Cinch World's Toughest Rodeo
Cinch World's Toughest Rodeo
Cinch World's Toughest Rodeo™ rides back into Saint Paul for two thrilling shows Friday - Saturday, Jan. 5 and 6, 2018, at Xcel Energy Center.
The popular "Party on the Dirt," featuring Dylan Scott, will take place following Saturday night's rodeo action. Following the success of his debut single "Makin' This Boy Go Crazy," "Crazy Over Me" debuted at No. 14 on the Billboard Sales Chart. In July, the up-and-coming country star's hit "My Girl" reached No. 1 on Billboard's Country Airplay Chart and has also been certified Platinum by the RIAA.
K102 contest winners get access to the dirt dance, but all rodeo fans are welcome to stay and enjoy the live entertainment.
Cinch World's Toughest Rodeo showcases champion cowboys from around the United States competing in bareback riding, saddle bronc riding or bull riding, while the ladies will be vying for the championship title in barrel racing. The top two in each event will return for a second time to go head-to-head to determine the night's champion.
Before the rodeo each night beginning at 6 p.m., fans are invited to come early and partake in the interactive activities for all ages including pony rides, all access meet-and-greets with cowboys and entertainers, hopping in the clown's barrel for photos, sitting on Midnight the bull in the bucking chutes, or getting up close and personal with the Cinch World's Toughest Rodeo animal superstars.
Cinch World's Toughest Rodeo will feature the return of Bull Jumper Emmanuel Lataste. The Frenchman will show off his unbelievable athletic talent and nerves of steel as he takes extreme sport to another level. Bull Jumping, a sport directly linked to South Western French tradition called "Course Landaise," will include more than 15 jumps and maneuvers over a four-year-old charging Mexican fighting bull.
