Stop three of the TSR Showdown series was the largest of the season! We had 45 riders and only three hours to get everything accomplished before dark. The operators and staff did a great job running efficiently and the event went off without a hitch. I am not sure if the best part of the night was the fact that we had so many riders or the Pro Men riders and their tribute to MJ, who as you all know passed away earlier in the day. The MJ — that is a relatively new trick — is when the rider presses up on their toes from a board slide that simulates Michael Jackson’s famous pose. No one does it quite like Shawn Watson but it was pretty entertaining watching all 12 pro riders attempt it, most for the first time. After two weeks off for the WWA Nationals and to help judge stop 2, Tom Fooshee has reclaimed his place in the number 1 spot. Due to the lack of rain in South Central Texas, TSR has officially changed the July boat events to cable events because the boat lake continues to be closed. The series will now be eight weeks with overall winners being decided from their best six finishes. For more information check out texasskiranch.com/showdowns.
