LONDON, Ont. – Rolling into London, Ontario to kick off the Eastern run. We have great matchups, and it looks like it will be a great bull riding event.

A lot of the same bulls we saw in Brandon, Manitoba, that are making the trip out East and we will see in London. Looking forward to a great time in front of sold-out crowds in Ontario.

Lots of great matchups in London, and we’re going to have lots of rides in the long round. Our wily veterans in Dakota Buttar, Jordan Hansen, I think should all have qualified rides.

These are some of the matchups that stand out to me for Round 1 of the event from London. Let us know your thoughts and your picks for the Cup Series event by tagging @PBRCanada on Twitter.  

Tickets are still available and can be purchased at the Budweiser Gardens Gate 1 Box Office and online at

Aaron Roy vs. Dealing After Midnight

Aaron has been on this bull before, rode him in Grande Prairie last year. He knows what this bull is all about. Should start to the right into Aaron’s hand, and then when he is riding him, towards the end, he could come back the other way to the left. Brindle bull with up horns. Looks like he fits Aaron’s style perfectly. He knows what he’s going to be in for with this bull. Look for an 85-86-point ride to set Aaron up great for the short round.

Cody Coverchuk vs. Almost Gone

Another rematch. Easy pick for me. Coverchuk is riding better than I think we have ever seen him ride in his career to kick off this season. He started off strong, and usually doesn’t come on strong until about halfway through the season, so look out for a Cody Coverchuk firing on all cylinders for a full season looking for that next Canadian Championship. This is a bull called Almost Gone, he rode this bull before, rode him in Lloydminster for an 86-point score. Look for the exact same thing here in London in Round 1.

Callum Miller vs. “@Originbrewingco”

Really good matchup, I watched this bull go last weekend. Right in the gate to the right, really, really bucks. One of the better bulls out in the long round which will fit Callum’s style perfectly. Callum is coming off his first World Finals appearance looking to get himself on a team for the Team Series events and this is the exact bull that he can show his stuff on. So right in the gate to the right, up underneath himself. Look for Callum to open up with that outside foot. Could be a possible round win, 88-89 points.

Tyler Craig vs. Night Stalker

Great matchup here for Tyler Craig. Night Stalker from the X6 Ranch should be right in the gate to the right, sucking back, really bucking, kicking through it. Should fit Tyler’s style really well. Look for an 87-88-point ride here to get Tyler back on track and back to his Canadian Finals Championship form that we are all looking for in this Eastern run for Tyler Craig.

Coy Robbins vs. Allemand Left

This bull gets lots of guys on the ground, he has kind of some ill timing, but Coy has rode him before. Coy knows what he’s all about. Should be away from Coy’s hand, right in the gate to the left. Coy rode him in Stavely a few years back with ease. With this one, I think Coy just needs to sit up, stay out over top of him and not get in too much of a rush to get down in the well, and not be too late. Just ride right down the middle like a jump kicker. Look for an 86-87-point score to set Coy up perfectly for the short go.

Nick Tetz vs. Unhappy Camper

Always fun to see these Happy Camper names within the bull draws. This bull goes back to Happy Camper in some sort of way. I watched him go at Coy Robbins’ bull riding, the Rose City Invitational, where Ashton Sahli took him to the whistle. Looks like a great bull, one that the guys are going to love. Really blows in the air, right in the gate to the right. Fading and moving. Away from Nick’s hand, but look for Nick to sit up there, style him really well. A nice bull that is going to fit Nick’s style awesomely. Look for him to open up with that outside foot, get on track, and watch out for Nick Tetz if he gets on a heater out East and gets back in the race for a Canadian Championship. Look for a round win, 88-89-point ride.
