1. Hardwick tops talented WCC Spanish Fork field
SPANISH FORK, Utah – Since joining the PRCA in 2011, bareback rider Seth Hardwick has been chasing a coveted bid to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo – but has come up empty.
That appears to be on the verge of changing in 2015.
Hardwick has been near the top of the Windham Weaponry High Performance PRCA World Standings the last several weeks and only helped his cause at the May 30 Wrangler Champions Challenge, presented by Justin Boots, at the Spanish Fork Fairgrounds.
The Laramie, Wyo., cowboy registered an 86-point ride on Bar T Rodeo’s Rockin Ruby to capture the title before a capacity crowd of 8,400.
“I had never even seen that horse before,” said Hardwick, 26. “I talked to Caleb Bennett about him because he knows a lot about the Bar T horses and he told me I had a good one. It was an awesome ride. I didn’t know if my score would hold up. There were some good guys and some great matchups after me, but it all worked out.”
Hardwick moved up one spot – to fourth – in the June 1 world standings, thanks to pocketing $5,440 at Spanish Fork.
“It’s absolutely great to fill up the bank account,” said Hardwick, who finished a career-best 17th in the world in 2013.
The Wrangler Champions Challenge events have definitely given Hardwick a jolt this year, as he also won the May 16 Redding (Calif.) WCC event with an 87.5-point ride on Growney Brothers Rodeo’s Raggidy Ann.
“When I get to come to (Wrangler Champions Challenge events) it’s great because it gives me another opportunity to keep up with the other guys and the Champions Challenges have been treating me really good this season because I’ve won a lot of money at them,” Hardwick said.
With all his success this season, Hardwick has some lofty expectations.
“Step 1 is getting to the NFR, but I have higher goals than just making it,” Hardwick said. “I’ve tried to rodeo a lot smarter this season, and my traveling partner (Orin Larsen) and I haven’t killed ourselves with a bunch of overnight drives and stuff like that. There are a lot of rodeos left and we’re going into this summer run feeling fresh and healthy and we should do really well.”
Other winners at the $123,600 rodeo were steer wrestler Seth Brockman (3.8 seconds), team ropers Clay Tryan and Jade Corkill (4.6 seconds), saddle bronc rider Heith DeMoss (88.5 points on Frontier Rodeo’s Maple Leaf), tie-down roper Hunter Herrin (7.8 seconds), barrel racer Lisa Lockhart (17.17 seconds) and bull rider Beau Hill (84 points on Bar T Rodeo’s Broken Arrow).
DeMoss’ score tied the WCC record set by Taos Muncy in Logandale, Nev., earlier this year.

2. Bach, Cooper Continue Family Tradition of Success
FORT SMITH, Ark. – Joel Bach celebrated his team roping win at the Old Fort Days Rodeo May 30 in a special way Saturday – he got married.
Bach, and new heeling partner Jim Ross Cooper, won the May 25-30 rodeo at Harper Stadium with a time of 9.2 seconds on two head. They competed earlier in the week, and hung on for the win.
That made Saturday even sweeter for Bach, who married Cassidy Cabot, 2012 Miss Rodeo Colorado, in Hamilton, Texas.
“Joel and I just became partners about three weeks ago, and I don’t think we’d ever roped together before that,” Cooper said. “We both needed a partner, and thought we’d give it a go. Team roping is a fickle beast, I guess, and chemistry doesn’t always work out, but so far, so good for us.”
It helps that Cooper and Bach have known each other since they were kids, and that their famous dads roped together at three National Finals Rodeos.
Cooper and his twin brother, Jake – they were the first identical twins to qualify for the WNFR in team roping – are the sons of Jimmie Cooper, who was inducted into the ProRodeo Hall of Fame in 2005. Bach is the son of four-time World Champion Team Roper Allen Bach.
“It’s kind of funny that my dad and Allen roped together, and my dad was the header,” Cooper said. “Allen taught me how to heel – through what he taught my dad. I used to rope at their house, and Allen was always a mentor for me.
“I’ve pretty much known Joel all my life. We rode dirt bikes together when I was about 14.”
Cooper, who celebrates his 31st birthday June 20, has qualified for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo five times (2007, 2011-14), while Bach, 25, is seeking his first trip to the Finals in Las Vegas.
Bach finished 21st in the 2014 header world standings, while Cooper – who roped with partner Brandon Beers – finished 10th.
Bach is 18th among headers in the June 1 Windham Weaponry High Performance PRCA World Standings. Cooper moved into the top 50 and currently sits 45th, but said it’s a long season and he hasn’t been to many rodeos. He still figures to reach his fifth consecutive WNFR.
“I’d say I’m really confident,” Cooper said. “You have to believe in yourself at this level. I’ve had a history of slow winters. I definitely have high hopes.”
The team roping partners have something else in common: both won team roping Rookie of the Year honors. Cooper was the top rookie heeler in 2004 and Bach was the premier rookie header in 2008.
Bach and Cooper finished three-tenths of a second ahead of the second-place team of JoJo LeMond and Dakota Kirchenschlager, who had a time of 9.5 seconds on two head. LeMond also won the steer roping, with a time of 21.6 seconds on two head.
Other winners at the $140,267 rodeo were all-around cowboy LeMond ($4,739 in tie-down roping, team roping and steer roping), bareback rider Clint Cannon (87 points on Pickett Rodeo’s Shady Nights), steer wrestler Josh Peek (8.6 seconds on two head), saddle bronc rider Cody DeMoss (85 points on J Bar J’s In The River), tie-down roper Marcos Costa (15.4 seconds on two head), barrel racer Michele McLeod (16.47 seconds), steer roper LeMond (21.6 seconds on two head) and bull rider Sage Kimzey (88 points on Silver Creek Rodeo’s Hell Pony).

3. Canada native Larsen wins in Grand Prairie
GRAND PRAIRIE, Alberta – Tyrel Larsen was nervous and excited as he drove toward western Alberta.
The Inglis, Manitoba, saddle bronc rider was traveling to Grand Prairie, where a date with Vold Rodeo’s Eclypce awaited May 27.
“I’ve been going to that rodeo for a few years now, and to know that I’d drawn that horse had me nervous when I was driving up there,” said Larsen, 25. “He’s a big, intimidating sucker, but he was worth the trip. I had seen him a lot the past three years, and was excited to get on him.”
Larsen’s maiden voyage on Eclypce was worth the wait. He scored 86.5 points – which stood up over the five-day rodeo, May 27-31 – to win the Grand Prairie Stompede, edging Cort Scheer by a half point.
Larsen said the horse’s size and unpredictability made him a bit anxious.
“He’s one of the biggest horses up here, and is a little unorthodox, and you never know what he’s going to do,” Larsen said. “I saw Taos Muncy win Wainwright (Alberta) on him (in 2013, with an 87-point ride). “For me, he blew up in one spot and was outstanding, and then he stayed good for the whole ride. Hopefully I’ll draw him again this summer.”
The win aboard Eclypce was Larsen’s first trip to the winner’s circle in the 2015 season. With the win, he moved to 21st in the June 1 Windham Weaponry High Performance PRCA World Standings.
While he’s hoping to do enough to make it to his first Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in December, Larsen is thrilled to simply be able to compete in rodeo after tearing the PCL ligament in his knee and missing most of the 2014 season. Pair that with finishing 16th in the 2013 standings and just missing the WNFR, and you get a motivated cowboy.
“Two years ago I had a really good season, but didn’t make the cut by one spot,” he said. “Last year, I blew my knee out and had to sit out. It wasn’t fun sitting around waiting and watching and not knowing when my knee was going to be good enough to ride again. It was really frustrating. But this year I came back with a clear mind, and I want to win more than ever. I’m just happy to be rodeoing again.”
Larsen says winning his first Grand Prairie Stompede title is special, and that he wants to collect a lot more wins at Canadian rodeos.
“It’s always fun to go down to the U.S. and represent Canada, but winning a big rodeo up here means that much more to me,” he said.
Other winners at the $113,459 rodeo were bareback rider Ty Taypotat (89 points on Vold Rodeo’s Mucho Dinero), steer wrestler Josh Harden (4.4 seconds), team ropers Dustin Bird and Chase Tryan (4.0 seconds), tie-down roper Matt Shiozawa (7.3 seconds), barrel racer Deb Guelly (15.296 seconds) and bull riders Kyle Lozier (86.5 points on Vold Rodeo’s Cooper’s Comet), and Jesse Torkelson (86.5 points on Vold Rodeo’s Stellar Revival).
• JoJo LeMond had quite the weekend with his steer roping/all-around parlay in Fort Smith and an equally profitable stopover at the Hugo (Okla.) PRCA Rodeo. He paired with Dakota Kirchenschlager in Hugo to win the team roping with a time of 3.6 seconds, which is the fastest of the 2015 season and equal to the 13th fastest all-time. He also tied for second in the steer roping in Hugo to win the all-around title. Between Fort Smith and Hugo, LeMond won $8,694. Nobody should be surprised by LeMond putting up the season’s fastest time; he is tied for third on the all-time list with a 3.4-second run at the 2009 Wrangler NFR, and tied for sixth all-time with a 3.5 at the 2009 Buc Days Rodeo in Corpus Christi, Texas – both with 2007 World Champion Randon Adams.
• Brazile Watch: Twenty-one time World Champion Trevor Brazile won checks in all three roping events over the weekend for total earnings of $8,267 to lift his lead over Tuf Cooper in the all-around world standings to $31,648. Brazile won the steer roping title in Hugo, while finishing fifth in the team roping with Patrick Smith. Brazile and Smith won a round at the Old Fort Days in Fort Smith, Ark., then earned a fifth-place check at the Spanish Fork (Utah) Wrangler Champions Challenge to go with Brazile’s fourth-place check in tie-down roping.
• Oklahoma tie-down roper Hunter Herrin moved to third in the Windham Weaponry High Performance PRCA World Standings with his win at the Wrangler Champions Challenge in Spanish Fork, Utah, and a tie for second place in Fort Smith, Ark. His total earnings of $9,005 allowed him to move up three spots from sixth last week.
• Cody DeMoss upped his lead in the saddle bronc riding world standings by parlaying his win in Fort Smith, Ark., with a tie for second place at the Licking (Mo.) PRCA Rodeo and a fifth-place check at the Wrangler Champions Challenge in Spanish Fork, Utah. Younger brother Heith DeMoss jumped seven spots from 16th to ninth by winning the WCC, the Maah Daah Hey Stampede in Grassy Butte, N.D., and the North Central Championship Rodeo in Medford, Wis. He also earned a fifth-place check at the Cherokee (Iowa) Chamber PRCA Rodeo, giving him total weekend earnings of $9,137.
• Tryan times: The team roping Tryan clan from Montana seemed to be everywhere, all at once, this weekend. World Champion Header Clay Tryan teamed with Jade Corkill to capture the Wrangler Champions Challenge in Spanish Fork, Utah – their record fourth WCC win this year – while brother Brady Tryan paired with B.J. Campbell to win the Central Point (Ore.) Wild Rogue Pro Rodeo and cousin Chase Tryan (the only heeler in the bunch) won the Grand Prairie (Alberta) Stompede with Dustin Bird and tied for second place at the Leduc (Alberta) Black Gold Rodeo.
• Canadian consistency: The 2013 World Champion Tie-down Roper, Shane Hanchey, has apparently found the key to picking up some momentum. All he has to do is leave the country. Hanchey won the Hand Hills Lake Stampede in Craigmyle, Alberta, and the Leduc (Alberta) Black Gold Rodeo over the weekend – each in a time of 7.7 seconds – to earn $3,831 and move from outside the top 50 to 34th in the world.

4. News & Notes from the rodeo trail
California Rodeo Salinas has announced its 2015 Hall of Fame class, with ProRodeo Hall of Famers John Hawkins and Harley May leading the way. Hawkins, the 1963 bareback riding world champion and a five-time National Finals Rodeo qualifier, also won a record five bareback riding titles in Salinas (1954, ’58, ’60, ’62 and ’68). May won steer wrestling gold buckles in 1952, 1956 and 1965, and was the president of the Rodeo Cowboys Association from 1957-59. His large Salinas resume includes winning the steer wrestling in 1965, 1970 and 1972, the saddle bronc riding in 1955-56, and capturing the all-around title in 1956 and 1965. Joining Hawkins and May are Harry Rose Sr. – an inductee in the track contestant category – and Salinas committee member Homer Hayward. The induction ceremony is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. July 16. For more information, visit www.carodeo.com/events/2015/hall-of-fame-induction-2015 … The San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo has elected a new president and vice president to the Executive Committee. After serving as vice president/secretary on the Executive Committee for six years, Cody Davenport has been elected president of the organization. “I am honored to be elected as president for such a respected organization,” Davenport said. “The San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo serves as a pillar for the community and the state of Texas by supporting youth through their educational and agricultural endeavors.” Additionally, Mark Colaw – who has served as assistant vice president since 2011 – moves into Davenport’s former position as vice president … David Wibirt, a pickup man from the First Frontier Circuit, was killed May 31 when a drunk driver crossed the median on Highway 59 near Birmingham, Ala., and struck him head on. He was 40. Wibirt, a native of Lake Luzerne, N.Y., was hauling a 40-foot trailer with bulls inside at the time of the accident, and his truck came to rest in an embankment where he was found unresponsive. The driver of the SUV was taken into custody at a local hospital … For the third straight year, the Pendleton (Ore.) Round-Up will not feature a flyover from the Air Force. The Air Force recently denied Pendleton’s request, in which the rodeo argued that it met the requirements of being both a national sporting event and a patriotic holiday – the two requirements the Air Force now uses for flyovers. Flyovers had previously occurred on championship Saturday in Pendleton for many years … The Kittitas County (Wash.) government and the Ellensburg Rodeo Board plan to study how to fix dilapidated seating in the rodeo arena at the Kittitas County Fairgrounds. County commissioners recently approved hiring an architectural and engineering consulting firm to plan how best to replace the seating and related structures, what it would cost and how to pay for it. The non-profit Ellensburg Rodeo Board and county government will contribute $50,000 each to pay for the study. The county owns and manages the arena … The inaugural Cowboys Kickin’ Cancer event was held over the weekend by the Santa Maria (Calif.) Elks Rodeo to give a group of women a behind-the-scenes tour of the rodeo. Professional cowboys provided lessons in roping, bucking and other rodeo clinics, with the proceeds going to Mission Hope Cancer Center. “You have world champions and hall of fame cowboys, and they’re all doing this to give back to Santa Maria,” said Darci Agin, a coordinator of Cowboys Kickin’ Cancer. Participants were treated to a whiskey and wine tasting as well as a Santa Maria-style barbecue. Cowboys were also auctioned off, with the highest bidder escorted into Saturday night’s show with the cowboy they won in the auction … Four-time Bareback Riding World Champion Bobby Mote and wife, Kate, have opened a coffee shop in Stephenville, Texas. The name? Rodeo Grounds. Located at 230 West College St., the shop serves espresso and coffee, bagels and pastries for breakfast, sandwiches for lunch, oatmeal brownies and smoothies. It even delivers to shops and offices on the downtown square. “We didn’t want a chain store,” Bobby said. “We wanted a friendly, positive place with good food and good people and that’s what people get when they come in here.” … The Kiwanis Club of Clarksville (Tenn.) Rodeo, which was completed May 30, will have a new name starting in 2016. The rodeo will be named after Bill Hoy, a longtime Kiwanis club member who helped to bring the rodeo to Clarksville in 1985. He is also a member of the University of Tennessee Martin Rodeo Hall of Fame.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK
“I used to go to the rodeo in Mesquite (Texas) with my grandparents. I remember telling my grandfather I wanted to be a bull rider, and he laughed at me. It’s something I had my eye on for a long time.”
– Bull rider Tanner Learmont, telling the Fort Smith (Ark.) Times Record about
how he got serious about riding bulls at age 14, after playing other sports early
in his life.
