Today, Finals Week hits top gear with the 2019 PBR World Finals beginning at T-Mobile Arena tonight.
The ABBI Finals also continue as we crown three more champions plus we begin the search for a World Champion in the Mini Bull Riders and Freestyle Bull Fighting.
Check out The PBR Rundown for all the Australian timings.
2019 PBR World Finals – Round 1 Preview
The big dance kicks off with Round 1 of the ABBI Classic Competition. Some of these three and four-year-old bulls are up there with the rankest in the world. The number of bulls that we see ridden in these types of rounds can vary, but I think we will see a bunch of scores.
Both Australian cowboys will be out in Section 2 tonight.
Cliff Richardson will be first to ride, up against Excessive Force from Halpain and Martinelli. This is a bull that has not been ridden in his four trips against the Unleash The Beast riders. He gets out a long way from the chutes, rolling and looking left before he turns back to the right.
Brady Fielder has drawn Air Assault from 444 Bucking Bulls, Winston, Davis, Durham, Buck and D&H Cattle. This bull has not only been bucking in the Classic rounds but also in some of the Short Rounds. He has been ridden just once from seven trips on the Unleash The Beast. He shoots clear of the chutes and kicks hard before turning back to the right.
