Twenty cowboys are ready to go to battle in Oklahoma. The 2013 Timed Event Championship of the World is set for March 1-3 at the Lazy E Arena.

The contestants will battle in one of the most rugged cowboy competitions ever created, roping and wrestling 25 animals in five go-rounds spread over just three days.

"The Timed Event shows the best talent of a cowboy, about being a great cowboy and being able to do anything," said Mike Outhier, an Oklahoma-born cowboy who is competing at the "Ironman" of ProRodeo for the first time in his career. "It's pretty special if you can do everything."

A portion of the proceeds from the 2013 Timed Event Championship will be donated to the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City.

Ticket prices are $37 for VIP, box seats $30, reserved bleachers $25 and general admission $20. Children 12 and under are free in general admission and VIP area.

Call (800) 595-RIDE for complete details.
