The biggest week in bull riding kicks off today with the 2019 PBR Pendleton Whiskey Velocity Tour Finals. Round 1 will get underway inside the SouthPoint Arena at 7:00 pm on Saturday Las Vegas time.
Check out The PBR Rundown for all the Australian timings.
All of the heavy hitters in the PBR World Championship race will continue to duke it out over the next couple of nights against bulls in the ABBI Classic Wildcard and Derby competitions.
2019 PBR Pendleton Whiskey Velocity Tour Finals – Round 1 Preview
Two Australian riders are featured in the Velocity Tour Finals draw and both have drawn bulls carrying the Cord McCoy brand in the three-year-old competition. They will both be out in Section 3 on Night 1.
Lane Mellers will be the first Aussie to ride and he will be out against Perfecto. I have only been able to find the vision from one rider trip, but everything indicates that he will turn back to left with plenty of pace.
Just two outs later, Lawson Nobbs will take on Midnight Rock. This bull likes to take a long hop or two from the chute and then turn back sharply to the right and kick the lights out.
