Professional Bull Riders Round 2 is in the books. As the Professional Bull Riders kicked off Round 2 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The race for the number one spot was highlighted for both Cowboy and Bovine. The largest question was; how many Cowboys could conquer the toughest pen of bulls? Even with the challenging change of venue for many fans, the new T-Mobile Arena is beginning to grow on the fans as they get use to the state of the art facility.
While the PBR had a great show lined up for the fans on Wednesday night with legendary rocker George Thorogood, Thursday night had the fans on their feet. Superstar Rick Springfield raised the roof as the iconic rocker and actor brought high energy to one of the biggest sports stages in the world. Eat your heart out National Football League.

Eugene Oregon – Wrangler Long Live Cowboy Classic

Eugene Oregon – Wrangler Long Live Cowboy Classic

Eugene, Oregon – Wrangler Long Live Cowboy Classics looks to be an interesting story for numerous reasons but with only four events left, the bubble riders and the injuries are the biggest stories.

Injuries

JB Mauney, #3

First, those who did not make the trip. Like world number three JB Mauney who is still suffering from a rib injury. JB is a wile veteran and has dealt with injuries this late in the year. But, with world number one Kaique Pacheco picking up points, will it turn out to be too little too late for JB? Probably not with 3,000 points available at Finals inside the T-Mobile arena. Tyler Harr has a rib injury and is out as is Ty Pozzobon and Marco Eguchi whom, while riding the bubble are trying to get healthy.

The PBR

PBR – Colorado Springs  There are only five events left starting with the former home of the Professional Bull Riders, Colorado Springs, Colorado. As the Final stretch kicks off there are lots of developments breaking in the PBR. With JB Mauney and Cooper Davis out due to injuries, can Kaique Pacheco start closing the door on those closes to him? If Kaique can get the win, he can make it a longer road for someone to catch him.

Thackerville, OK

Thackerville Oklahoma kicks off on September 3rd from the WinStar Casino. The PBR’s second outside rodeo of the year promises to be a huge chance to grab points towards the Gold Buckle and the BFTS Cup. With JB Mauney sitting out this week to recover from his injuries, who sitting from 4th -10th can stand up and make a points grab?
Even after a bad shoulder injury in Tulsa, Fabiano Vieira is giving it a roll in Thackerville. Knowing the injury set him back a lot in Nashville, he seems to want to push himself to move up in the stands. If Fabiano had been able to move up in Nashville and beaten Kaique, he would be number 1 right now. So dealing with pain and bad shoulders is nothing new for Fabiano, can he finish off the next few events without further injuries. Fabiano will test the two bad shoulders against Wheeler’s Heartbreaker.
Cooper Davis has shown streaks of brilliance and in Tulsa, Oklahoma it was a bright brilliance. Cooper who would go 3 for 3 and win his second event is now sitting in a tight second place only 20 points behind Kaique Pacheco. Can Cooper capitalize outside or is Kaique who has been close but not quite there the last two weeks finally cash in at the WinStar casino? Cooper matches up with Cool Hand Luke in the first round, let’s hope Cooper doesn’t have a failure to communicate.
Did a bull hoof in the chute gate cost JR Vieira a chance to climb up in the standings? JR seems to be bitten by the clock and until he learns to get out faster on his bulls he will have an extraordinary uphill battle to win a title. JR hopes for fair weather and safe landings against Flight Plan.
Kaique Pacheco still sits in number one. While he hasn’t been in the winner’s circle the first couple of events he’s been drafting right behind them and just not had enough bull power to take the win. As Kaique challenges Kongo in the first round he hopes to take the winning ticket to the cashier’s window inside the casino.
After 24 times of scratching his head and wondering what he was doing wrong. Shane Proctor finally covered a bull scoring 86.75 on High Razor. Can Shane start to ride and move up the standings are will the ghosts of 24 haunt him the rest of this year?
