Best of the best to buck out at bullriding finals
IT will be champion vs champion this weekend at the Great Northern Bullriding Series final, where unridden bull Slide Out will go face-to-face with champion cowboy Braydon Welby.
The series final, which will kick off at the Atherton Showgrounds this weekend, is set to be an intense one as the north’s top cowboys take on some of the rankest bulls.
The last time Welby took on Slide Out was in Mossman, where he was bucked off seven seconds into the ride.
Series president Peter Brown said this year’s final was set to be a “spectacle” for everyone, with some of the best bulls Australia has seen ready for the arena.
“We are really keen for the final ride of the night with Braydon Welby against a pretty good bull Slide Out,” he said.
“We have some of the best bulls across Australia coming here for the night – it will be a spectacle.”
Other champion bulls ready to take centre stage are Warrior, who was voted the 2023 ABCRA Bucking Bull of the Year, Colt, who has won more money for cowboys this year than ever before; Capital Punishment, a seasoned campaigner who will buck the house down; and No Name, the new kid on the block who is set for greatness as a rank bucking bull.
