ARLINGTON — WFAA's Ted Madden won a mechanical bull riding competition for the media Wednesday afternoon, outlasting nine other entrants.

The Professional Bull Riders Tour (PBR) is in town this week for their competition Saturday night at Cowboys Stadium. To promote the event, they had members from the local media see how long they could last on a mechanical bull, with three pro bull riders acting as judges.

The competition was bracket-style, like the NCAA basketball tournament, meaning the entrants faced off one-on-one, with the winner advancing to the next round.

For outlasting all opponents, Ted won a $2,500 donation to his charity, the Spencer Squire All-Star Foundation.
