Canadian Contenders: Who Still Has A Shot At The 2019 Title?

Five rounds, thousands of dollars, and it all comes down to one more day. Red Deer, Alberta has been treated to phenomenal rodeo action for the past five days and all that's left to do is hand out the Canadian titles after the top competitors in Canada compete just one more time.

But who still has a chance to earn one of the coveted Canadian titles?

We've been checking the numbers and are bringing you the UNOFFICIAL list of all of the competitors that still have a mathematical chance to come out on top when the dust settles on Sunday afternoon. 

We started by looking at the payout for the last round and the aggregate and saw that there was a maximum of $26,235.00 ($10,530 for the round and $15,795 for first in the aggregate) left to be won by any single contestant if they were able to win both the last round and the aggregate.




We know that any of these competitors can win on any given day, so we accounted for anyone that was less than $10,530.00 away from the title, if anyone was more than a round win away from No. 1, we had a looked at where they were sitting in the aggregate and considered their "best-case scenario" to move up if the stars aligned and everything went their way.

Some races were tight, and others - when looking at all of the competitors with a mathematical chance - are much more open than you'd expect.
