Bull rider Clayton Savage ignores injuries, earns checks in Steamboat Springs, Wolf Point

Wyoming bull rider Clayton Savage has been kind of a staple on the Justin Sportsmedicine injury report just lately. A sprained right ankle in Reno, NV, was followed by a contusion to the left foot in Greeley, CO, and a contusion to the right shoulder in Prescott, AZ, all of which was meant to keep him out of action for a while.

But you know how that goes. Savage started the week in 13th place in the world standings and, being reluctant to give up ground, got back out on the road this week to win the bull riding at the Steamboat Springs (CO) ProRodeo Series.

His 82-point ride on Southwick’s Rocky Mountain Rodeo Company’s Spotted Wolf was three points better than the rest of the field and paid him $747. He also earned $913 for a third-place finish at the Wolf Point (MT) Wild Horse Stampede.

“I sat out the Fourth of July week (missing five rodeos and the Cody Xtreme Bulls) and used the time wisely to heal up,” Savage said. “I went swimming a lot, got in the hot tub, and followed the plan the Justin Sportsmedicine team set for me. I went down to Greeley (CO) for a checkup with them.

“The shoulder still hurts, but I was feeling well enough to ride (this weekend). It was kind of upsetting to miss so many of the rodeos over the Fourth, but after getting back on the road and performing pretty well, I’m feeling good about things. I just have to keep it going.”
