Personal Information
One of chuckwagon racing’s rising young stars, Cole just completed his 3rd consecutive year on the WPCA Pro Tour. Cole was the 2015 WPCA Top Rookie Outrider and won his first show championship at the 2016 Battle of the Rockies outriding for Chad Harden. He filled in for the championship final heat at the 2016 Ponoka Stampede on Colt Cosgrave’s winning outfit, and placed 6th in the World Standings. Cole learned the art of holding leaders for several years in the Western Chuckwagon Association (WCA) before shifting his attention to becoming an outrider, and made his debut ride for Cody Ridsdale in 2014 on the last day of the season in Rocky Mountain House. Cole is the grandson of former driver Glen Somerville and the son of current WCA driver Kelly Somerville. He works in the oilpatch in the off season and enjoys hockey, music, playing guitar, working out and carpentry as his hobbies. Cole's girlfriend is trick rider Korrie Stewart, and makes his home in Manning, Alberta.
