A while ago, I wrote an article spotlighting PBR’s Chase Outlaw after his win at Last Cowboy Standing in Cheyenne exactly 12-months after his devastating injury. That win landed him 1st place in the world and the title of “Toughest Athlete in Sports” by USA Today.
Well, the tough S.O.B proved that that title was rightfully earned this weekend after taking home the victory in Fairfax, Virginia— his fourth total victory this year.
If you ever catch Outlaw out a bar, make sure to tell the cowboy his money is no good there and he never pays for another beer again.
Here is his ride on Hurricane Tested this weekend:
While he may not be sitting in the pole-position anymore, the win this weekend places him at an impressive 3rd place and within striking distance of the #2 and #1 riders Jess Lockwood and Jose Vitor Leme.
.@outlawchase came into Fairfax, did his job and is one step closer to reclaiming his No. 1 spot. Can the World No. 3 cut into Jose Vitor Leme’s lead with a win tonight in Fairfax? Tune in on @cbssportsnetat 6pm ET. pic.twitter.com/aBl53pgktY— PBR (@PBR) September 22, 2019
Since I’m no professional journalist for the sport, I can honestly say who my fandom is with this season. If Outlaw takes Vegas in November and ESPN does not do a 30 for 30 on this man, I will personally chain myself to the front door of their HQ until my demands are met.
His comeback story and actions of incredible resiliency is something that makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up. Here is the full story:
