Local bull rider Dakota Buttar took a ride Down Under to compete for Team Canada at the inaugural PBR Global Cup this past weekend in Sydney, Australia.

Buttar, who is from Kindersley, contributed to Canada's top 3 finish at the second leg of the competition.

During the first round, the 25-year-old was unable to qualify his ride for points, finishing with 0 points. After the first day, Canada was sitting in fourth place out of the five nations competing in the Global Cup.

But in round 2, Buttar responded with a huge performance.

On his second ride, Buttar elapsed the 8 second mark on Red Man to contribute 83.5 points to Team Canada's score. The world-ranked number 13 bull rider in the world finished tied for 21st in individual scores among all bull riders in the competition.

Despite Canada's best efforts, they were unable to take the top spot in the Australian leg of the competition. That honour belongs to the Brazilians, who will split $400,000 in winnings from the second leg.

Although, the Red and Whites were able to leapfrog over the Americans to finish in third place. Team Canada earned $65,000 collectively.
