The word Rodeo, in Spanish, has several acceptions. You are using the verb Rodear, but in the text the word Rodeo is a noun (Deporte típico de algunos países americanos que consiste en mantenerse montado a pelo sobre un caballo o res salvaje el mayor tiempo posible y hacer otros ejercicios de habilidad, como echar el lazo.)
