Lane Frost - Last Ride

bull rodeo riding national

The Cheyenne Frontier Days, a nine-day-long event attended by tens of thousands of rodeo fans, is one of the biggest, best-known, oldest (begun in 1897), and most prestigious rodeos in the country. The bull riding championships are held on the last day of the rodeo, which was Sunday, July 30, in 1989. Frost had already completed two rides earlier in the week, and he was in second place coming into the last day. He completed his ride on a tough bull, Takin' Care of Business, on which he had failed to complete a ride at another rodeo about a month prior. At the end of the eight seconds, Frost did his trademark dismount, rolling off of the animal's left hindquarters. Normally, when this was done with the bull was charging forward, it gave Frost plenty of time to get up and away before the bull could change directions and threaten him. However, on this day the bull turned and charged almost immediately. It had rained a great deal that week, and Frost, still on his knees, could get no traction in the thick mud. The bull struck him twice. The first blow knocked him flat on the ground; the second, with one of the bull's horns, fractured several ribs and severed a major artery, although the horn did not break his skin. Frost managed to get up and run for the gate, but he collapsed and died before he reached it.

I was named after the greatest bullrider ever, Lane Frost. He was a Champion of man. very few men come out to be the kind of man Lane Frost was. Lane Frost will always be the greatest bullrider no matter what happens. No one will ever be able to match the skill of Lane on or off the bull.

No Jamie 8 seconds is not a lie. it portrays lanes story and how things started out. and if you really knew him you'd know his last name was spelt hedEman not hedAman. Tuff was a hard a** for a long time but being around lane caused him to lighten up a bit and become a crowd favorite as well. so please check your facts before you get on here and bullspit so these others will respect you. and if you have anything to say, ill gladly see ya in the chutes and discuss this after a ride or two

I have seen 8 Seconds so many times I've lost count. As a life member of the PBR that has worked behind the shoots many times I can say that Lane was loved so much by the industry and is still missed and always will be. He was one of the most influential riders that has made the sport as popular as it is today. God Bless You Lane and keep an eye on your riders that look up to you. You were and are one of the best in the business!! Yes I cry at the end of 8 Seconds everytime myself.

Actually, "8 Seconds" is a Hollywood-ized version of the story... if you want the real story, get the documentary called "Challenge of the Champions - the story of Lane Frost and Red Rock" at http://www.lanefrost.com
This is the real story with interviews by all the people involved in the story and featuring footage of some of the Challenge rides and interviews with Lane. If you want the DVD signed by Lane's folks Clyde and Elsie, request that when you purchase it through that site.

Lane,

The perfect example of what hard work and persistance can do for an individual! I first learned of lane, from my brother as he watched him on TV. I then became refamiliarized with Lane's quest as the best, "Which he undoubtably was!" I meant his best friend Tuff in Cheyenne and I gave him my condolences. Tuff said to me, "Partner, he is still here and will always be with all the cowboys, as they ride those damned, stubborn bulls."

Lane Frost is my frikin hero. i have to say i am the biggest bullriding fan there is. my brothers and cousins ride, i got 2 brothers that ride, 2 cousins and so many friends that ride that i can't even count, everytime they ride, we take a minute out and pray, it's amazing how powerful god is, and how he can keep my boys save. my daddy has a bullriding practice pin at his house and my whole life revolves around that place. those guys mean everything to me and if i were to lose one of them, i don;t know what i'd do without them :( they are my everything. my brother is 16 and is an amazing rider, i'm hoping when he gets old enough, we'll get to go to Cheyenne, Wyoming and get to ride at Cheyenne Frontier Days. just like lane frost. rest in peace lane(: you'll never be forgotten i promise!

even though lane is gone people still know him for how much he cared for people and never gave up in what he believed in...you didn't have to be alive in lanes lifetime to know how much he impacted the rodeo. the movie "8 seconds" is probably the best movie to watch if you have dreams that you want to fulfill. every time i watch the movie i cry because i feel sorry for his family since lane was such a wonderful person it must have been very hard to lose someone like him. but lane is in a better place and probably having the time of his life trying to beat someone in bull riding:) and when you watch the movie listen to what lane says because he is one of my heros and he can make you want to reach for your dreams:)

First of all i wanted to say thanks to Lane Frost, not only was he a great bull rider, to this day he saves cowboys lives everyday. The vest they invented after his death has and will save many riders lives. The other thing everyone should know is what his mother says in a documentery call Lane Frost A Mothers Story. Lane was a Christian they didn't show this in the movie because the director called himself a agnostic in other words i call that a non believer pretty much. In the documentery it shows Lanes last ride to the end. It was so hard to watch the end of that ride. I believe you can still order the documentery for 10 dollars if you google Lane Frost A Mothers Story. It is a great tribute to Lane. The movie made it as if he had time to get away from the bull clearly if you watch the tape, Lane had virtually no way of escaping the tragic event. But i just want to say thanks to Lane for being such a great individual and one of the greatest bull riders to ever ride a bull.

Lane Frost.The greatest bull rider of all time. One of the biggest inspirations of all time. I myself look up to him as not only a hero, but as a fellow christian. Of course, Lane did die before i was born, but his story still has a huge affect on me. Before i ever watched 8 seconds. i had heard about him and didn't think much.After 8 seconds, i just researched and researched about him. Trying to find out everything i could. I've learned from Lane, more than any school teacher could teach me. I learned to cowboy up. Grab life by the horns and dont look back. Be proud of what you have and even what you dont have. Live life to the fullest, and treasure what the lord has given you. God bless you Lane and his family. Thank you so much for opening my eyes and letting me see how it should be. You truly are a angel.



With Love,

Big huge mistake on this web site , thats not when he was born july 13 1956 .He was born oct 12 1963.Plus 8 secs wasn't a full true story of Lane Frost and his family....People want to do tribute pages for their heros but cant even get basic facts correct.



RIDE ON LANE , RIDE ONE !

Cowboy up !

I just finished watching 8 seconds. He seemed like he was such a warm, loving and giving person with such great talent. It's a shame he was taken away so early in life. It seems like he still had so much more to give to this world. God Bless him and his family.

lane was an amazing bull rider. i had too do a papepr on him i could have pick anyone from texas, but i figured that he would be the on for me, i mean i felt like i new him better:) i learned more that i ever new about lane and that he cared about evreyone and that he wasnt selfish like a lot of other people that are famous and "specail". he alays had a smile on in his pictures and that is what i like about him. he didint just think that he was amazing he thought the same about evreyone else and he inspired me to be just like him. i evan wonna ride bulls and i no that sound weir an dall but its true, and when i sawl that movie 8secnds i cried and cried it was like someone from my own family or frands had died and i jut felt the pain like i was there. my eyes were RED and evreything! it is sooo sad that someonr like that had too be takken so fast and erly. i love LANE FROST!!! how could you not feel the same way?!?!

Lane Was The Best Bullrider on the face of the earth!..he was an awesome role model for kids..i have to do a term paper on someone i admire the most and i picked Lane!..if Lane was still alive i would go to the end of the world to be able to watch him ride..its very upsetting that his life was taken from him so early and in the prime of his career!.RIP Lane..you will ALWAYS be remembered!
