LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Reigning champion bull rider Justin McBride says he plans to retire after the PBR World Finals next month in Las Vegas.
The 29-year-old cowboy told The Associated Press on Tuesday that he has been thinking about retiring since last year but wanted to make sure he wouldn't miss the competition. McBride says he'll still give his best effort at his final
rodeo, the World Finals. He says if he felt like he wasn't go all out he wouldn't compete at all.
The cowboy from Elk City, Okla., was sidelined for more than six months with surgery on his left shoulder after winning the title last year. He also won in 2005.
