2022 NFR Round 4: Tyler Wade and Trey Yates


The notes on Tyler Wade and Trey Yates’ fourth-round steer weren’t great.

“This is a stronger steer that Chad Masters lost his rope on in Round 1.”

But that didn’t matter much to Tyler Wade.

“I’ve got the best one,” he said as he swung his Powerline Lite and strolled out to the Thomas & Mack alley to get on Espuela Bro—the 14-year-old-gelding he calls Spur—to ride into the box first out.

Best one or not, Wade, 30, and Yates, 27, made it work. The flag fell in 3.9 seconds, and in the toughest pen of steers of the week—the same pen that saw six no-times in Round 1—the time held through 14 more teams.
