PBR Unleashed the Beast at Golden 1 [Photos]

Celebrating its 25th Anniversary tour, PBR (Pro Bull Riders) took over Sacramento’s Golden 1 Center last weekend, between January 26th and 28th. A blend of pyrotechnics, animals, clowns, and cowboys made this an electrifying show of the sport.

Each of the 3 days offered a different format for competition. Saturday and Sunday events included preliminary rounds culminating in a final event where bulls were paired with riders.

Saturday’s event was formed from the top 15 bulls and top 15 riders of the preliminary rounds paired by lottery.

Sunday’s event was between the top 15 bulls and riders with the riders choosing the bull. It was an afternoon where the bulls had the upper hand. There were exciting rides, spectacular buck offs and lots of shenanigans by the clowns (Matadors).

Enjoy a selection of photos from Sunday’s event, below.

Sunday’s winner was Ramon de Lima riding More Big Bucks. One of the few riders to complete the 8 seconds on the massive bull.

Buck offs were the majority of the riders experiences.
Stanley tools, a major sponsor of PBR offered one lucky attendee a chance to demonstrate a virtual stud finder by showing off their dance moves on the large screen monitor. Here is the winner with her prize.

Lead Matador chomping on a rock! Crazy antics by the matadors entertained the crowd while keeping the cowboys safe.
