RODEO CORPUS CHRISTI WCRA TRIPLE CROWN OF RODEO TO AIR ON CBS TELEVISION NETWORK ON SATURDAY, JUNE 6

by Chris Dize

AUSTIN, TEXAS – The WCRA (World Champions Rodeo Alliance) announced today the 27-athlete  roster who will compete at the Rodeo Corpus Christi on the CBS Television Network on Saturday, June 6 at 12 PM, CT. Rodeo Corpus Christi is the first 2021 WCRA Major Rodeo and the first stop of the 2021 WCRA $1 Million Triple Crown of Rodeo.

In just three short years, the WCRA has awarded more than $9 million to rodeo athletes and has created one of the most monumental series ever in the history of rodeo- The $1 Million Triple Crown of Rodeo (TCR). The TCR is a $1 million annual bonus that will be paid out to any one or collection of rodeo athletes who win three consecutive WCRA majors in a row.

The TCR broadcast features 17-year-old tie-down roper, Riley Webb, who will go for his second consecutive TCR win when he ropes in the Rodeo Corpus Christi event. The youth rodeo star shined in August 2020 when he emerged victorious by defeating the 2020 world champion tie-down roper Shad Mayfield and 2013 World Champion Shane Hanchey by logging the only qualified run. If Riley wins in Corpus Christi and the July Days of ’47 Cowboy Games and Rodeo, Riley could become the youngest millionaire in the history of rodeo.

Breakaway Roper Madison Outhier will also face off against 20x World Champion and Breakaway roping legend Jackie Crawford in the Triple Crown at Rodeo Corpus Christi. Outhier comes off a win in November at the Women’s Rodeo World Championship (WRWC) where she won the coveted women’s title and a $60,000 payday. Crawford recently won the all-around title at the WRWC – while she was seven months pregnant.

Award-winning play-by-play announcer of the PBR, Craig Hummer, will be joined for analysis and insights throughout the event by the PBR legend and World Champion Cowboy Ty Murray, and commentary will come straight from the dirt with Kate Harrison bringing up-to-the-second updates from around the arena floor.
