The competition took place as usual at the CASE Customer Centre Paris in Monthyon where contestants tackled tests at the controls of the newest CASE models: a compact track loader, crawler excavator, mini excavator, and full-size wheel loader. All four challenges pushed competitors to the limits of their abilities and demonstrated the extraordinary versatility and controllability of CASE equipment. All four parts of the Rodeo were run as a race against the clock, with time penalties imposed for failure to meet task requirements. The first of the challenges, “LAWLESS LOADER”, required competitors to drive a TV380 compact track loader along a defined path, pick-up three numbered boxes from pallets one-at-a-time, use the boxes to create a pyramid, then return all boxes to their original positions and reverse the compact loader to its garage. This challenge was won by Tomas Sooky of the Czech Republic.
