Bull­rider ready for Buckin mad­ness

Fraser Coast Chronicle - - NEWS -

TRAVIS Franklin is out to con­tinue his run of suc­cess at Mon­ster Buckin Mad­ness tonight.

The Tiaro bull-rider will be one of up to 30 rid­ers ready to take on the re­gion’s best bulls at the Stafford Park, Her­vey Bay, event.

For Mr Franklin, it’s an op­por­tu­nity to grow the sport along­side a field of top-qual­ity bull-rid­ers.

“It’s re­ally good for the sport and spec­ta­tors as it will bring the best rid­ers from around,” he said. “I ride about once a week­end or fort­night, and we prac­tice if there’s no com­pe­ti­tion.”

The 38-year-old, who started bull-rid­ing when he was 15, said his plan of at­tack was sim­ple.

“The game plan is to have a bunch of fun, I treat ev­ery day as it comes,” he said.

The event starts at 4.30pm.
