Bull riders on Suicidal mission at Brothers

ONE of the greatest athletes in Australian sport is set to grace the hallowed turf at Brothers Leagues Club this evening.

Superstar bucking bull Suicidal will strut his stuff at round one of the National Rodeo Association's (NRA) National Finals Rodeo (NFR).

Suicidal remains unridden after more than two years in open bull riding competitions.

More than 150 riders, including some of the best in the world, have tried their luck but none have lasted the required eight seconds.

Suicidal and 11 Hall Rodeo bulls will be pitted against the top 12 bull riders in the NRA standings at the rodeo, which is in its 17th year in Ipswich.

The rodeo will again be supporting the Kim Walters Choices Program via the Think Pink fund-raising campaign.

The nation's best rodeo competitors will wear pink and spectators are encouraged to do the same.

Coominya cowgirl Cheyenne Whitwell is flying the flag for the local competitors.

After winning her first Open Barrel Race title two years ago as a 14-year-old, she comes into the NFR in the top position and is looking to make it three in a row.

She is also the defending all round champion cowgirl but trails Toogoolawah cowgirl Kim Clark by a slender margin.

The rodeo action begins at 6pm.
