CALGARY, Alberta, Canada — Ross Coleman rides when it counts most.
For the second time in his career, the Oregon bull-rider earned $100,000 for a single, eight-second bull ride.
On Sunday, Coleman went 92.5 points on the bull Shiver N Shake to win the $100,000 bonus round. He was the only bull rider to go the full eight seconds in the final round. The $100,000 ride is the greatest payout for a single bull ride in professional rodeo history.
Back in 2001, Coleman won the $100,000 for the Mossy Oak Shootout Bonus ride at a Professional Bull Riders event in Columbus, Ohio. That also remains as the highest paid single ride in PBR history.

Saddle bronc rider Dan Mortensen and barrel racer Terri Kaye Kirkland of Billings both competed in Sunday's semifinals but did not advance.
The Calgary Stampede paid out a total of $1.6 million dollars for its entire run. That included $1,000,800 paid out on Sunday alone. It is the richest regular-season event in rodeo history.
The money won does not count in the PRCA or Canadian pro standings
