The Breakaway Roping Journal rounded top moments from the World Champion’s Rodeo Alliance (WCRA) and Women’s Rodeo World Championships (WRWC) in bite-size breakaway roping TikToks for a convenient brain break no matter the time or place.
Breakaway roping is a sport done in an instant, so studying breakaway videos in both slow motion and regular speed gives viewers a change to glean small details from top athletes.

What is the WCRA?
According to the WCRA,
“Since launching in May of 2018, the World Champions Rodeo Alliance (WCRA) and its partners have awarded millions in new money to rodeo athletes. Qualifying is based on points, rather than dollars won, through our world ranking points system.
The WCRA is a professional sport and entertainment entity, created to develop and advance the sport of rodeo by aligning all levels of competition. In association with PBR, WCRA produces major rodeo events, developing additional opportunities for rodeo industry competitors, stakeholders and fans.”
Here’s the translation….
For most of the year, think of the WCRA as a sidepot that’s just in the background—a floating association. They don’t require co-sanctioning with any associations, there’s no membership fees. But, they have “Triple Crown of Rodeo,” events that happen throughout the year, which are comparative bonus finals.
So how do I enter WCRA events?
You can choose to just go to one and nominate for that single event, or you can nominate to multiple on one entry and try to hit all of their events in a given year.
Ropers can nominate any event, anywhere, any time. It could be a WPRA rodeo or open jackpot. The WCRA creates a double-dip effect using a points system.
The Breakaway Roping Journal thanks the WCRA for their commitment to furthering the sport of breakaway, including breakaway at their Triple Crown events with equal added money. Because of their support, BRJ can continue to bring industry updates to breakaway ropers and fans across the country.
