Tyner wins CBR event at K-State

By The Mercury

Dylan Tyner saved his best for last on Friday night.

The Fort Morgan, Colo., native scored 88 points on the bull Unfinished Business in the final, edging some of the best riders in the CBR Horizon Series at the K-State Championship Bull Ride at Weber Arena.

Tyner rode for 81.5 points in the first round — joining eight others who made qualified rides to get into the finals. He edged Brazilian Alexandro Cordozo, who posted an 87.5 on the bull Weird Al in the final and ranks seventh in the CBR Horizon Series standings.

Tyner was also better than Kyle Sherwood and Ty Ridings, two riders who didn’t score in the final and rank eighth and 12th in the CBR standings, respectively.

Mark Johnson of Manhattan scored 83.5 points in the final on the bull Rena’s Pet after scoring 84 points in the opening round. Jared Long, who ranks 20th in the Horizon Series, rode Bulls Eye in the final for an 81.5, but reached the final with an 85.

Dane Candiotto, from Independence, La., tied Ridings for the best ride in the opening round with an 85.5, but failed to score in the final.

Also qualifying for the finals, but failing to score included Jeremy Hanson and Austin Martin.

The K-State Rodeo Club will host its annual rodeo Feb. 22-24 at Weber Arena with a 7:30 p.m. Friday performance, two performances on Saturday at 1 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., and then wrapping up that Sunday at 1 p.m.
