- Rodeo Corpus Christi
- Women’s Rodeo World Championship
- Days of ’47 Cowboy Games and Rodeo
- Cowtown Christmas Championship Rodeo
Can I only win the TCR once per year?
Nope. This revolutionary annual incentive is not limited to just the WCRA 2021 schedule. Athletes can rack up wins on a rolling calendar basis (three consecutive wins can cross calendar years).
Is it really achievable?
During the 2018-19 WCRA series, multiple athletes were in a position to achieve the bonus which proves that it’s a possibility.
