Elite rodeo athletes committed to 2016 ERA Premier Tour despite ruling
“While we disagree with the court’s preliminary injunction ruling, the ERA will continue to present the best collection of professional rodeo athletes during its inaugural 2016 season– starting with the first ERA rodeo next month in Redmond, Oegon,” said Tony Garritano, CEO and President of the ERA. “ERA athletes have responded to the recent court ruling with an overwhelming commitment to the ERA and its Premier Tour.”
Roster members have guaranteed that they will appear at each and every event, making the ERA Premier Tour their top priority.
Four-time World Champion Bareback Rider, Kaycee Feild, expressed his level of dedication by saying, “I’m all in! I’m proud of being part of the ERA and holding stock. I know the future is bright for all of rodeo with the ERA. I stand for what’s right and that’s doing what I can to make the ERA the best!”
When asked what fans can expect at the upcoming tour rodeos, Tommy Joe Lucia, COO of the ERA said, “The ERA product has not changed, we will still be the best rodeo product in the industry showcasing the top rodeo athletes in the world.”
The commitment to the ERA by its athletes goes even deeper, with over 85% of ERA Athletes deciding that they will retain their ownership in the ERA and not attend PRCA rodeos in 2016. In addition, the entire ERA roster will continue to participate at all 9 events in the 2016 ERA Premier Tour.
With the overwhelming support of the ERA Shareholders, rodeo fans will only be able to see these great athletes on the ERA tour.
In response to the ERA athletes’ solidarity, Garritano said, “Their commitment to the ERA is tremendous, they believe in the vision and goals of the ERA to make the sport of rodeo better for future generations.”
