(Loveland, CO) – Ring in the New Year 8 seconds at a time with the fourteenth annual First National Bank New Year’s Eve Extreme Rodeo Challenge, presented by Pedersen Toyota, at the Budweiser Events Center at The Ranch on Dec. 31 at 7:30 p.m. The event returns with rodeo favorites such as saddle bronc riding, bareback riding, bull riding, and bullfighting; don’t forget about the ever-popular mutton-bustin’. 

 

The First National Bank New Year’s Eve Extreme Rodeo Challenge is a Northern Colorado staple when it comes to ringing in the New Year. This event is enjoyed by everyone from the first timer to the experienced rodeo fan; be sure to bring out the whole family! Freestyle bullfighting, the craziest event in rodeo, returns once again in 2019. This event features the toughest bulls pitted against rodeo athletes who are trying to outmaneuver these 1,300-pound power-house animals. The wrecks are abundant, and the excitement is nonstop in this battle that truly pits man against beast.

 

The action doesn’t stop with freestyle bullfighting; bull riding is back and sure to keep you on the edge of your seat with bull riders matching their skills against top caliber bucking stock from all over the country. Nationally acclaimed bull riders will team up with a top freestyle bullfighter forming a team that will compete for the Extreme Rodeo Challenge Championship. The teams feature two bull riders, one bareback rider, one saddle bronc rider and a freestyle bullfighter that compete throughout the night to be crowned the 2019 New Year’s Eve Extreme Rodeo Challenge Champions.

 

After the First National Bank New Year’s Eve Extreme Rodeo Challenge, the excitement will continue at the First National Bank Exhibition Hall at The Ranch for the NoCo New Year’s Bash hosted by BIG 97.9. Watch the countdown to the new year with live entertainment beginning at 9 p.m. that runs until 1 a.m. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door.
