California title tops big week for Elshere
Aug. 26, 2013 - ProRodeo.com

At $220,005 the Mission Rancho Viejo Rodeo is the richest two-day event sanctioned by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association and Cole Elshere’s shared win in the saddle bronc riding there helped make him the week’s richest PRCA cowboy. Period. End of story.

By the time he arrived in San Juan Capistrano, Calif., on Aug. 25, Elshere had already had a very good week with two wins and a second-place finish in PRCA rodeos. He transformed it from good to great with an 84-point ride on Flying U Rodeo’s Long Walk Home that allowed him to tie Sterling Crawley for the championship.

“I knew that if I did good at San Juan, I could end up doubling what I had already won for the week,” Elshere said, “but I knew what I was up against. I drew the same horse at San Juan that I had there a year ago and he bucked me off (then). I was glad to get him again because I knew if did good on him, I knew I’d have a chance to score well.”

In the end, Elshere did a bit better than double his week’s earnings. The $7,074 he received for his tie with Crawley at the RMV Riding Park brought his total for the week to $13,663, jumping him from 12th to seventh in the world standings and locking up his second consecutive berth in the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo.

“Yeah, I think I should be OK now,” Elshere said. “That was a good four days. It sure helped. All I’m trying to do now is keep winning and keep trying to climb the ladder.”

Actually, it was a good and very busy week that would see him travel by ground and air a total of 4,638 miles to compete in five rodeos in four states and one Canadian province while also finding time for ranch work and even a bit of time with friends. read more >>
