Athletes and Animal Athletes Shine at Opening Night of ERA Rodeo World Championship

The million dollar inaugural Elite Rodeo Athletes (ERA) World Championship – America’s new professional rodeo tour, featuring 87 of the sport’s top athletes and, collectively, 135 World Championships – opened three nights of action on the American Airlines Center floor on Friday. Top bull riders, steer wrestlers, team ropers, saddle and bareback bronc riders, barrel racers and tie-down ropers all descended upon the Big D this weekend to decide – on two million pounds of dirt packed on top of the Mavs’ & Stars’ hallowed playing surfaces – the season-long, 11 tour stops of rodeo across the western U.S. in one action-packed weekend of competition. “A heck of night of competition – with two more to go,” said Bobby Mote, Interim President of ERA and Bareback Riding Athlete. “Dallas has such a storied history of rodeo and the ERA’s extremely pleased to bring the World Championship back to town.” Fans poured into the American Airlines Center some 90 minutes prior to the 7 p.m. start of the competition, mingling with the athletes on the rodeo floor, snapping selfies and scoring autographs – a fan-friendly event exclusive to ERA rodeo.
