This is not a rodeo. They don't rope calves, and they don't chase barrels. This is bull riding only, and the first rule is just to stay alive. Voted “The Most Dangerous Sporting Event in America” by Sports Writers of America, witness professional bull riders climb onto the backs of 1,500-pound animals, nod that they are ready, and try to hang on when the chute opens and the bulls go off like bombs beneath them.
