For the Record: RAM Mountain States Circuit Finals



The RAM Mountain States Circuit Finals Rodeo kicks off Thursday, Oct. 26, in Loveland, Colo., and runs through Saturday, Oct. 28. Every year, many circuit cowboys compete for a shot at the RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo, but only the best make repeat champion-level performances. 

Surprisingly, in more than 30 years of the rodeo’s existence, no bull riders nor any steer ropers have ever won the RAM Mountain States Circuit Finals Rodeo average title two years in a row.

Cowboys who win the circuit finals rodeo’s average might not always be the same ones who win the circuit year-end title, so there are two separate lists of records for average title winners and circuit year-end winners.
