Bobby Mote wins in Bremerton, injured in San Juan Capistrano

BREMERTON, WA – How quickly things can turn.

On the night of Aug. 26, four-time World Champion Bareback Rider Bobby Mote rode Calgary Stampede’s Rapper Margie for 90 points – his highest score of 2011 – to win the Aug. 24-27 Kitsap County Fair & Stampede and extend his great late-season run.

The following afternoon, Mote was slammed against the chutes by Flying 5 Rodeo Company’s Diaper Duty at the Rancho Mission Viejo Rodeo in San Juan Capistrano, CA, breaking ribs and lacerating his pancreas.



Not knowing the extent of his injury at the time, Mote elected to ride and scored 76 points. He then flew on to Seattle, WA, intending to compete at the North Idaho Fair & Rodeo in Coeur D’ Alene on Sunday.

He was in such pain when the plane landed, however, that traveling partners Ryan Gray and Jason Havens convinced him to seek immediate medical attention.



Mote was diagnosed at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle and underwent surgery on the morning of Aug. 28 to repair his pancreas.

He is expected to be hospitalized for at least five days and Dr. Tandy Freeman of the Justin Sportsmedicine team has told Mote that he is looking at a three-month recovery period, with the possibility of his returning in time for the Dec. 1-10 Wrangler NFR.

Mote, aiming to tie Joe Alexander and Bruce Ford with a record fifth gold buckle, had been on a tear recently, winning six bareback riding titles in the last month with Bremerton the most impressive of the lot.

He had drawn the 6-year-old mare Rapper Margie, sired by the legendary Grated Coconut, and both judges awarded Mote 23 points out of a possible 25.

In addition to the win in Thunderbird Stadium, Mote also earned checks at PRCA rodeos this weekend in Lethbridge, Alberta, and Kennewick, WA, before his ill-fated trip to California. He is fourth in the world with $73,837, enough to assure him a spot in the Wrangler NFR, if he is healed enough to be able to compete.

The other champions at the $140,106 rodeo in Bremerton were steer wrestler Dru Melvin (7.9 seconds on two head), team ropers Ty Blasingame and York Gill (9.5 seconds on two head), saddle bronc rider Sam Spreadborough (88 points), tie-down ropers Jake Hannum and Tuf Cooper (17.0 seconds each on two head), bull rider Shawn Proctor (90 points) and barrel racers Cassie Moseley and Sydni Blanchard (17.28 seconds each).
