Unmatched in Coronation, Alta., young gun Tanner Eno of Coronation, reached an important career milestone Wed. Aug. 18, sweeping the Touring Pro Division’s Royal Rumbull at the Coronation Rodeo Grounds to win his first-ever PBR event.

As the last man to leave the chutes in Round 1, the 22-year old embodied the old adage of saving the best for last, catapulting to the top of the event leaderboard courtesy of an 84.5-point ride on Thriller (Outlaw Buckers Rodeo Corp.).

Drawing Stay Away (Outlaw Buckers Rodeo Corp). as his final animal athlete opponent, Eno matched the bull jump-for-jump en route to an event-best, and career-high, 88.5-point score.

Eno’s hometown victory earned him 19 national points.

In the race for the 2021 PBR Canada Championship, and accompanying $50,000 bonus, Eno gained significant ground courtesy of the golden finish. He surged six positions in the national standings, rising from No. 13 to No. 7. He now trails No. 1 Jared Parsonage (Maple Creek, Saskatchewan) by 50 points.
