Roughstock Athlete of the Week: Ty Breuer Adds Another Badlands Circuit Finals Title
BY BRETT NIERENGARTEN @PRORODEOBRETT
Ty Breuer defended his bareback riding crown at the Badlands Circuit Finals in Minot, North Dakota over the weekend with 258.5 points on three to be named The Cowboy Channel’s Roughstock Athlete of the Week.
Breuer won the rodeo by 17.5 points thanks to rides of 87, 86 and 85.5 points. Best of all, the North Dakota native did it with a host of family and friends in attendance.
“It was a busy time,” Breuer told ProRodeo.com. “It was a great environment with a lot of family there. To be able to take the wife and kids is special. It was a really good week and a short drive home.”
He won nearly $10,000 toward the 2023 season and he’s a cowboy who knows every dollar counts after qualifying for the 2022 NFR, his sixth, as the No. 14 man in the world.
Breuer is used to seeing his name on top of the leaderboard inside the State Fair Center. He has won the Circuit Finals six times since 2014 with four of those coming between 2018 and 2023.
