian superstars Jared and Pete Farley, 2006 Canadian National Champion Scott Schiffner of Strathmore, Alta., and hometown favourites Kyle Primeau and Len Lefebvre.
“Going into this event I want to focus on the basics,” said Lambert, who finished second in the 2010 season, 877 points behind two-time Canadian National Champion Aaron Roy.
“I’m not going to worry about standings,” Lambert continued, “It’s too early in the season for that. My focus is to ride my first bull – it’s up to the judges after that.”
