Confidence is no issue for bull rider

RODEO: A year of injury has not taken an confidence away from Roma bull rider Cameron Dixon, who says he is aiming for victory at the national rodeo finals in Dalby.

Dixon is one of the riders in the mix to place at the finals for the National Rodeo Council Association (NRCA), and the former champion of the Queensland Rodeo Association (QRA) says he is excited at the prospect.

"The finals are what you have worked all year for, so there are definitely some nerves,” Dixon said.

"I am pretty confident this year. I am going there to win it.”

Tickets are on sale for the NRCA's biggest event of the year, held at the Dalby Showgrounds on November 3-5.

Another contender for this year's open bull riding title is Roma-based rider AJ Riley.

Riley, who won this years QRA open bull riding title, says he is wanting to hone his skills ahead of the

event.

"The bulls (in Dalby) are probably a little better than what I have ridden this

year, so I am hoping to get on a few bulls prior to the weekend and fix up a

few techniques of mine,”

he said.

"It should be a good weekend and I am looking forward to it.”
