Valdiviezo, who is originally from the Baja California town of La Mision and now lives in San Antonio, Texas, complemented his 76-point ride in the second go-round with an 82-point score in the short go.

“I feel glad to be here,” Valdiviezo said.

Menifee cowboy Tommy Denny won the first go-round with a score of 76 points on Making Moves, who was provided by Porterville stock contractor Evan Matthews.

Menifee cowboy Tommy Denny won the first go-round with a score of 76 points on Making Moves, who was provided by Porterville stock contractor Evan Matthews.

“He was good,” Denny. “He was a little bit hot, a little bit wound up, and he bucked really good. He came out and turned back into my hand. I got some timing, finished him off.”

Denny was bucked off both on his first July 14 bull and during the short go. South Carolina cowboy Rowdy Rice won the second go-round when judges Mike Johnson and Wally Terry gave him 78 points for his ride on an unnamed bull.

“It was a pretty good bull from Dale Misner,” said Rice. “He spun to the right, so that was into my hand.”

Valdiviezo had the final qualified ride of the full go-round and his 76 points tied Denny for second in the average.

“He’s tough, heavy, and I feel a little hard to ride because he doesn’t buck too much,” Valdiviezo said of his bull.

The six riders with the highest scores competed in the short go for the winner-take-all $3,000.

Valdiviezo was the fourth rider in the short go and the only one to ride his bull.

“Pretty good bull for the short round,” Valdiviezo said. “Right into my hand.”

The Optimist Club of Lakeside has held the Optimist Bulls Only Rodeo every year since 1999.

In 2005 the event became the first bulls-only rodeo to be sanctioned by the International Pro Rodeo Association.
