Boxholm native, Wade Sundell made his mark winning big money as a rodeo rider but a dirt bike accident had him watching from the sidelines at the Dayton Rodeo this weekend.

The crowd still cheered him on as the announcer introduced him Monday.

“Mark my words... he'll be a world champion.”

Sundell is a saddle bronc riding champion, but a foot injury is keeping him out of competition for now.

Currently standing in 7th in the pro rodeo money list, he says he'll test his skills out again in a couple weeks to see how it feels.

“Definitely win that gold buckle that’s the main goal everybody wants to do. It's been right there, real close hopefully one of these times we'll capitalize and it will be good,” Sundell said.

The finals are in December.

Sundell has traveled all over the country but he said it has been good to be home while he is healing.
