In this picture, 26-year-old NFR rookie Dusty Hausauer is thrown from Sock Dancer in the saddle-bronc competition where he finished sixth in the round and after the rest of the weekend's events were over, the rookie finished ninth overall. Justin McDaniel, Luke Branquinho, Matt Sherwood, Randon Adams, Cody Wright, Stran Smith, Lindsay Sears and J.W. Harris all earned the title of World Champion in their respective events as SI photographer Darren Carroll got down near the bucking broncos for the best shots.
