Something went wrong.
A professional bull rider died Tuesday after sustaining injuries during a competition in Denver, according to the Professional Bull Riders association. Mason Lowe was 25.
Lowe was competing at the National Western Stock Show, the association’s CEO Sean Gleason said in a statement late Tuesday night. “The entire PBR and National Western sports family extends our heartfelt condolences and deepest sympathies to Mason’s wife Abbey and his family,” Gleason said.
Gleason didn’t provide additional details about Lowe’s injuries. Lowe was ranked 18th in the world and lived in Exeter, Missouri.
In 2015, Lowe told CBS affiliate KOLR-TV he started riding on the family farm. “My dad put me on some milk calves when I was 3, and ever since then I’ve been going to little rodeos and started from junior rodeos to little amateur bull ridings, and now I’m at the ‘Built Ford Tough’ level,” he told the station.
Lowe spoke to KOLR-TV as he was making his PBR debut, which he described as a dream come true. “Now that I’ve made it up here,” Lowe said, “I really feel like I accomplished something in my life.”
