COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The 2020 leaderboard witnessed substantial changes the first full week of February as ProRodeo athletes nailed the highest scores of the season in bareback riding, saddle bronc riding and bull riding and the fastest team roping run of the season, so far. 

With $1.34 million worth of prize money up for grabs between 10 ProRodeo competitions across the U.S. Feb 3-9, competition was particularly stiff at the Fort Worth (Texas) Stock Show & Rodeo and Rodeo Rapid City (S.D.) as they presented payouts of $1,079,496 and $161,842, respectively. 

The fastest times and highest scores might not always make the record book, but they make a lasting memory for fans and competitors. With more than 700 PRCA competitions across the Western Hemisphere, there are plenty of opportunities to make a memorable ride. 

Although the prize money differs from one competition to the next, the judging remains consistent across the board.

In addition to the fame that comes with winning the most prize money, each ride was a chance to be the best of the week. Here’s a look at the highest scores and fastest times for each event held Feb. 3-9.

For the second week in a row, bareback rider Tilden Hooper made the highest-scored ride of the week, but this time he did it with one of the highest scores of the 2020 season so far. 

On Feb. 1 he scored 89.5 points on Frontier Rodeo Company’s Night Fist in Fort Worth. He returned to win the rodeo with a 91.5-point ride on Calgary Stampede's Agent Lynx for $20,000, Feb. 8. Now he shares the No. 1 spot on the leaderboard with Jake Brown and Jesse Pope who scored 91.5 points in Waco, Texas, and Des Moines, Iowa, respectively. 

Steer wrestler Dakota Eldridge stopped the clock in 3.4 seconds at the Dixie National Rodeo in Jackson, Miss., Feb. 8.

Team ropers Jaxson Tucker and Jake Clay made the fastest run of the 2020 season so far with their 3.5-second run at the San Angelo (Texas) Rodeo, Feb. 9. 

Saddle bronc rider Dawson Hay’s 91-point ride on Calgary Stampede’s Zena Warrior to win Fort Worth for $20,000 wasn’t just the highest-scored ride of the week, it’s also tied for the highest-scored ride of the 2020 season so far. Rusty Wright, Brody Cress and Ben Anderson all made 91-point rides at the National Western Stock Show and Rodeo in Denver last month.

Tie-down roper Tyler Milligan posted a 7.3-second run in Jackson, Feb. 5.

 Steer roper Vin Fisher Jr. made an 11.0-second run at the 75th Annual Yuma (Ariz.) Jaycees Silver Spur Rodeo, Feb. 7.

Bull rider Brody Yeary topped the 2020 leaderboard with his 92-point ride on Stace Smith Pro Rodeos' Bet On Black in Jackson, Feb. 8.
