Lane rides to win
MAREEBA’S Kerribee Park was packed with a 2000 strong crowd on Saturday night as they were treated to an excellent display of tough bull riding in the Great Northern Bullriding Series.
In a closed-in arena where spectators could nearly touch the competitors, some of the best bull riders in Queensland fought against the rankest bulls organisers could find.
Lane Mellers from Rockhampton put on a fine display of bull riding to claim the open bull ride title at this year's event.
In the novice bull ride, Travis Koolatah remained cool, calm and collected during his rides, giving him the win.
Tristan Pye remained strong in the junior bulls and was awarded the title while Ian Lamont emerged victorious in the mini bulls category.
