The World’s Toughest Rodeo came to Columbus Feb. 16 at Nationwide Arena. Eight professional cowboys got six rides total; four on the broncos and two on the bulls in just a 90 minute time frame. Whoever stayed on for eight seconds, with the most style, won the title and the deed of a 32-acre ranch in Colorado. Above, Chad Eubank, 29, of Fort Worth, Texas goes airbound when the bronco he’s riding proves to be too much of a beast to tame.
