Chris heads to Bob Feist Invitational Team Roping
This week Chris heads to Reno Nevada for the 10-day Bob Feist Invitational team roping, which is in its 38th year. The BFI’s $500,000 purse makes it the richest one-day Open roping in the world. Also, it’s held annually on a Monday in late June during the 10-day Reno (Nevada) Rodeo, so cowboys are in town to kick off their summer tour. But the BFI mystique isn’t just about the Benjamins. There’s the horsemanship factor – each hard-running steer gets an 18-foot head start. The mental factor – each cowboy gets just one partner and can’t make a mistake for six rounds. And the difficulty getting in – only 100 elite teams are allowed to enter. Chris is looking forward competing with his partner, world champion team roper Bobby Harris.
