Rodeo Austin is in full swing during spring break with the midway opening earlier to attract more crowds and its working on a beautiful Wednesday afternoon. Kendrina Walker, center left, and her friend Marian Maxwell, center right, have different reactions to the Super Shot ride as they rise slowly several feet off the ground before plunging rapidly back to earth. “I thought I was going to die.” said Maxwell. 


 Brent Denton, from Phoenix, Arizona, gives a demonstration on Moto X at the Pro Tour FMX show on the rodeo grounds, doing a 360 in the air before landing safely much to the applause of the audience. The rodeo continues through March 28.
