SAN ANGELO — The San Angelo Stock Show & Rodeo is adding Xtreme Bulls to its lineup this year.

So, what does that mean exactly?

The event — scheduled for 2 p.m. Feb. 2 — will feature the top 30 ranked bull riders on the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association tour.

The Top 10 contestants in San Angelo will progress to the final round.

This event expands on the traditional 12 performances each year by the San Angelo Rodeo. It is sponsored by Sonora Bank, which also sponsors the popular Mutton Bustin’ events.

These competitions showcase the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association’s top bull riders and some of the highest ranked bulls the world has to offer, according to a PRCA article.

In most Xtreme Bulls events, every contestant competes in the first round, with the top performers advancing to the final round.

The winner of the two-head average after the final round earns the title.

Essentially, this competition guarantees rodeo fans will see some of the top bull riders and bulls on the tour.
