CTEC Round 4: Tierney at the Top of Timed Event
4/14/2016

 

 Tierneys at the top at Timed Event 

March 5, 2016 / Guthrie, Oklahoma – Jess Tierney wants to win the CINCH Timed Event Championship in the worst way. 

It doesn’t look like it’s going to happen this year. 

“You want to win the average, and that’s why you come,” said Tierney, who has roped, tied and wrestled 20 head in a cumulative time of 333.8 seconds and is way off the pace of 219.4 set by his younger brother, average leader Paul David Tierney, the 2014 champion. 

“When things don’t go your way, you’ve got to block it out and perform that day. They give money away in the rounds, so hopefully that (time) wins something.” 

That approach worked well for Jess, who posted a 50.0-second round during the fourth performance Saturday night at the Lazy E Arena. If that time holds out through Sunday’s final go-round, Jess Tierney will pocket $10,000 for that feat. 

“You’ve got to look forward to each day and your chance for money that day,” he said. 

The Timed Event has become somewhat of a family tradition for the Tierneys. Their father, Paul, has earned four championships (1987, ’91, ’97 and ’00). In addition to his 2014 title, Paul David Tierney was the runner-up in 2013 and 2015. He’s in great position to add a sixth Timed Event title to the family’s trophy case. 

“It’s great to be here with my brother,” said Paul David Tierney, who has an 8.8-second lead over seven-time and reigning champion Trevor Brazile. “We’ve both got advice for each other, and he’s really good to have here.” 

They also have a strong affection for this championship, now in its 32nd year. 

“This event is something our family’s been a part of forever, and I hope we’re always part of it,” Jess Tierney said. “This is one event I look forward to all year, and we work on it all year long. Whether we come here and do good or not, we’re going to be working on it when we come home. 

“As this event has grown, it has created Timed Event cowboys. For 20 years, they have grown up getting ready for this event.” 

Paul David Tierney and Brazile seem to be in their own little battle for the coveted title – Brazile is 71 seconds faster than the third-place cowboy, Cody Doescher of Oklahoma City. It will all be decided during the final performance, set for 1 p.m. Sunday. 

That’s just the way it ought to be.

CTEC Round 3: Tierney Jumps Past Brazile into Lead
4/14/2016

 

 March 5, 2016 / Guthrie, Oklahoma – If anybody in this year’s CINCH Timed Event Championship field has a bigger smile than Dustin Bird, it might be Paul David Tierney. 

After three rounds of a back-and-forth battle with seven-time champion Trevor Brazile, Tierney heads into Saturday night’s fourth round with a 1.6-second lead. He also owns the fastest round time, capitalizing on his 50.8-second third go-round. 

“I’m really enjoying it,” Tierney said of his race with Brazile. “He keeps pushing you and doesn’t let up; that’s the best part. It drives you to just keep doing what you do, and it’s back-and-forth with him.” 

It has been fun. Tierney has roped, tied and wrestled 15 animals in a cumulative time of 165.0 seconds. He and Brazile are nearly 50 seconds better than the field, led by the No. 3 man in Bird, who posted a 51.1 Saturday afternoon to make a run with two go-rounds remaining in the “Ironman of ProRodeo.” 

“I just want to slow down and get them down no matter what,” Bird said, pointing out that he has yet to take a 60-second marking, the equivalent to a no-time in this unique championship. “I’ve been long in a few events, and that’s what’s kept me down a little. I just keep going and never get done. 

“You back in (the timed-event box), see the start and go out and make the best run you can. At the end of the game, you’re better off than you thought.” 

It takes a considerably different mindset than the typical rodeo cowboy deals with in most competitions. Take the National Finals Rodeo, where speed is a necessity. 

“At the NFR … you go fast every time and throw caution to the wind,” said Bird, now in his fifth year competing in the Timed Event. “Here it’s about getting everything down and not make any mistakes. The less mistakes you make, the better off you’ll be.” 

Tierney knows that well. Not only did he watch his father, Paul, win four Timed Event crowns, he earned this championship two years ago. In addition, he was the runner-up in 2013 and 2015. He knows that being consistent is vital in this grueling challenge. 

“It’s the most important thing,” Tierney said. “You can’t change it up and try to go faster; you just try to be smooth and do your job. 

“You take care of your stuff and don’t worry about what’s going on around you. I’m just taking care of my business.” 

It’s a winning formula. 

RESULTS 

Average Leaders: 1. Paul David Tierney, 165.0 seconds; 2. Trevor Brazile, 166.6; 3. Dustin Bird, 214.4; 4. Kyle Lockett, 221.5; 5. Rhen Richard, 222.5; 6. Cody Doescher, 230.8; 7. Josh Peek, 231.5; 8. Cash Myers, 243.1. Fastest Round Leaders: 1. Paul David Tierney, 50.8 seconds; 2. (tie) Trevor Brazile and Dustin Bird, 51.1; 4. Kyle Locket, 51.6; 5. Landon McClaugherty, 52.2; 6. Cody Doescher, 52.8.


CTEC Round 2: Brazile Blazes to the CTEC Lead
4/14/2016

 

 March 4, 2016 / Guthrie, Oklahoma – The keys to Trevor Brazile’s great success in the rodeo arena lies in his amazing work ethic and the talent of his equine partners. 

He showed it Friday at the Lazy E Arena during the first two go-rounds of the CINCH Timed Event Championship, but that’s nothing new for the Decatur, Texas, cowboy. No other cowboy in the event’s 31-year history has won this championship more than Brazile, who owns seven titles. 

He roped, tied and wrestled 10 head of livestock in 108.3 seconds and holds a 5.9-second lead over the No. 2 man, Paul David Tierney of Oral, S.D., heading into the third go-round, which begins at noon Saturday. 

“The second round went good,” said Brazile, who has earned more than $750,000 in his Timed Event career. “I think it was pretty right on to the first round, other than my bulldogging; I didn’t do very good the first time.” 

His 51.1-second score on Friday night pushed him to the fastest round time, just a half second ahead of Kyle Lockett of Visalia, Calif. In the Timed Event, the best cumulative time through all 25 runs earns the biggest paycheck, $100,000. The top eight aggregate scores are paid according to place, but the six fastest rounds also earn money – $10,000 for the fastest round. 

Still there are plenty of hiccups that come the way of the “Ironman of ProRodeo.” Brazile, one of the most veteran cowboys in the field, understands how to overcome the grueling challenges that face everyone over the three-day championship. 

“You just make a plan and execute,” said Brazile, a 23-time world champion in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association. “It’s about executing. Once you know what (animal) you’ve got, you just perform.” 

That’s easier said than done, but the Texan is the only cowboy competing at the Lazy E Arena this weekend that has qualified for the National Finals in four of the five timed-event disciplines. The only event in which he doesn’t regularly compete is steer wrestling, but he typically manages his runs fairly well. 

“One thing my dad’s always told me here, and I’ve watched it happen, is the ones you take for granted are the ones that bite you,” said Brazile, who owns gold buckles in steer roping (6), tie-down roping (3) and heading (1). “It’s happened to me in the past. I just try not to take any one event for granted, whether it’s my strong suit or not.” 

It shows, year in and year out.

CTEC Round 1: Tierney Back on Top
4/14/2016

The first round of the CINCH Timed Event Championship is always a mixture of first-run jitters and gaining confidence.Paul David Tierney of Oral, S.D., understands that as well as anybody. Not only is he a veteran in the “Ironman of ProRodeo,” he is the 2014 champion; he’s also a two-time runner-up, having finished as the reserve champ in 2013 and 2015.

“I’m not even concerned about the first round right now,” said Tierney, the son of four-time CTEC champion Paul Tierney. “I just want to keep being smooth and wait until the end to see how it all plays out. “Making sure you get the steers and calves down is the key in the first couple rounds, that and to see what the steers and calves are doing. You want to be sure you get out on the barrier and make a smooth run, then work from there on them.”

Tierney posted a solid 55.9-second opening go-round, highlighted by a 7.9-second heading run, an 8.2 in heeling and a 5.0 in steer wrestling. He holds a 1.3-second lead over the No. 2 man, Trevor Brazile, the reigning champion from Decatur, Texas, that owns a record seven Timed Event titles. Just behind him is 2010 titlist Josh Peek of Pueblo, Colo. Two-time winner Kyle Lockett of Visalia, Calif., sits fourth, while three-time titlist Daniel Green of Oakdale, Calif., is seventh; that makes all five former champions that are in the field among the top eight after the first round.

It takes consistent all-around cowboys to excel in this unique event in which all 20 competitors will make runs in all five timed-event disciplines: heading, heeling, tie-down roping, steer wrestling and steer roping. “I like doing all the events, but I’m not too competitive in the bulldogging or steer roping right now,” Tierney said. “This is a fun opportunity for me to get to do them all.”

It’s also a grueling test of 25 runs over just three days. The biggest incentive is the $100,000 payout to the cowboy that finishes the five-round affair with the fastest cumulative time. It’s a challenge for the cowboys and the animals they use.

That’s why it’s the “Ironman.”

CTEC Round 5: Tierney Doubles up at Timed Event
4/14/2016

 

 March 6, 2016 / Guthrie, Oklahoma – At just 26 years of age, Paul David Tierney has found his calling at the CINCH Timed Event Championship. 

In just three days inside the Lazy E Arena, the Oral, S.D., cowboy made 25 runs in a record cumulative time of 267.9 seconds to win his second Timed Event title in three years. In all, he pocketed $113,000, nearly doubling his earnings from the previous four years in this unique competition. 

“That’s a lot of money, life-changing money,” said Tierney, who also won the title in 2014 and became just the second cowboy in the event’s 32-year history to earn the $100,000 prize for first place overall. “That feels pretty dang good right now.” 

In addition to his record run over the five-round, three-day affair, Tierney finished twice among the top six in the fastest-rounds portion of the competition. He added $10,000 by finishing second (48.5 seconds) and fourth (50.8), then pocketed another $3,000 for the record run. 

“Winning this feels great,” he said. “Just being able to compete in this is an honor, and to be able to win it is even better.” 

This title marks the sixth Timed Event gold buckle in the Tierney family. His father, Paul, was a four-time winner, earning his championships in 1987, ’91, 97 and 2000. The Tierney patriarch earned his first title before his youngest son was born, but the legacy has definitely been passed on. 

“It all just lined up this year,” Paul David Tierney said. 

In fact, it was a two-man race for most of the weekend between him and seven-time champion Trevor Brazile of Decatur, Texas. Tierney held just a 6.8-second lead heading into Sunday’s final go-round, but he expanded that lead after the second event, tie-down roping. After Brazile was saddled 

with a long time, the event was Tierney’s to lose. Brazile finished as the reserve champion and has pushed his Timed Event earnings to $776,500, the most ever. 

By finished second and fourth in the fastest rounds, Tierney matched round earnings with Trell Etbauer, who won the fastest-rounds competition with a 44.7-second run worth $10,000. It marked the first solid day for the Goodwell, Okla., cowboy since the Timed Event began Friday afternoon. 

“I drew some really good cattle today, so I knew I had a chance to set up a good round,” Etbauer said. “I’ve been sick all week, and I finally woke up this morning feeling a lot better. I guess I could think better, too. 

“This is an event I wait for every year.” 

So do all the other elite all-around timed-event cowboys in the game.
