Dana Lee brings us up to date on the past few months and 2016 season!

Tonight is the official kick off of the 2016 season and it couldn’t come at a better time! I

think Mike was going stir crazy these past 2 weeks not getting on bulls. While some take the

break as a time to heal up that’s never Mike’s plan. He loves riding and tries to go to as many

events as he can.

The weekend after finals was his start of the 2016 season and he’s attended every event

he could since then. I’m happy and thankful to say that Mike has stayed healthy through the

break and done an amazing job at the events he’s attended!

Watching him ride during this break I saw a resurgence in his love of riding and he

looked so happy being on top of those bulls. I’m not sure that I can put into words the joy you

feel watching someone you love do something they love to do and being truly at peace with it.  I

am so thankful that God has put this into his life and that I am lucky enough to get to watch him

experience it!

I am so excited for this next season and what it has in store for our family.  As some of

you know Peter has officially turned 2 years old which I still can’t believe myself! Where has the

time gone?! So this next year me and Peter won’t be able to travel with Mike to every event like

we have for the past 2 years. While I’m excited for this next chapter in our lives Peter and I both

will miss being at every event cheering Mike on in person. But that doesn’t mean that we’ll cheer

any less louder from home!

Praying for all the riders, bull fighters and livestock to have a safe and healthy 2016

Dana Lee Reflects on 2015

Looking back on the 2015 season all I can say is that it was amazing! 

Peter and I got to travel all over the country (and sometimes out of it) to cheer Mike on while he got on the rankest bulls in the world. He got to be the last man to ride Asteroid. Had injuries, struggles and triumphs and victories. We met new friends that are now considered family. And spent almost two straight months on the road this summer traveling watching Mike do what he loves. 

While the finals didn't go as well as Mike had wanted God answered my prayers for his safety. By the end of the 2014 finals Mike was beat up, torn up, knocked out and stitched up.  But by the grace of God he made it through the 2015 finals without major injury or pain. After watching so many of our friends be hurt this finals and suffer not only the physical pain but mental pain of not knowing when and if they could ride again I feel like our family won the finals! 

The first event of the 2016 season starts this weekend Oct 30th and I'm so excited for what this season has in store for Mike! True to form he's going to go to as many events as he can and climb on as many bulls as they'll let him! And true to mine I'll be cheering the loudest whether I'm at the arena or watching from home on the couch!
