Crown Royal Rider Chandler Bownds Wins ERA 2016 Bull Riding World Championship

We congratulate 26-year-old Bull Rider Chandler Bownds, from Lubbock, TX, who recently clinched the Elite Rodeo Athletes 2016 Bull Riding World Championship after winning two rounds at the newly established professional rodeo association’s finals in Dallas. We’re honored to call Chandler a teammate – he’s one of five professional Crown Royal Riders who represent the sport’s finest athletes. Amazed by the outpouring of support after being crowned a World Champion, Chandler is humbled by how far he’s come in his professional bull riding career, saying “Thanks for all the support from my family, friends, and sponsors!” While he enjoys the lifestyle of a professional rodeo cowboy, recently-engaged Chandler also dabbles in extreme sports including wakeboarding and snow skiing.
