Details

Outlaw, a Brahma-longhorn bull, is a legend at the Calgary Stampede. Fifty-seven cowboys in a row tried riding him for eight seconds, and 57 cowboys failed. Staying on Outlaw was such a daunting task that rodeo organizers made him a “bounty bull,” meaning the first rider to hold on would get a special payout. As more riders failed, the payout grew. By the time 21-year-old Justin Volz successfully rode the bull at the Stampede in 2003, the bounty was up to $50,000.
