After two years riddled with injuries, Ty Wallace was back in full force at Fort Mohave.

Breaking his right leg not long after the 2017 Wrangler NFR, bull rider Ty Wallace suffered a broken arm in Casper, Wyoming, the following year. Tired of the physical beating that comes with his profession, he then decided to take the rest of the 2019 season off.

But now he’s back at it, and the time off seems to only have helped, not hurt, the Oklahoma cowboy, who was recently named the 2020 Fort Mohave ProRodeo XTreme Bulls champion.

At the Classic Division 1 Xtreme Bulls event in Fort Mohave, Arizona, Wallace won the two-head average, riding for 90-plus points twice in one night. In his first performance, Wallace went 90 on Salt River Rodeo Company’s Rocky Road, a former Wrangler NFR bull, and in the short-round, he scored an impressive 92 points on Honeycutt Rodeo’s Braggin Rights.

A total of 182 points proved more than enough for the win, earning Wallace his second career Division 1 Xtreme Bulls victory and $13,244 in prize money, which will bump him up in the PRCA RAM World Standings from his spot at 25th.

“I’m really excited about this win,” Wallace told ProRodeo.com. “It feels good just to be healthy and get to go to the next one. It’s nice to get a win under my belt and feel good about the rest of the year. When you get a win like this it seems like you can keep your momentum going, and (Saturday) felt great. I’m better if I go to fewer rodeos and not get burned out.

“This win seems more deserving. I’ve been really trying to do things right and work hard. It’s funny, if you work hard, karma comes around and you get rewarded.”
