Biker Bull Riding on the Southern Ute Indian Reservation.

Ignacio, Colorado. 
In the annual festivities that surround Ignacio’s Bike Week motorcycle rally, those with the courage join the bull in the pin for eight seconds of glory. Biker Bull riding as it is dubbed, takes non professional bull riders and gives them a taste of pain, or victory depending on the temperament of the animal, and the skill of the rider. 

In a few hours time I will be once again photographing the action…Nikon in hand!
