Hometown favorite Connor Hamilton rode his way to the novice bareback riding bronze at the Stampede, after making an 80 point ride Saturday, to go along with the 75.5 from earlier in the Stampede. The former Junior A hockey player only took up rodeo recently, so it was quite an accomplishment to take the title at his first Stampede. Lane Cust of Ardmore claimed the novice saddle bronc honors in his third Stampede appearance, after making a stellar 82 point on his first horse, and then adding in a 77.5 in the Finals.
