The two kingpins of rodeo and bull riding reside in Decatur, and both of them are in position to set world records after winning titles last weekend in the western states.

The Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association’s No. 1 cowboy is Trevor Brazile, who earned $16,221 after winning the tie-down roping title at the Justin Boots Playoffs, an invitational show in Puyallup, Wash. The Professional Bull Riders’ top cowboy is Silvano Alves, who pocketed $42,750 after winning the Built Ford Tough Series tour stop in Oakland, Calif.

After earning additional checks in Lewiston, Idaho, and Fort Madison, Iowa, Brazile’s total earnings last week were $19,352. He is on pace to win a record 11th world all-around title. He is No. 1 in the 2013 world all-around standings with $193,216, $77,016 ahead of Tuf Cooper, who has $116,600.

Brazile clinched the tie-down roping title at Puyallup after turning in a final round time of 7.9 seconds. Other winners of the $422,000 rodeo were bareback rider Jessy Davis (87 points), steer wrestler Trevor Knowles (3.2 seconds), team ropers Brandon Beers and Jim Ross Cooper (6.2 seconds), saddle bronc rider Wade Sundell (84 points), bull rider J.W. Harris (88 points) and barrel racer Sherry Cervi (14.81 seconds).

At the PBR’s tour stop in Oakland, Alves, a Brazilian, clinched the title after finishing as the only cowboy who stayed on all three bulls. Brazilian Valdiron de Oliveira, who also lives in Decatur, finished second and earned $16,480.

Alves, who is attempting to win a record third consecutive PBR world title, is ranked No. 1 in the Ford Series world standings with 9,228.75 points, Joao Ricardo Vieira is second with 7,507.48. Marco Eguchi is ranked No. 3 with 6,944.3, and J.B. Mauney is fourth with 6,936.

Legendary cutting horse rider Buster Welch of Rotan also received an American Cowboy Culture Lifetime Achievement Award. He has won a record five open division titles at the National Cutting Horse Association World Championship Futurity.
