Five-Time PRCA Champion Sage Kimzey to Replace Two-Time PBR World Champion Mauney on Team USA-Eagles

Final rosters set for the PBR Global Cup’s debut on U.S. soil
Ahead of the first-ever PBR (Professional Bull Riders) Global Cup on U.S. soil, the league has announced the final rosters for the six competing teams, with five-time PRCA Champion Sage Kimzey (Strong City, Oklahoma) set to replace two-time PBR World Champion J.B. Mauney (Statesville, North Carolina) on Team USA-Eagles.


Kimzey, who was selected by Team USA Coach Justin McBride (Elk City, Oklahoma) and Assistant Coach J.W. Hart (Overbrook, Oklahoma), will replace Mauney as the nation’s alternate. Mauney is currently recovering from a broken fibula sustained at the PBR Unleash The Beast event in Sacramento, California.
“It would be coaching malpractice if I didn’t try and find the best available guy to step in and ride one bull,” said McBride, who is a two-time PBR World Champion. “We both thought we would be doing a disservice to this team not to ask Kimzey.”
Team USA-Eagles also underwent another change, with Brennon Eldred…

Delivering three picture perfect bull rides, Idaho cowboy Roscoe Jarboe’s flawless performance stole the show. Jarboe’s 90.5 ride on 67B Bumblebee in the Shoot Out round granted him the win as he walked away with the bulk of the $30,000 prize money at the Eldorado Casino Shreveport Tuff Hedeman Bull Riding Championship presented by Landers on Saturday night at the CenturyLink Center. 
“I had three good bulls tonight and being my first tour event I had no idea what they were, but I like to ride them jump for jump and keep it simple, and it worked out for me tonight," continued Jarboe.
It was 22-year-old Jarboe’s national debut on the Tuff Hedeman Bull Riding Tour, and he quickly declared he would be back.
"It was my first ever event like this, bulls are great, and the money is great, and it’s a riding contest from what I heard, and I decided to try it out, and I'll be b…

Cody Nance Wins PBR Event in Denver in Mason Lowe's Memory

Cody Nance  earned his first-ever win at the PBR (Professional Bull Riders) Denver Chute Out Velocity Tour (VT) event during the National Western Stock Show Wednesday night after being the only rider to go a perfect 3-for-3 at the three-day bull riding.  
Nance immediately dedicated the victory to fallen bull rider Mason Lowe at the conclusion of the event. Lowe passed away on Tuesday night at Denver Health as a result of injuries sustained in competition when a bull stepped on his chest at the Denver Coliseum at the National Western Complex.   
“I’m just thankful that God gave us the ability to do what we love to do,” Nance said while tearing up. “Mason and I shared a passion for bull riding, and we got to do it together for a long time. I saw him ride lot of good bulls and I never saw him quit. I think he’d be glad that we came out and gave it our all tonight. This win means the world not only because it’s the best I’ve ever done in Denver, but doing it in Mason’s memory makes it even…
