Aussies Abroad – 27-Sep

There is only one event scheduled outside Australia this weekend and that is the Pendleton Whiskey Velocity Tour event in Portland, Maine.

Three Aussie bull riders will compete in the two-day event and they all need solid results if they are to make it to Vegas and PBR Finals Week.

2019 PBR Pendleton Whiskey Velocity Tour – Portland, ME.


Kurt Shephard is scheduled to ride in the second section of Round 1 against El Chivato from Triple R Bull Company. This bull has bucked six times in the PBR and given up two qualified rides in the mid-80 point range. He likes to look to the left before turning back to the right.

Nathan Burtenshaw will also be out in Section 2 with the Coonamble cowboy facing Triple R’s Adonis. Lachlan Slade bucked off this unridden bull last week in Syracuse and I still have been unable to track down any vision on this bull.

Lachlan Slade goes up against Blowin Smoke from J Bar W in Section 4. This bull has been around for a while and gets ridden very regularly. Scores are always in the mid-80 point range. He should be around to the right with a lot of forward movement.

Full Round 1 Draw


All three Australians will be out in Section 1 with Kurt Shephard away first. He faces Twinkle Toes from Kruger Bucking Bulls. The bull has been covered in all three of his PBR outs this season for scores of 85 points or higher.

Lachlan Slade goes up against Road Rage from Triple R Bull Company. This bulls has split his two career PBR performances with the cowboys. Ramon de Lima was 84.75 points just last weekend in New York.

Black Ice from J Bar W will be the opponent for Nathan Burtenshaw. The bull bucked twice last weekend and won both of his matchups, posting dual 42-point bull scores.

Full Round 2 Draw
