Tampa Open

By JOHN C. COTEY

© St. Petersburg Times, published January 20, 2001


WHAT: Bud Light Cup bullriding championships.

WHEN: 8 tonight (doors open at 7).

WHERE: Ice Palace, Tampa.

TICKETS: $12-$102, call (813) 287-8844.

OUTLOOK: This is the fourth stop on a 29-stop tour. Nine-time world champion Ty Murray will highlight a field that also features Chris Shivers, Adriano Moraes and Paulo Crimber. Shivers is the Professional Bull Rider's defending world champion and eclipsed the career $1-million mark in Denver this month. He is the first athlete in PBR history to reach the $1-million milestone. He is currently 15th in the Bud Light Cup Points standings with four bulls ridden in seven attempts for 651.5 points. That's well behind leader Moraes, 9-for-9 on rides for 2,159.5 points. The Brazilian Moraes is the 1994 PBR champion and won the season-opening event in Bossier City, La. He is followed by countryman Crimber, probably the hottest rider on the tour. Crimber is 7-for-9 in rides and has 1,460 points. He has won the tour's past two events in Worcester, Mass., and Greensboro, N.C., giving him six wins in his past nine competitions. -- Compiled by JOHN C. COTEY.
