Landon Catches Up With World Champion Bull Rider Tuff Hedeman

Richard Neale “Tuff” Hedeman is probably THE single most famous name in the sport of bull riding. The guy’s an AMERICAN HERO, in part, because of Stephen Baldwin’s depiction of him in the movie ‘8 Seconds’. Well, this great American hero will be in Lubbock this Saturday for Championship Bull Riding and I got the chance to talk to him this morning!

Here’s our interview:

Here’s the scene from ‘8 Seconds’ that brings a tear to my eye every time I see it:

“Is he hung up?!?” / “No. He’s ridin’ for Lane now.”

By the way, it was brought to my attention that Lubbock’s CBR show will have 6 World Champions competing in the event:

* Cody Teel – PRCA 2012 World Champ
* Wesley Silcox = PRCA 2007 World Champ
* Josh Barentine – CBR 2012 World Champ
* JW Harrris – 3 Time PRCA World Champ
* Bonner Bolton – 2007 CBR World Champ
* Clayton Foltyn – 2011 CBR World Champ

Individual rider information available at under riders
