TUPELO, Okla. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Real cowboys always take the bull by the horns.

That’s what Oklahoma cowboys Cord and Jet McCoy did to come in second place on The Amazing Race this past Sunday (May 9).

The brothers say they were determined to “overcome anything” during the tough global trek and never once thought about giving up.

They figure that tenacity comes from working hard on a ranch their whole lives, which has also made them quite athletic.

Cord is a professional bull rider and used his endurance a lot on the Race, although he admits no challenge compared to taking a real-life bull by the horns.

The men believe they represented well with their positive attitudes and cowboy hats, which they managed to keep on nearly the entire time – even while bungee jumping.

They also enjoyed their cowboy theme music on every episode, although Jet would’ve preferred the theme song from Rocky.
