The seats were filled at Prospera Place on July 20 to watch some brave souls atop some big beasts.

The sold-out stadium played host to the latest edition of Professional Bull Rider (PBR)’s Canada Cup Series, with Sundrie, Alberta’s Wyatt Gleeson deemed the winner for the second event in a row.

The win vaulted Gleeson from 20th on the PBR Canada Championship race to 10th.

Last year’s winner in Kelowna, Brock Radford, came close to making it a repeat with a second-place finish. His 89-point score in the championship round was the highest in the entire competition, finishing just one point shy of Gleeson in cumulative score.
