First, some really great news! Wade Sundell is BACK in action. Last year Wade was severely injured in the bronc riding and his liver was lacerated. He spent weeks in the hospital and recovering, being told he would likely never be able to compete again. On July 28 he won the first round at the big Sidney, Iowa PRCA rodeo with a 84.5 score on Fettig ProRodeo’s You Be Rockin. His form was good and it was a well deserved win. He’s a tough guy and I hope he continues to ride well and stay healthy. Answered prayers!
