CODY, Wyo., July 3,  2024 — With just one more performance left in the 105th Cody Stampede Rodeo, the competition is getting tighter.

That was evident at the third performance of the rodeo, Wednesday night at Stampede Park. With less than ideal weather conditions, it was cold, wet and a little rainy, very few contestants were able to move into the standings and put themselves in position to get a paycheck.

Bronc Marriott from Grantsville, Utah, still leads the bareback riding with a 91.5-point ride. Nick Pelke from Mondovi, Wisconsin, moved into second place on Wednesday with an 86-point effort on C5 Rodeo’s Hangover Face. Prior to Cody’s rodeo, Pelke was 16th in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association world standings. The man ahead of him in 15th is none other than Marriott. Both of these men could really use big paychecks here to keep them inside the top 15 and give them an opportunity to qualify to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. It would be a first for each.

Dakota Eldridge, the number two man in the world steer wrestling standings had some success that required him to get down in the mud. Eldridge, who grew up in Elko, Nevada, stopped the clock in 4.8 seconds and he is now tied for third place.

The crowd here always gets loud for Wyoming residents. When it’s a Cody resident, the support is unwavering. That was evident during the team roping when Sid Sporer, who has always called Cody home, and Tee McLeod backed into the roping box.

With Sporer doing the heeling and McLeod, from Waldeck, Saskatchewan, heading, they stopped the clock in 4.7 seconds. They were the first team of the night to go penalty free and are now tied for fifth place. While Sporer won’t win his hometown rodeo, he stands to get a nice check here.

It was another night where bulls reigned supreme as only one rider was successful. Tyler Bingham scored 76.5 points on Frontier Rodeo’s Rebel Time. That puts the three-time NFR qualifier in fifth place. The last time he competed for a gold buckle was in 2020. The Howell, Utah, resident is 18th in the world standings and every dollar he earns gets him closer to a trip to Las Vegas next December. 

The fourth performance of the Cody Stampede Rodeo starts at 5 p.m. at Stampede Park on Thursday. Gates open at 3  p.m. with live entertainment and food options on the grounds. Fans are encouraged to come early to avoid being caught in traffic.
