PRCA Standings Shuffle: 34 Move Up In Top 15

Money talks. But in ProRodeo money shouts when competing for a spot in the Top 15 of the PRCA | RAM World Standings

Nobody knows this better than bull rider Jordan Hansen after jumping nine spots last week, from 24th to 15th, thanks to winning $16,691 during the first weekend in August.

The Canadian cowboy’s biggest haul came from winning $12,956 at the Mountain Valley Stampede Rodeo in Heber City, Utah, Aug. 3. (See related story)

Hansen followed that win by splitting the win at Pile ‘O Bones in Regina, Sask., for $3,335. He picked up another check by placing sixth at That Famous Preston (Idaho) Night Rodeo.

With the end of the regular season eight weeks away, ProRodeo athletes competed for more than $1.86 million at the 36 competitions held across North America July 29 through Aug. 4. 

Three ProRodeo Tour events featured payouts in excess of $100,000 – the Dodge City (Kan.) Roundup Rodeo ($328,786), the Mountain Valley Stampede Rodeo ($133,905), and Kansas’ Biggest Rodeo in Phillipsburg ($119,312).

The Big Sky Pro Rodeo in Great Falls, Mont., wasn’t on the Tour but a payout of $128,968 made a trip to Big Sky Country a worthwhile endeavor.

With so much money on the table, 34 cowboys saw their position improve within the Top 15. 

Cowboys know it’s easier to maintain a position at the top than it is to play catch-up when trying to qualify for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. Every dollar counts, and making the Top 15 in the world standings during the summer run establishes a solid base and builds a cowboy’s confidence.

With some of the biggest checks on the line in the coming weeks, big jumps like Hansen’s are sure to happen again.
