Triplett wins in Big Sky ride

Print Article

Columbia Falls bull rider Matt Triplett made the most of his trip to his home state, winning Big Sky PBR, a Professional Bull Riders Velocity Tour event on July 29 at Sage Brush Field.

Triplett scored 85 points on Just Juan to move into the lead in the second round after pointing 86.5 on The Kraken on Friday.

The ride was enough to hold off the field, with the bulls keeping riders scoreless in the championship round, fielding Triplett 80 points in the world standings and a check for nearly $12,000.

Triplett has fared well during the PBR Built Ford Tough Series’ summer break, winning in Calgary in June and scoring two second-place finishes earlier this month.

He is ranked seventh in the world standings, 1,285 points behind world No. 1 Eduardo Aparecido. The BFTS begins the closing stretch of the season on Aug. 12-13 in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Triplett had earned just under $115,000 this season and has been on the PBR circuit for the past six years.
