Since coming onto the Professional Bull Riding scene in 2010, Triplett’s focus and determination have defined him as a rider. While 2015 was the Columbia Falls, MT, bull rider’s best year to date, 2016 was a trying season for Triplett as he sat most of the season out recovering from major shoulder surgery. However, making a full recovery before the end of the 2016 season, Triplett came back to win Velocity Tour and Touring Pro events. Carrying this momentum into 2017, Triplett secured two early season event wins on the Touring Pro series in Australia, and is well positioned to make another run for his first World Championship.

Life's Moments & Inspirations

My greatest achievement has been... Was in 2013 when I made the finals with only the last three events of the season! Topped it off by riding my first bull at the finals as well.
My biggest inspiration is... My dad! because he showed me how to become a man, and to never give up and always finish what you start.
My next ambition is... My only ambition is to be a world champion.
How I relax is... Yoga
My advice to the young athletes starting out is... Workout, try hard, and never give up on your goals, set day goals.
