DALLAS — Chandler Bownds, a Lubbock cowboy, clinched the Elite Rodeo Athletes’ 2016 bull riding title after winning two rounds at the new pro rodeo association’s finals last weekend at the American Airlines Center.
Bownds claimed the title after winning the finals’ third round with a score of 86.5 on Sunday, Nov. 13. During the finals, Bownds won Round 1 after turning in an 85. He was bucked off during the second round.
But when the title was at stake in Round 3, Bownds paced the field with the 86.5 aboard a bovine named Spotted Canyon.
