With an event this size we certainly need a great group of dependable volunteers to help with everything from serving meals to cleaning up trash, scoring the competitors to judging the event and resetting cones to selling t shirts. The volunteer opportunities are vast over the four day period but they are broken up into small segments so you can donate a few hours here and there of your time. It’s the best way to see the competition! CLICK HERE TO VOLUNTEER
Attention Motor Cops: Our event features open courses to accommodate Goldwing and Victory motorcycles. We welcome and encourage beginner riders; if you haven't ever competed and are interested in getting involved, this is the rodeo for you! We also invite your family members to participate and have meals with you in the competitor area and in the evenings.

In 2014, the Travis County Sheriff’s office, along with partnering agencies from Williamson, Travis and Hays Counties, hosted the inaugural COTPMCO 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 from 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 COTPMCO grew to 85 motorcycle cops from 27 agencies, representing eight different states. New events were introduced and a new Mr. Rodeo structure was put in place. 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 124 motorcycle cops from 44 different agencies, representing 10 different states and Canada participated. Despite 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 four day period. In 2017 the 4th Annual Capital of Texas Police Motorcycle Chute Out hosted a record breaking 165 motor officers from 13 different states including Maui County PD and the US Secret Service. None of this would be possible without the continued support and loyalty be everyone involved.
As the event continues to grow, we are humbled by the support we have received and thank all of the competitors, volunteers, staff members, directors, sponsors, exhibitors and the City of Buda. Over the past four years, COTPMCO has raised just shy of $80,000 to donate to various charities and causes. Moving into the 5th year the mission still remains; train officers to improve skills and build confidence, develop a strong network of resources for motorcycle cops and raise funds for charity, riding for a cause!
