Cody Hancock

Professional bull riding world champion

 World champion bull rider Cody Hancock.   The young rodeo star comes from good bloodlines. His father Ray rode bulls in the Turquoise Circuit and has made four trips to the National Senior Pro Rodeo Finals. “My dad loves to go to rodeos with me and he still gets on bulls, Hancock said. We get along real well and he has helped me a lot. He drove all the way to Calgary and watched me ride and then helped me get home. He has always been there for me.” His mother Twila has also been a big supporter of the young champion. “If Dad was with me on the road then mom was taking care of things at home, Hancock continued. My parents were there all 10 days and it was great to have them at NFR to share the win.”


Hancock’s younger brother Wyatt is also involved with rodeo and spent a year at CSI before serving an LDS mission in Alaska with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS). Cody has also served an LDS mission and says it helped him to become a stronger person mentally and spiritually. “My faith helps me stay focused,” says Hancock. “I don’t drink alcohol or chew tobacco and I’ve gotten a lot of respect from guys on the road. I think kids need guys to look up to in rodeo and hopefully I can be a positive influence.”
