Cloverdale Rodeo competition promises to be a ‘nail-biter’ this weekend

If opening night was any indication of the Cloverdale Rodeo competition to come this weekend, spectators will be in for a nail-biting experience.

FULL DETAILS: Cloverdale Rodeo and Country Fair returns

New names are rising in rankings, giving champions from the 2018 competition a run for their money. With $300,000 in prize money on the line — the Cloverdale Rodeo is the second richest rodeo in Canada, behind only the Calgary Stampede — the competition is sure to be fierce.

Last year’s bareback bronc riding champion, Caleb Bennett, scored an 86.5 for his Friday night ride. But that places him fourth, behind Jake Vold’s 88.5, Richie Champion’s 87.5 and Connor Hamilton’s 87.
