Dunn re­turns bet­ter for run

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

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.
