Parsonage wins season-launch PBR Canada event

Posted on June 18, 2021 by Maple Creek


As action for the season-launch PBR (Professional Bull Riders) Canada event in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan wound to a close Saturday evening, home province sensation Jared Parsonage (Maple Creek, Saskatchewan) delivered a perfect 2-for-2 performance at the Byrne Ranch to win the Tanner Byrne Invitational, presented by Lipsett Cartage, and surge to the No. 1 position in the national standings.
Seeking his first PBR Canada Championship in 2021, Parsonage began the evening with a bang, delivering the Round 1-winning score when he covered Turn Back Time (Flying Four Bucking Bulls) for 88.5 points.
As the last man to erupt from the chutes at the Prince Albert event, Parsonage clinched the victory when he covered 2019 PBR Canada Bull of the Finals Finning Lil Shorty (Flying Four Bucking Bulls) for 88 points.
A rematch, the qualified ride avenged a buckoff from 2019 when Finning Lil Shorty brought Parsonage down in 6.52 seconds in Grande Prairie, Alberta.
Parsonage left the Byrne Ranch having earned 27 national and 15 world points, catapulted to the top of national standings.
Two-time PBR Canada Champion Zane Lambert (Ponoka, Alberta) was second, netting 17 national and 8 world points.

Going a flawless 2-for-2, Lambert began his campaign for a historic third national title when he delivered the sixth-best score of Round 1, an 83.5-point ride aboard Claude (Skori Bucking Bulls).
The veteran, however, then recorded a trip that won’t soon be forgotten when he dominated the championship round with a monstrous 91-point score on reigning PBR Canada Bull of the Year Catch My Drift (Two Bit Bucking Bulls/K Rose Ranch).
The score was the first 90-point ride on Canadian soil thus far in 2021.
The 8-second effort was earned in a rubber-match between the two powerful athletes. While Lambert covered Catch My Drift in their first meeting, marked 87 points in Stavely, Alberta, in September 2018, he was bucked off in their subsequent showdown, dispatched in 3.31 seconds in Calgary in March 2019.
Double-entered, Lambert also tied for 10th compliments of an 83.5-point score on Broken Trigger (Skori Bucking Bulls) during the continuation of Round 1 on Saturday evening.
Lambert is now ranked No. 2 in the early race for the 2021 PBR Canada Championship, a mere 10 points behind No. 1 Parsonage.
