Atherton’s Kurt Shephard will be the only Australian rider competing in PBR action this weekend. The 24-year-old will be one of 28 cowboys in the draw at the Belton Spring Fling PBR Touring Pro Division event in Texas.
The Spring Fling will be a two-day, four round event where riders will take on bulls from the ABBI’s Derby, Classic and Maturity divisions. As is usually the case with the early season ABBI events, it is tough to track down information on these bulls.
Here are Shephard’s match ups for both nights of competition:
Round 1 – Reckless Tested (EJ Cattle Co.)
Round 2 – Screamer (D4 Cattle Co.)
Round 3 – Jumper (Halpain & Roth)
Round 4 – Livin’ Right (Martinez Bucking Bulls, LLC)
I do not doubt that the American Bucking Bull will stream this event live on Facebook so have a look at this week’s edition of The PBR Rundown to see what time to tune in.
Check back on Monday afternoon to find out how Kurt Shephard fared in my Weekend PBR Wrap Up.
