Resistol Rookie Bareback Riding Standings Update: Despite Injuries, Rocker Steiner Builds Big Lead

BY MICHAEL SNOW @MICHAELSNOWTCC

Rocker Steiner has been battling injuries throughout his rookie campaign in the PRCA, but that has not stopped him from building a comfortable lead in the Resistol Rookie of the Year Race. While Steiner is in a good spot to get the Rookie of the Year title, his sights are still set on his first career NFR as he currently sits in eighth place in the PRCA World Standings.

1. Rocker Steiner, $66,198

When healthy, Steiner has been as good as any Bareback Rider in the world. Not only is Steiner in the Top-10 in the World Standings, but he also set the world record earlier this season with a 95-point ride. Steiner is back on the injury list after tearing cartilages that hold several ribs in place. He will be out for a few weeks as those ribs heal.

2. Waylon Bourgeois, $34,858

If Bourgois wants to get back into the Rookie of the Year Race he is going to have to do so while Steiner is out with injury. Bourgeois’ last big payday came at the Reno Rodeo where he won just under $5,500 after an 86.5-point ride on Two Buck Chuck. That check was the fourth consecutive ride that earned him a payday of over $1,000. In the eight rides since that round win in Reno, Bourgeois has failed to earn more than $600.

3. Bodee Lammers, $24,360

Lammers has been struggling of late and has not cashed a check of $1,000 or more since the Gladewater Round-Up Rodeo in early June. Lammer’s big win of the year came at the Red Bluff Round-Up where he won more than $7,000 after an 88-point ride on Virgil.

4. Coop Cooke, $15,664

Cooke had a great showing in Reno, winning $6,733 of his season earnings on two rides. Cooke placed second in both of the first two rounds in Reno after an 83.5-point ride and an 86-point ride.

5. Colton Clemens, $10,016

Clemens has two round wins on the season. The first was his biggest check of the year coming after an 88-point rodeo-winning ride at the World’s Toughest Rodeo in Columbus, Ohio. His second win came last month at the Great NW Pro Rodeo in Oregon.
