Bill gets a little crazy about Jaca

AFTER talking the talk, DEX sport editor Bill North will walk the walk - or should that be ride the ride?

After writing about the Jacaranda Rodeo, North decided to put his money where his mouth was and show Grafton his own riding talent - on the Jacaranda Crazy Cow.

"I'm feeling a little nervous. As the new bloke in town I'm not quite sure what I've gotten myself into," he said.

"But after receiving plenty of heat regarding my "expert advice" in today's DEX, I have to back up my words and ride into action. I've watched a few good rodeo spills in my time but apart from a "pubride" in Dubbo many moons ago, I must admit I'm jumping into this one a little cold."

See Bill in action from 1pm today. Rumour has it he is not the only DEX staff member taking on the Crazy Cow challenge.
