Pool "B" of the Stampede rodeo gets going Tuesday afternoon down at the grounds.

No locals are involved, which means casual fans probably won't know who's who without a program.

Our own "Rodeo Prognosticator," Mike Labelle, explains why there's so few Canadians in the second round.

"If you see the way that the dates of things have run down so far this year, we had our Canada Day happen early, so the 4th of July, which is a big rodeo run for the Americans, a lot of them asked to be in Pool "B" so they could make more money in rodeos on their side of the border. So, we're going to see a lot more of them in Pool "B."

Labelle says fans won't be disappointed as they'll see plenty of champions in action.

But he says in bull riding you will see at least one Canadian.

"We do have a token Canadian in Bo Hill from Montana. But he's up against the PBR Champion in J.B. Mooney, and World Champions in Wes Silcox and J.W. Harris. In the tie down roping, Tuf Cooper, he's back as well as Shane Hanchey, two World Champions. But the Canadian Morgan Grant from Granton, Ontario, who won the Stampede last year. He's in Pool "B," so that's going to prove to be interesting."

He says bareback riding is the event to watch as well with a slew of former World and Stampede champs taking part.
