Sports Challenge: Bull Riding

- By: Marcus Officer

In round two of our rodeo challenge we picked up the intensity. Tom Thompson and I would each have one chance to ride high voltage, whoever could stay on the longest would be this week's winner.

This week we would test our strength and balance on a mechanical bull named High Voltage.

Because I was technically the visitor I jumped on first. After establishing my grip we were ready to go. Up and down, back and forth, I was able to keep my balance and composure.

High Voltage was easy on me to start however the energy picked up after the first 10 seconds. High Voltage really picked it up in the last 10 seconds and I was finally sent to the ground.

My time: 38 seconds.

After the event Tom revealed that this stranger from the street just happened to be a saddle bronc rider who would be competing on Friday.

Now it was Tom's turn however the savvy vet pulled a fast one and substituted someone else to take his turn. So this spectator turned competitor jumped on and gave high voltage a go.

42 seconds later he was bucked off.
