21yo Francisco Torres Looks To Become First Mexican Iron Cowboy Winner

De rancho to internationally recognized pro bull rider

21-year-old Torres is one of the most decorated young bull riding champions in Mexico. 

Francisco García Torres was born and raised on a small ranch in La Providencia, Saltillo. He tells PBR:

“When I was a kid, I started riding sheep and little calves at my grandfather’s ranch."

He tried his first steer at 6-years-old.

"All my family were cowboys. They’re ranchers," says Torres, who taught himself how to ride bulls by watching videos online.

After winning back-to-back national titles in 2015 and 2016 in the Federación Mexicana de Rodeo, Torres went on to represent Mexico in the Sydney Global Cup and came back to win the Professional Bull Riding Mexico Championship in 2018.

Now, Torres been invited to compete with 40 other top riders at Iron Cowboy in Los Angeles this weekend, where he is looking to become the first Mexican to ever win the title.

Suerte!
