Brian & Todd Interview CBR World Champ Luke Kelley
The Cinch CBR Tour Finale is coming up Saturday night at the Budweiser Events Center in Loveland. 2010 World Champ Luke Kelley will be there. Brian and Todd interviewed Luke this morning. Here is that interview:
Luke Kelley rode more bulls than any other CBR rider in 2010, which helped him earn the 2010 CBR World Champion title. When he is in the chute, he is thinking, “Try hard and bear down.” This philosophy is probably why he was consistent the entire season and he really turned things on during the CBR fall run.
Kelley won the Horizon Series Finals in Bossier City in late August, which moved him into the top spot in the season standings, a spot he never lost. His event win in Lubbock, along with the $10,000 Mahindra Tractors Texas Swing bonus, locked things up heading into Kansas City for the Tour Finale.
Kelley‘s riding average was at 50 percent for the 2010 season. He racked up an incredible eleven Top 10 finishes, and he had five 90 point plus rides. There is no doubt he was the best rider in Championship Bull Riding for the 2010 season. After the $100,000 bonus for winning the 2010 CBR World title, Kelley finished the season with $159,478.
