Episode Recap

Chopper and his bunch get thrown out of a saloon because Chopper is trying to pay with slugs. They see that Wheelie is entering a roadeo and Chopper decides that he wants to enter too.

The roadeo starts and Revs spreads glue in front of Chopper to stop the charging tractor and Chopper easily ropes it. It's now Wheelie's turn and Hi Riser switches ropes with Wheelie and when Wheelie starts to twirl the rope, it falls to pieces. Chopper gives Wheelie another rope and when Wheelie twirls this one, he takes off like a helicopter and lands on the tractor. Chopper uses a red cloth to attract and cause the tractor to charge at him. Revs and Hi Riser build a wall and the tractor hits it and Wheelie is sent flying through another wooden wall.

The announcer says that whoever wins the final event will be the winner of the trophy. It's a race across the desert. Chopper and his bunch try and trick Wheelie and it backfires. Chopper then tries to use a cactus slingshot to make it to the finish line first and he hits the finish line banner and is bounced back into the cactus and Wheelie wins the race.
