Pro Bullrider to Compete in New Tournament After Worst Accident of His Career
As such, he has no memory of the horrific wreck that left him with two collapsed lungs, five broken ribs and the scare of his career.
“I don’t remember anything about it. It happened pretty fast,” the professional bull rider from Ponoka, Alta., said. “I remember the bull left me a little behind, and then I went over his head. That’s the last thing I remember.”
Lambert, a 30-year-old who has been riding bulls professionally for 17 years, was recalling the most serious accident of his career, in May at the Stavely rodeo in Alberta. Upon being bucked off soon after leaving the chutes, his bull proceeded to stomp on the back of his head and then on his chest, which caused significant bleeding.
