2014 Timed Event Championship of the World

PAUL DAVID TIERNEY CONTINUES THE FAMILY TRADITION

Crowned the 2014 Timed Event Champion of the World

ROUND #5 SCORESHEET

Tierney Becomes 12th Timed Event Champ

Second-Generation Cowboy Joins Father, Other Legends as Winners of the ‘Ironman’

March 9, 2014 / Guthrie, Oklahoma – There’s a changing of the guard at the Timed Event Championship of the World.

Paul David Tierney, a 24-year-old cowboy from Oral, S.D., roped, tied and wrestled 25 animals in 332.3 seconds to win his first gold buckle, the fifth Timed Event title for his family. His father, Paul, earned four championships over nearly three decades of competition.

“My mom says I used to play around back there, so I guess I was pretty young the first time I came here,” said Tierney, who earned $60,000 over three days of competition – $50,000 for winning the average and another $10,000 for having the fastest go-round, a 49.0. “I had a ton of fun this weekend.”

The younger Tierney is still playing inside the Lazy E Arena, but he’s doing it in the arena instead of behind the scenes. It came down the final steer of the competition to decide the championship of the “Ironman of ProRodeo.” Tierney, who had led since the third round, relinquished his advantage in the 24th run of this rugged test when he posted an 18.9-second steer wrestling run, just moments after his nearest competitor, 22-year-old Clay Smith, had scored a 5.7.

Smith took a 1.8-second lead into steer roping. When Tierney finished in 20.2 seconds, the championship was well within reach for the youngest competitor in this year’s field. Smith, though, broke the barrier on a 13.6-second run; that 10-second penalty pushed his time to 23.6 and pushed him to second place, finishing in a cumulative time of 333.9 seconds.

“I love the Timed Event,” said Smith of Broken Bow, Okla. “I tried not to get in a hurry on anything, then I break the barrier. I should’ve been a little smarter than that.”

It overshadowed an amazing performance by the top young guns in the competition. With past champions K.C. Jones of Burlington, Wyo., and Daniel Green of Oakdale, Calif., among the top five, the top three cowboys all were relative newcomers to this unique contest: third-place finisher Russell Cardoza of Terrebonne, Ore., is just 27 years old.

“You just have to keep your head,” Tierney said. “Even when it gets a little tight, just go make your run and see what happens.”

That’s the key to the Timed Event. The winner each year typically is the contestant who made the fewest mistakes through the five rounds of competition. By finishing second, Smith pocketed $25,000. Cardoza added $24,000 - $15,000 for his third-place finish, $5,000 and $4,000 for finishing third and fourth in the fastest rounds.

Not only are Tierney, Smith and Cardoza the future of the competition, they bring an educated approach to their games.

“This might get some more young guys working on their stuff,” Tierney said of the strong run by the younger contestants. “I think it’s great for it.”

He becomes just the 12th man in the 30-year history of the Timed Event Championship to own the prestigious gold buckle. His name will be etched alongside his father and the other 10 winners in rodeo lore.

A portion of the proceeds from the 2014 Timed Event Championship will be donated to the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City. In addition, Priefert Ranch & Rodeo Equipment, The National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum and the Lazy E auctioned off a Customized Priefert Roping Chute that was used in this year's competition to the highest bidder of the weekend – the auction raised $2,350 that will be donated to the Rodeo Historical Society. The Lazy E is proud to support this institution for western preservation! 

And new for 2014, the Lazy E hosted the First Annual TEC Chuckwagon Cook-Off Competition that was won by Diamond W Ranch, from Ryan, Oklahoma!

‘Ironman’ is a True Test for Rodeo’s Best
The Most Versatile Cowboys in the Game are Part of Timed Event Championship Field

March 3, 2014 / Guthrie, Oklahoma – Why is the Timed Event Championship of the World called the “Ironman of ProRodeo?”
 
It’s the most challenging rodeo event in the world, where 20 invited cowboys pony up $3,000 each to test their versatile talents against one another and in each discipline: heading, heeling, tie-down roping, steer wrestling and steer roping.
 
“I’ve always loved roping calves and bulldogging and stuff,” said Russell Cardoza, a three-time heeling qualifier to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. “I’ve always wanted to win the Timed Event, so I finally got in it when I started rodeoing. I’ve kind of always liked all” the timed events.
 
The Timed Event also is the most rugged event in the game. Each contestant will make a run in each discipline, every performance. They compete over five go-rounds, which equates to 25 runs in just three days. Most of the cowboys in the mix focus on one particular discipline. Cardoza and Dustin Bird are heelers, while Spencer Mitchell is a header. Those guys are relative newcomers to the game, with Bird and Mitchell making their first appearances in the field last March.
 
“Actually a lot more fun than I thought it would be,” said Bird, who has qualified for the NFR each of the past two seasons. “I’m kind of getting to like it. I’ve just got to slow down a little bit and start doing things right. I get in a speed jam all the time.”
 
There are numerous others who have proven themselves among the greatest all-around cowboys in the game, from five-time Timed Event winner K.C. Jones, who qualified for the NFR in both team roping and tie-down roping, to three-time champion Daniel Green, who focused on heading during his 10 trips to Las Vegas. Josh Peek is an NFR all-around champion who has qualified in both steer wrestling and tie-down roping.
 
This field is loaded from top to bottom, including a couple of Linderman Award winners in Mike Outhier and Trell Etbauer, both of whom have proven themselves in timed events and riding bucking animals. They were quite handy during last year’s Timed Event, but it’s what fans have come to expect during the “Ironman.”
 
This year’s Timed Event Championship of the World will be showcased in an RFD-TV prime-time special Wednesday, March 12, just a few days after this year’s winner is crowned. It’s a grand celebration for the 30th anniversary of the “Ironman of ProRodeo,” the most unique and challenging rodeo competition in the game. Only 11 cowboys have won one of the most prestigious titles in rodeo.
 
“They all work at it, and they know to not beat themselves,” Mitchell said about past champs.
 
Families will enjoy all of the activities planned for the performances. Ticket prices are $45 for VIP, box seats $35, reserved bleachers $30 and general admission $25. Children 12 and under are free in general admission and VIP. Group and multiple performance discounts are also available. Tickets can be purchased at all Ticketmaster outlets, www.lazye.com, calling Ticketmaster (800) 745-3000 or by calling the Lazy E Arena directly at (800) 595-RIDE.
 
A portion of the proceeds from the 2014 Timed Event Championship will be donated to the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City. In addition, Priefert Ranch & Rodeo Equipment, The National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum and the Lazy E will again be auctioning off a Customized Priefert Roping Chute that will be used in this year's competition to the highest bidder of the weekend – all proceeds will be donated to the Rodeo Historical Society.

True Champions Chasing Timed Event Title
Biggest Names in Professional Rodeo Are Ready for This Year’s ‘Ironman’ Competition

January 21, 2014 / Guthrie, Oklahoma – Few men can lay claim to being the Timed Event Champion of the World. Fewer can say they’ve done it twice; fewer yet have won the prestigious title more than that.

In 2013, Californian Daniel Green placed his name on that hallowed list with his third gold buckle in the most unique event ever created in the world of rodeo. He will try to become just the fourth cowboy to have ever earned four Timed Event Championships when this year’s five-round fiesta takes place March 7-9 at the Lazy E Arena. 2014 will mark the event’s 30th Anniversary!

“It wasn’t perfect by any means,” Green said last March after roping and wrestling 25 head of livestock in 313.6 seconds to claim the title against an impressive field of ProRodeo’s brightest timed-event stars. “Many times it’s not, but that’s the Timed Event Championship. It’s adapt, adjust and overcome. It’s the guy that perseveres, and I just kept my mind set. These kids were coming in here and roping fast, and I just kept solid. I’ve been here enough to know.”

He has. In fact, he has been one of the top 20 cowboys in the world to be invited to this prestigious event for the better part of the last two decades. He won his first Timed Event Championship a dozen years ago, and then followed with his second in 2008. But Green is just one piece to the elite puzzle that makes up one of the most unique events in the history of the sport. You see, the championship features the best in the business competing in all five timed-event disciplines: heading, heeling, tie-down roping, steer roping and steer wrestling.

It takes talent to perform the tasks, but it takes grit and determination to succeed at this level. They compete in five go-rounds, with one round being made up of runs in each of the five disciplines. The top cowboys each year tend to be the top all-around cowboys in the game, from 25-time World Champion Trevor Brazile, who owns 19 PRCA Gold Buckles and six Timed Event titles, to five-time TEC winner K.C. Jones to numerous other rodeo champions.

They’ll join other Timed Event Champions like Kyle Lockett and Josh Peek as well as a host of regular qualifiers to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. Why?

The Timed Event Championship is one of the most prestigious events in Western sports, and it was developed 30 years ago as a way to decide the greatest all-around timed-event cowboy. Its list of champions is a who’s who of rodeo’s greatest stars. The tradition continues March 7-9 and the fabulous Lazy E Arena.

Families will enjoy all of the activities planned for the performances. Ticket prices are $45 for VIP, box seats $35, reserved bleachers $30 and general admission $25. Children 12 and under are free in general admission and VIP. Group and multiple performance discounts are also available.

In addition, Priefert Ranch & Rodeo Equipment, The National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum and the Lazy E will again be auctioning off a Customized Priefert Roping Chute that will be used in this year's competition to the highest bidder of the weekend - all proceeds will donated to the Rodeo Historical Society.
