In front of an electric crowd at the Abbotsford Centre, Maple Creek’s Jared Parsonage went a perfect 2-for-2 to capture his first ever victory on the PBR (Professional Bull Riders) Canada Monster Energy Tour, presented locally by Mac’s/Circle K.
The 25-year-old surged to the event lead after earning the top marks in Round 1, making the 8 aboard Muddy Water (X6 Ranch Bucking Cattle) for 85.5 points. A re-ride draw, the match-up was one that was familiar for Parsonage, helping him to the event win at his most recent PBR event on the Canadian Touring Pro Division in Magrath, Alberta.
As the final man to explode from the chutes, he recorded the high marked ride of the event in the championship round, bringing the crowd to its feet with an 87.5-point ride on Ripped at the Seams (Vold Rodeo).
