Mote second in all-around standings

Bain in good position
Bobby Mote is winning money in more ways than one this rodeo season.
   The four-time world champion bareback riding champion has added team roping to his arsenal and is currently second in the Professional Rodeo Cowboy's Association world standings in the race for the all-around champion.
   Mote, who has won a total of $78,168 this year, trails only Trevor Brazile ($168,449) in the all-around standings.
   In bareback riding, Mote is in seventh place with $61,810 earned, while nearby Culver neighbor Brian Bain stands in 11th place with $46,053 earned. The two are on pace to qualify for the year-end National Finals Rodeo held in Las Vegas, Nev. Only the top 15 contestants in each category qualify for the NFR. All bareback riders are chasing Steven Dent ($96,168) for the top spot.
   Mote has also pocketed $17,030 for 45th place in team roping standings. He teams with Mike Beers as the team's header.
