PINE Grove cow­boy Terry Evi­son was the form rider early in the Christ­mas Run in the Aus­tralian Pro­fes­sional Rodeo As­so­ci­a­tion.

The first rodeo on the Run was Boxing Day at Myrtle­ford where Evi­son won the rope and tie and joined with Aaron Book­luck to win the team rop­ing.

There are six rodeos in the APRA on the Christ­mas Run, which fin­ishes with rodeos at Fin­ley on Jan­uary 6 and Beech­worth the next day.

There are 249 nom­i­na­tions for Beech­worth at Mad­man’s Gully, May­day Hills, Al­bert Road. The rodeo starts at 5pm and the most nom­i­na­tions are 51 for the team rop­ing.

Evi­son won the rope and tie at Myrtle­ford in a time of four sec­onds from Townsville (Qld) rider Camp­bell Hod­son on 4.2.

He com­bined with Book­luck to win the team rop­ing in 6.7 sec­onds, .7 ahead of run­ners-up Cooper Can­nell and David She­gog.

Evi­son will be one of the favourites for Beech­worth.

Ry­ley Gibb (Char­ters Tow­ers) won the steer wrestling at Myrtle­ford in a time of 3.9 sec­onds from Lock­ing­ton’s Lee Kim­ber in 4.2.

Many rid­ers from across Aus­tralia are com­pet­ing in all six Christ­mas Run rodeos. Most of the rid­ers nom­i­nated for Beech­worth on Jan­uary 7 will com­pete at Fin­ley in NSW the day be­fore.
