LIMA - Lima's first ride on a bull was successful enough for a second one, organizers announced Friday.
The Bud Light PBR Lima Invitation in June was successful enough to spark a return to the Allen County Fairgrounds' Schmidthorst Pavilion on June 6 and 7, 2014.
"The riders, stock contractors, sponsors and fans all had a great time in Lima, and it was apparent that the PBR would want to include the Lima Invitational on the 2014 tour calendar," Justin Cornwell, Lima Bull Riding LLC partner and PBR stock contractor, said in a press release. "We're expecting 2014 to bring even more top level talent to Lima and build on the world-class professional bull riding competition here."
The winner in Lima last month, Cody Nance, won three times since then, and now he's No. 2 in the PBR world rankings.
