"This is the biggest win of my career and it's great to win Denver for the first time," Breuer said in a press release.

Breuer won the first round and the average. He totaled a 246 on three head at the rodeo, which spanned 11 days and concluded Sunday.

He tied Jet Price for the win in the first round with an 83-point ride on Kesler Rodeos' Seat Sale, tied for second in the second round with another 83 and scored an 80 in the finals on Sunday.

"After my ride I didn't know if I was good enough for 80 points and I was nervous," Breuer said. "I've actually been nervous since last night. It was a good kind of nervous that makes you do better and I think it helped me concentrate on what I needed to do to win."

Breuer has $15,901 in earnings so far this season.
