Mauney Will Not Compete In STL Valentine’s Day Weekend
If you’re like me, you’ve been patiently (more like IMPATIENTLY) waiting since October of last year for this coming weekend. I bought my tickets to the PBR St. Louis Invitational way back in October so I get the seats I wanted and get some GREAT pictures.
Unfortunately, while I’m also eager to see ALL of the riders in this amazing sport, I was especially looking forward to watching J.B. Mauney ride this coming weekend at Scottrade. But if you watched the LiftMaster Chute Out in Anaheim, California this past weekend, you understand why he won’t be competing in St. Louis.
Dr. Tandy Freeman reported that Mauney sprained his left riding hand and wrist in Anaheim (Round 2), so Mauney is said to be taking a week off from riding in order to allow the hand to heal. Let’s all hope that happens sooner rather than later. I’m disappointed, but I completely understand and wish him a quick recovery as I’m sure his legion of fans will agree.
