World champion bull rider to show at IAHR Expo

May 2, 2000
DALLAS, TX — After what might be the best year a professional bull rider has ever had, world champion Cody Hart will be appearing at the Little Giant Pump Co. booth (#1822) at the International Air Conditioning, Heating, Refrigerating (IAHR) Expo here Feb. 7-8, from 1 to 3 p.m.

Hart set several records in 1999. He became the first rider to win six tour events, dominating the sport. He was the youngest rider ever to win the Professional Bull Riders Championship, and he had the most 90-plus-point rides during the year — a total of 16.

Those 16 rides are what stand out most in his mind. “Ninety-point rides don’t come down the road every day; it’s one of the greatest feelings in the world,” Hart said.

The Professional Bull Riders Association holds bull riding events each week in different cities across America, culminating in the championships held each year in Las Vegas, NV.
