Personal Information

After being the reserve champion 3 of the past 5 years, Rory finally got the job done and can call himself the 2018 World Champion Outrider. In addition to winning his first World Championship, Rory took home additional accolades for the second consecutive year at the Calgary Stampede GMC Rangeland Derby, the Calgary Stampede Aggregate Title, and Guy Weadick Days, and added the Saskatoon World Chuckwagon Races and the Strathmore Stampede all with Kurt Bensmiller. He helped Dayton Sutherland win his first show title at the Battle of the Rockies, and pinch rode the championship final at Medicine Hat for Cody Ridsdale’s first career win. 2018 also saw Rory receive the Calgary Stampede Outstanding Outrider Award for the fourth consecutive year, and was the high point outrider at Guy Weadick Days and the Ponoka Stampede. Rory has twice won the GMC Rangeland Derby, three times the Calgary Stampede Aggregate title, and the 2017 Ponoka Stampede. Rory started his outriding career in 2008 after attending outriding great Dale Gray's outriding school in the spring and began his rookie season soon after with the Laboucane family on the Canadian Professional Chuckwagon Association (CPCA) circuit. In just five years on the CPCA circuit, Rory twice was the CPCA Champion Outrider, and was the CPCA's High Point Rookie Outrider in 2008. A farmer and rancher in the off season, Rory also works for as an oilfield maintenance worker for Ken's Oilfield, and enjoys team roping, hunting, fishing and hockey in his spare time. Rory and his wife Jamie have a daughter - Fletcher - and make their home in Mervin, Saskatchewan.
