Structure of the Super Series

The Super Series is organized into five three-day series, two Semifinal rounds, a Wild Card round and a Championship. Each series includes three rounds, with one round being performed each day. There are eight contestants in each rodeo event during the series. Each series advances the top four money winners in each event to one of the two Semifinal rounds, where 10 athletes compete in each rodeo event. Both Semifinal rounds send the top four athletes in each event to the championship, while the remaining six move to the Wild Card round for a second chance at earning a spot in the Championship. From the Wild Card, the top two athletes in each event advance to the Championship. The Championship round includes all 10 athletes competing in each event. The top four advance and immediately ride again in the Shootout round to determine the event champion.
