After the long weekend in the USA, the PBR is starting to post daysheets for this week’s events, and it is shaping up to be a big weekend in North America for our Aussie bull riders.
All Unleash The Beast and Velocity Tour events will be broadcast live on Ridepass. Check out this week’s PBR Rundown for all the times and details.
I have also included next week’s Touring Pro Division event in Pendleton, Oregon, as the draw for that event should be out in the early part of the weekend.
Let’s jump into this week’s matchups:
Thursday – PBR Real Time Pain Relief Velocity Tour – Window Rock, AZ.
Nathan Burtenshaw makes the midweek trip to the capital of the Navajo Nation as looks to make up more ground in the 2019 PBR World Standings.
The Coonamble bull rider faces Lil Willard from Richardson Land & Cattle Company. This bull has bucked four times in PBR competition and has been covered just once. That qualified ride was marked 86 points and went to Colton Jesse in Rocksprings, Texas last year.
Friday – PBR Canada Touring Pro Division – McGrath, AB.
Tamworth’s Lachlan Slade will be out nice and early in Section 1 against Jihad Joe from Flying High Rodeo Company.
I have not been able to track down any information on this bull.
Saturday – PBR Unleash The Beast – Anaheim, CA.
Kurt Shephard will be the lone Aussie on the Premier Tour and he will face Lil Bit Crazy from Dakota Rodeo, Chad Berger and Clay Struve on the opening night.
It’s very rare that I can’t find any information on one of Chad’s bulls but it has been very hard for Lil Bit Crazy.
Sunday – PBR Unleash The Beast – Anaheim, CA.
After putting together a great ride in Round 1, Kurt Shephard will face Uncle Slim from Rodriguez Bucking Bulls.
This bull has had just two PBR outs, and both were at Touring Pro events during the summer where the riders bucked off mid-ride, and the bull was marked 41 points. I haven’t been able to track down any vision.
Sunday – PBR Real Time Pain Relief Velocity Tour – Peoria, IL.
Lachlan Slade returns to the USA after competing in Canada to take on Pearl from Mike Miller Bucking Bulls in the long round.
I don’t have any information on this bill.
Check back on Tuesday for a full Wrap-Up of all the Aussie results.
