Greg Fuller was having a great year. After just missing the NFR last year he started the year very determined and focused. He had earned over $5,000 in just four events and had ridden for 95 points in Guthrie. His fortunes took a turn for the worse though when he tore his ACL during an Xtreme bulls qualifying event. He was given the option to continue to ride but since surgery was inevitable and he would be riding for less then 100% he has decided to have the surgery done later this month. He will likely be out for the rest of the season. We will all certainly miss seeing him in the arena and wish him a quick and complete recovery.
"All I have to do is really learn how to dance with a bull. You just have to remember that he's definitely leading and you have to follow. You can't get behind at all. If you keep in time with him, you're all right. I just wish it wasn't such a hard dance to learn."- Fred Boettcher
