There are a few PBR bull riding events that have caught my eye this weekend in the USA with a few Velocity Tour and Touring Pro Division events running alongside the Unleash the Beast tour.
I will update this where I can but I will be on the road and in Tamworth all weekend for Origin II.
Clovis – Touring Pro Division
Ky Hamilton is in action today (Thursday) at the Touring Pro Division event in Clovis, California. We might get lucky and be able to catch this event on Cowboy Channel Plus. I believe it kicks off around 11:00 am AEST.
Hamilton will ride in Section 2 of the long round and he faces Bringing Diamonds from the Flying U and Cindy Rosser. This bull has had just the one trip in the PBR and that was at the Velocity Tour event in Oakland where he was ridden for 81.5 points by Brady Oleson.
Clovis – Results
Hamilton covered Bringing Diamonds for 88-points to win the long round.
He faced off against OLS Tubs Sunny from Northcott Macza Pro Rodeo in the final out of the Championship Round, but he couldn’t make the whistle. The bull was marked 44-points in 2.11 seconds.
Hamilton finished the event in 5th place and moved to 84th in the PBR World Standings.
Nampa – UTB – Round 1
Brady Fielder kicks off the weekend ranked 20th in the world. He narrowly missed out on a spot in the 15/15 Bucking Battle too, so if there are any injuries he may get a call up for another bull.
Round 1 will commence at 11:45 am AEST on Saturday.
In the first round, he faces Longmire from Wentz Bucking Bulls near the end of Section 2. This bull bucked off three riders to begin his career on the Velocity Tour with bull scores of around 43-points. He then turned up at the UTB event in Los Angeles where he was ridden by Clayton Sellars for 87.5 points. The bull turned back to the right and gave an honest trip with no real tricks. Looks like a nice matchup!
Standby for more updates.
