The 10th annual Alix Icebreaker Bull-Ridin’ Classic attracted a packed arena this month, as $6,000 in prize money was awarded.
The big winner was overall champion Josh Birks, the Australian who earned 82 points and $2,138.50.
The runner-up — Zane Lambert of Westbourne, Man. — picked up 77.5 points and $1,657.75.
The four other riders who made it to the Short-Go bucked off in front of a full house on a warm Friday night.
Those other finalists were Jordan Hansen, Dustin Tompkins, Neal Wallator and Skyler McBride.
The Alix Arena Association produced the event, with Meston Rodeo Company running the bull-riding production.
