Coming close to overtaking him was the 2012 Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association world champion Cody Teel. Teel, from College Station, Texas, scored 88.5 points on Hart Cattle Company’s Crystal Fox to tie for second place with Jake Lockwood, of Volberg, Mont., who rode on Monday.

Also coming in hot on Tuesday were Brazilian Marcelo Procopio Pereira and Javier Garcia who hales from Mexico. They tied for fourth place in the first round with 87.5-point scores.

There were a total of 27 riders to make qualified rides who will all advance to Wednesday night’s progressive round. To fill the 30 spots, three riders will qualify based on how close they made it to the required 8 seconds.

Competition Wednesday night starts at 7 p.m. with round two. Then the 15 best riders from the previous two rounds will compete in the finals following round two. Riders scores will be added together and at the conclusion of event, whoever has the highest accumulated score will be crowned the Denver champion.
