The most dangerous sport in the world – bull riding – makes its return to Cedar Run Horse Park along with Canada’s greatest superbike racer Jordan Szoke as GREATRODEO.COM presents the 2014 Stampede Days August 23rd and 24th in support of Camp Maple Leaf.
This wild weekend of mammals and machines combines two of the world’s most exciting spectator sports: bull riding and extreme motocross stunt riding. Witness the heart-pumping spectacle of competitive bull riding as top hands from Sao Paulo Brazil, the United States, Mexico and Canada strap onto 2,000 pounds of raging bull in a timed test of sheer survival. All riders will be competing for the coveted 15 qualifying spots in the International Professional Rodeo Finals slated for Oklahoma City next January and thousands of dollars in prize money.
“We are truly excited about our 2014 season,” says BJ Prince, General Director of The Rawhide Rodeo Company. “And based on the advance enthusiasm and our star studded roster, spectators are in for a very competitive and exciting event.”
2014 Stampede Days also hosts Canadian motorcycling legend Jordan Szoke, winner of 19 national titles in multiple disciplines. Jordan leads his Freestyle Extreme Team in a thrilling display of trials skills and jaw-dropping stunt riding that will defy both physics and gravity. For an added injection of adrenaline 2014 Stampede Days will also feature the high-flying aerial acrobatics from 8 Six Six Industry’s team of freestyle motocross jumpers lead by London’s Billy VanVugt.
RAWHIDE RODEO COMPANY has been producing rodeos and rodeo related events for over twenty years. It has grown from a small professional rodeo company to one of the largest and most accredited in North America, now producing over 120 rodeo performances a year in over 15 states and provinces.
CAMP MAPLE LEAF is more than a summer camp. Located on a 104 acre island in the Kawarthas, it is a place rich in adventure, fun and restorative powers. Camp Maple Leaf is a registered charity with programming that promotes the development of self-confidence, self-esteem, problem solving skills, leadership and conflict resolution. Since its establishment in 1955 by the Canadian Council of War Veterans, over 30,000 underprivileged children, and children of military families, have enjoyed the transformative experience that only summer camp and Camp Maple Leaf can provide.
