The Cinch TEC will take place Thursday, February 29th, Friday, March 1st and Saturday, March 2nd. As always, this event will feature the top all-around cowboys in the business as they compete for a total purse of $200,000! In addition to the main event, we will again be offering the JR. Ironman Championship included with your CTEC ticket featuring rodeo’s ten hottest young guns—competing in three-rounds and four events: Heading, Heeling, Tie-Down Roping and Steer Wrestling.
We are keeping the same Thursday – Saturday schedule as 2023, so please make note of the change in the evening performance times to 7:00pm and the Jr. Ironman to 5:00pm daily. As with last year, entry for the Jr. Ironman will now be included with the evening performance ticket.
The Cinch Timed Event Championship of the World debuted in 1985. In the world of rodeo at that time, cowboys were beginning to specialize in one or two events. EK Gaylord II, builder and owner of the Lazy E, and a few close cowboy friends had the idea to develop an event that showcased the all-around cowboy, the cowboy who could excel in multiple events, and thus the “Ironman of Pro Rodeo” was born.
Pro rodeo’s top 20 timed event cowboys in the world are invited and required to compete in all five timed events—heading, tie-down, heeling, steer wrestling, and steer roping—over five rounds & three grueling days of competition. While there have been a few minor changes over the years, the event has essentially remained the same. With a total purse of $200,000, the winner walks away with a $100,000 paycheck and bragging rights. The Timed Event Champion of the World remains an elusive title that only a select few can claim!
“This is by far the biggest win of my career,” beamed a breathless 32-year-old Doescher at event’s end. “I’m not rodeoing that hard anymore, so to even be here is a blessing. To come out on top is unbelievable.”

“After all I’ve been through to be here makes this win even sweeter,” said Rogers, who’s 35 now and lives in Round Rock, Arizona. “The Timed Event is one of the greatest events ever. You don’t get to compete against the best 20 all-around cowboys in the world in five different events anywhere else in the world.”
