Before leaving, Lincoln said the opportunity to sell at Calgary was “pretty special”.
“It’s somewhere I’ve always dreamed of going and ending up, it was super special for me to win the Australian competition, let alone to go and compete with the best in the world on such a big stage like the Calgary Stampede,” he said.
