It’s hard to believe how fast this week has gone. While the support events are starting to wind up, the 2019 PBR World Finals is heating up!
Check out The PBR Rundown for all the Australian timings.
2019 PBR World Finals – Round 3 Review
It was an 0-for-3 night for the Aussie riders inside T-Mobile last night.
Brady Fielder was first to ride, and he didn’t get the cleanest start aboard South Texas Gangster (Dakota Rodeo/Julie Rosen/Clay Struve/Chad Berger). The bull turned back to the right, but Fielder ended up in the well at 2.83 seconds with the bull marked 43-points.
Cliff Richardson looked to have a favourable matchup with Finning Lil Shorty (Flying Four Bucking Bulls), but things didn’t go to plan with the bull turning left and staying left. It was a 42.75 point trip for the bull, and the buck off was recorded at 4.96 seconds.
Richardson sits in 8th place in the event aggregate.
Lawson Nobbs made his debut inside T-Mobile Arena but his night ended at 3.49 seconds at the hands of Marquis Metal Works Gangster’s Wildside (Paradigm Bull Company). It was a 42.5 point trip for the bull who turned back to the left and into Nobbs’ hand.
Jess Lockwood spurred up Biker Bob (Dakota Rodeo/Chad Berger/Clay Struve/H&C Bucking Bulls) for 92 points and the round win. Jose Vitor Leme could only manage 89.5 points aboard Birthday Cake (M Rafter E Bucking Bulls/Goods Bucking Bulls) which split third in the round, and the gap has been trimmed to just over 400 points in the race for the Gold Buckle.
2019 PBR World Finals – Round 4 Preview
Brady Fielder will once again lead the Aussies off in Section 1. He faces Big City Nights (Vold Rodeo) who is an unridden Canadian bull. From the vision I have been able to find, this bull looks an excellent chance for Fielder to post his first score of the finals. This bull should turn back to the right and wind his way across the front of the chutes.
Lawson Nobbs will be out in the second section aboard Jasper (Wentz Bucking Bulls/New West Rodeos). This bull has been out ten times at the Unleash the Beast level with three high 80-point rides recorded. He has loads of dirty tricks up his sleeve and doesn’t have a set pattern so Nobbs will need to stay on his toes.
Cliff Richardson rides in Section 4 tonight against Gangster Boy (Rickey West) who has been covered just twice from 29 trips. Both of those have gone to right-handers. This bull mixes trips but his last few he has taken a few long jumps to clear the chutes and then turns sharply to the right with most riders caught on their pockets.
