DELANEYS Creek rider Rachelle Carlo has the chance to push for the early lead in Australian Professional Rodeo Association breakaway roping standings at eight rodeos in Queensland in the next three months.

Carlo was the best performed of the locals at the National Finals Rodeo at the Queensland State Equestrian Centre at Caboolture earlier this month.

She was second in round 2 of the breakaway roping in a time of 2.75 seconds and was second in the aggregate with a time of 22.85 seconds for four head of cattle.

The first rodeo of the weekend is on Friday night at Bundaberg and many of the stars of the sport from Central Queensland are set to travel south in quest of early season points. The are 100 entries at Bundaberg including 16 in the open bull ride.

 Bull riders will then have a second chance this weekend when a bull ride is held at Maleny on Saturday

The 2014 pro tour ended at Easter just before the finals with the top 15 in each event competing at Caboolture.

The APRA has introduced a new system for determining placings at the National Finals Rodeo next year with riders allocated some carryover points for the finals from the performance on the pro tour during the season.

Previous finals were sudden death with each of the 15 qualifiers starting on zero points at the finals. At the end of the 2015 season, riders will take some points into the finals but the points system is designed to give the 15th placed qualifier a chance to win the title with an outstanding finals series.

After this weekend, rodeo action will head north to Bowen River on June 7-8 and then APRA competitors have a break to July 19 when the Northern Run starts at Taroom.

 

APRA Rodeo Program: May 24 Nebo; May 30 Bundaberg; May 31 Maleny Bull Ride; June 7-8 Bowen River; July 19 Taroom; July 26 Longreach; July 27 Richmond; August 1-3 Cloncurry; August 8-10 Mt Isa; August 15 Daly Waters (NT); August 16 Katherine (NT); August 23 Darwin (NT).
