Championship Bull Riding (CBR) will be returning to Cheyenne Frontier Days to crown the 2017 World Champion. This is the culmination of the year-long 2017 Road to Cheyenne Tour where bull riders have accumulated points towards the world title. Up for grabs is one of the most prestigious titles in bull riding and a $100,000 bonus.
The 2017 CBR World Championship is also the final event for the Million Dollar Bull Team Challenge where bulls are competing for prize money. Last year’s bull team winners, B & M Bucking Bulls took home a check for $92,000.
At the end of Tuesday night’s competition nearly one-half million dollars will be paid to bull riders and bull team owners making it one of the richest competitions in bull riding. The entire 2017 Road to Cheyenne Tour is televised in prime time for 26 weeks on FOX Sports Networks, with the 2017 CBR World Championship featured as the final two telecasts in the popular series.
