Dunn returns better for run
Roy Dunn’s American tour didn’t go entirely to plan but he has returned to Proserpine better for the experience.
The bull rider contested the PBR’s Last Man Standing competition in Las Vegas and a touring pro event in Dakota but wasn’t able to get in the green.
Unfortunately for Dunn, both his rides ended up on the ‘Top Wrecks List’ – a weekly video that shows the biggest falls from the bull riding circuit. “I didn’t have the best trip but I’ve definitely got a lot to bounce back from,” he said.
“No matter how rank the comp is, you can always have bad days, regardless of how you’re feeling.”
Inside the ring, the twoweek trip didn’t produce the results but mixing with the sport’s best was something Dunn took as another positive from the experience. “It was good to run into a lot of old friends that I’ve known for years and good to meet some of the best in the world, especially for a younger fella in their first trip over there.”
Dunn is now back in Proserpine and resting up ahead of another gruelling stretch on the rodeo circuit.
He sustained a shoulder injury during his trip and is unsure whether it will require surgery. But all things going to plan, he will be back in the saddle on July 4 in Cairns for a cup series. Dunn then plans to tackle the PBR finals in Sydney and a Last Man Standing event in Brisbane, which will see the best bulls in the country pitted against the best riders.
