For Jeff and Joe Bertus, brotherly love goes along with rodeo.
The brothers are both bull riders, and are good at it, too; both are ranked in pro rodeoâ€™s regional standings for the Dakotas, the Badlands Circuit, as No. 2 and No. 3, respectively.
They grew up in Avon, S.D., with Jeff the elder brother by two years. After
the boys watched the movie â€śEight Seconds,â€ť featuring bull rider Lane Frost, they fell in love with the thought of bull riding.
â€śWe thought it was the coolest thing in the world,â€ť Joe said.
