Frost's parents have authorized Cowboy Bible: The Living New Testament, with a sketch of him on the cover. A documentary titled "The Challenge of the Champions: The Story of Lane Frost and Red Rock" premiered in 2008. It covers the match between them.

Before he could even walk, Lane Frost knew he wanted to be a bull rider. Born into a rodeo family at La Junta, Colorado, in 1963, young Frost attempted to ride any young calf he could get cornered on his family’s dairy ranch. Eventually this youthful practice would serve him well as he pursued his rodeo ambitions. (Source: nationalcowboymuseum.org)

Lane Frost was as well-known for his friendly smile and magnetic personality as for his bull riding excellence. Frost credited his father, Clyde, and his friend and mentor, the late Freckles Brown, with teaching him to ride bulls and encouraging him to be a champion. Frost’s bull riding abilities were amazing. In addition to the 1987 world championship, Frost won the 1986 National Finals Rodeo aggregate title, circuit championships and many of the PRCA’s biggest rodeos. Frost, born Oct. 12, 1963, in La Junta, Colo., paired with the 1987 PRCA Bucking Bull of the Year, Red Rock, who was previously unridden in 309 attempts, for a seven-ride match. Frost emerged the winner, 4-3. After an 85-point ride at 1989 Cheyenne (Wyo.) Frontier Days, Frost was hit in the back by the bull’s horns and died (July 30) of internal injuries caused by broken ribs. (Source: www.prorodeohalloffame.com)

Lane Clyde Frost was born in October 1963. At that time, his parents lived in Lapointe, Utah. However, Lane’s father, Clyde, was rodeoing and Lane’s mother, Elsie, went to stay with her parents in Kim, Co., while she waited for Lane to arrive. Lane was born in the hospital at La Junta, Co., the closest hospital to Kim. At 5 months, Frost was interested in the bull riding events at the rodeos his parents attended. His mom made his first pair of chaps for him. She admits to hoping he “would out-grow this bull riding thing.” (Source: www.mcalesternews.com)
