The local area is well represented on Team Canada going into the 2022 PBR Global Cup bull riding event.
The rosters that will compete for among other things the title of “toughest nation on dirt” have all been set.
A veteran Team Canada includes Jordan Hansen of Okotoks, Brock Radford of Dewinton and will be led by two-time Canadian Champion Cody Coverchuk of Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan, 2020 PBR Canada Champion Dakota Buttar of Kindersley, Saskatchewan and Jared Parsonage of Maple Creek Saskatchewan.
Edgar Durazo who now lives outside of High River will compete for Team Mexico.
The team tournament debuted in Edmonton in November 2017, visited Sydney, Australia, in June 2018, and made subsequent stops in Arlington in February 2019 and 2020.
At the 2022 PBR Global Cup USA, each team will be comprised of five competing riders, all selected by the nation’s coach.
The one-day event will feature two rounds of competition, where three riders from each team will attempt one bull. Throughout those rounds, every rider from each team must attempt a minimum of one bull. Following the initial rounds, each team will select one rider to attempt the nation’s final bull in the bonus round.
The 2022 PBR Global Cup USA Champion will be the team with the top combined score through their seven outs.
This is the fifth edition of the PBR Global Cup and it'll make its third stop at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on March 5, 2022.
