Calgary - The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth is back, and with it, the incredible energy and excitement of the World’s Largest Outdoor Rodeo! The Calgary Stampede is excited to announce the full lineup of the world’s best Rodeo Athletes who have been invited to compete over 10 action packed days for a shot at becoming 2022 Calgary Stampede Champions. All six of the 2021 Calgary Stampede Champions will be back to defend their titles, and will be joined by rodeo’s premier athletes from the Canadian Professional Rodeo Association, Women’s Professional Rodeo Association and Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association.

“This year’s lineup of competitors is sensational. We are so proud that the Calgary Stampede continues to attract the best-of-the-best when it comes to rodeo competitors,” says Kristina Barnes, the Stampede’s Manager of Agriculture & Western Events. “We know they will lay it all on the line for an incredible 10 days of action in GMC Stadium.”

From the youthful swagger of 18-year-old rookie Bareback sensation Rocker Steiner, to ultra-cool Bull Riding legend JB Mauney – the field is packed with the biggest names in the sport of rodeo. The incredible competitors of Barrel Racing are represented by a strong field of riders including superstar Emily Beisel, 2021 Stampede Champion Bertina Olafson, and Nancy Leischner, the winner of the Stampede’s Barrel Racing Qualifier. Current number one in the world in Tie Down Roping, John Douch, will have to be fast to match three-time Calgary Stampede Champion Cory Solomon’s skills in the arena. A stacked field of Steer Wrestlers includes 2021 World Champ Tyler Waguespack and Alberta’s own Cody Cassidy, a Stampede veteran. And speaking of homegrown talent – the lineup in Saddle Bronc showcases the best young riders in Canada, including brothers Dawson and Logan Hay, Ben Anderson, Kole Ashbacher, Kolby Wanchuk and three-time Stampede Champion Zeke Thurston.    

“There’s nothing quite like a hot July day, a cold drink in your hand and the chance to watch the best competitors in the sport of rodeo going head to head for a shot at the Stampede Championship,” said Barnes. “We invite you to join us to experience all of the action in person, or tune in to Sportsnet and the Cowboy Channel to watch from the comfort of your own home.”
