Kelly Timberman was once an NFR Champ and Wyoming Sports Hall of Fame Athlete of the Year. He's dealt with his fair share of trouble over the years. After four years of being away from rodeo, he's back in the sport a changed man.
"It was a humbling experience to stay home. I had
such a prolific career that I took advantage of it," Timberman said. "I didn't stay at the
top peak level that I should have and did a disservice to myself, but
also to my friends and family and fans who followed me in wyoming
His reason for leaving the sports...well that's fairly
"I took time off for the best reason in the world. I took time
off to be a dad. My daughter moved in with me at the end of 2011. I
retired at the end of that year," Timberman said. "I pretty much retired from 2012 until
she got into college and I decided I had some unfinished business left
and one of them was to come and win Cheyenne."
