Great Northern Bull Riding series winner Raymond Provost.

It was down to either Raymond or Mareeba’s Wyatt Milgate to win the title in a close fought contest, however Raymond came out on top.

Great Northern Bull Riding Series organiser Peter Brown said the finals went right down to the wire with both riders putting in great efforts. 

“Both guys rode all their bulls so since Raymond came into the finals a head he ended up winning the title,” he said. 

“It was still a close contest coming down to the final ride.

“Both guys had good bulls and got the job done so that’s how she fell.”

Fort Worth Texas is next on the list for Raymond as he will try his luck against some of the best bull riders and rankest bulls in the world. 

After winning the series Raymond has decided that he will retire after his trip to Fort Worth and join the Great Northern Bull Riding Series as an official. 

Despite missing out in the finals 20-year-old Wyatt still has many years of bull riding ahead of him with more chances to come.
