Since the announcement of the legendary Kid Rock’s Rock N Rodeo, debuting May, 17, 2024, athletes all over have been looking for their way in. Six teams will compete in a bracket-style competition at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, for a $1 million purse, and five of those teams were drafted by the team coaches.

The sixth team, however, is the only route for non-drafted athletes, and WCRA Rodeo Corpus Christi is their way in to Kid Rock’s Rock N Rodeo.

The Free Riders

WCRA announced in Dec. 2023 they were joining forces with the PBR for the revolutionary new rodeo. Their team the “Free Riders,” led by Bobby Mote and Linsay Rosser-Sumpter, offers a chance for athletes to compete if they weren’t picked in the draft.

The Free Riders team will be made up of the first and second-place athletes from Rodeo Corpus Christi. Contestants need to declare eligibility through the WCRA’s state of the art Virtual Rodeo Qualifier (VRQ) and earn a leaderboard position in the top 20 to qualify for Rodeo Corpus Christi on May 8-11, 2024. The athletes that finish first and second in Corpus will make up the Free Riders.

Nominations for Rodeo Corpus Christi are open now and will close on April 7, at 11:59 p.m.
