In 2014, the Travis County Sheriff’s office, along with partnering agencies from Williamson, Travis and Hays Counties, hosted the Inaugural Capital of Texas Police Motorcycle Chute Out in Buda, TX. The event was a huge success thanks to the hours of work put in by the law enforcement agencies, amazing support by sponsors and vendors and a great showing of 60+ motorcycle cops from 20+ agencies in Texas and Louisiana. Spectators came out by the hundreds to watch the officers compete, enjoy the exhibitor show, watch jaw dropping stunt riders, check out motorcycles and talk with officers. After three full days of events and community support, we raised $20,000 to be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project and the Center for Child Protection.
Through an outpouring of support and a little marketing, the 2nd Annual Capital of Texas Police Motorcycle Chute Out grew to 85 motorcycle cops from 27 agencies, representing 8 different states! New events were introduced and a new Mr. Rodeo structure was put in place. The Board opted to split Mr. Rodeo prizes into two different winners, including Mr. Rodeo-Harley and Mr. Rodeo-Metric. Each winner received a Texas flag flown over the State of Texas Capitol building, a yeti tank, Motolights, a custom Seer helmet as well as waived entry fees and a complimentary hotel room to come and defend their title the following year. The new structure was well received, so we carried it over to the 3rd Annual Capital of Texas Police Motorcycle Chute Out in 2016, during which an additional 124 motorcycle cops from 44 different agencies, representing 10 different states and Canada participated! Dispite the heat, humidity and random rain storms, these men and our very first female rider, competed in newly designed courses that extended over an extended 4 day period. As the Capital of Texas Police Motorcycle Chute Out continues to grow, we are humbled by the amount of support we have received and thank all of the competitors, volunteers, staff members, board members, sponsors, exhibitors and the City of Buda! The COTPMCO has raised over $56,000 over the past three years to donate to charity! We hope you will join us in 2017 for the 4th Annual Capital of Texas Police Motorcycle Chute Out.
