    Canadian Finals Rodeo 47: The Definition Of Competitive Balance

    Oct 28, 2021

    To say it’s a “wide open” field when it comes to the competition at this year’s Canadian Finals Rodeo would be an understatement. With only three returning event champions from 2019, just fourteen current and former Canadian title holders on the roster and less than half of the CFR46 competitors back this year—predicting potential champions in 2021 could be a dart throw.

    We asked Edgar Durazo from Moctezuma, Mexico to imagine what it would be like to win a Canadian title several times, but until it happened, he couldn't fully imagine how he would feel about winning the highest title in a country that he had called home for the past six years. He talked about the people that had welcomed him with open arms, the friendships he gained on the rodeo trail, the bulls he would have to conquer, but when the title was finally his, there was one thing he had to say about how it felt:

    The 2019 Canadian Finals Rodeo was not going the way it was supposed to for Shane Hanchey. The reigning, and three-time Canadian champion was struggling through his week in Red Deer, Alberta, and it didn't look like he would be taking home a fourth title this year.

    He was the 2016 world champion, multi-time Calgary Stampede champion, he's won Houston, and just about any large rodeo you can think of, but he's been after the Canadian title since he was a kid and has finally checked his home country's highest honor off of his bucket list. Not only did Zeke Thurston win the 2019 Canadian Saddle Bronc Riding title, but he made sure of it by running away with the competition.

    They said before their last run at Westerner Park in Red Deer, Alberta that they might go for the arena record and - while they didn't break that particular record - they did break another at the 2019 Canadian Finals Rodeo: the single-season earnings record. The previous record was held by Levi Simpson and Jeremy Buhler who earned $59,006 between the regular-season and the finals in 2017, but Sherwood and Koch raised that bar substantially with their $74,616.07 and $76,728.86 respectively.
