World Champion Mike Lee Wins PBR BFTS Sioux Falls, SD
Mike Lee once again proves why he has been at the top of the PBR BFTS, year after year. He is one of only a few professional bull riders who has been consistent in a sport that is considered to be the "toughest sport on dirt", qualifying for the PBR BFTS Finals 13 years in a row!
This win moves Mike to 15th place in the world. With the majority of the season remaining, there is lots of opportunity to move up the ranks to number one!
Mike Lee earned 530 points towards the PBR world standings.
According to PBR.com, more than 18,000 fans attended the first ever Sioux Falls, SD Built Ford Tough Series (BFTS) event. It was a sell out crowd both nights of competition as they cheered on the bull riders and bulls.
Mike took two of his famous, crowd pleasing lap around the arena. When he makes the 8 second buzzer, he takes a victory lap. This started back in the fall of 2013. After a great ride, he was naturally excited and took a lap to celebrate with the crowd. The fans loved it and began to bring signs to the events that said things like, "Run that lap Mike", "Run Mike Run". Mike is known for his love of his fans. He is usually the last one at autograph signings, taking extra time to meet the people who cheer him.
Mike and the PBR head to Albuquerque, NM for the next BFTS event on Mar 20-22. Be sure to watch it on line at pbr.com/live or on CBS, CBS Sports Network.
