Another great showing this weekend for the PBR. Continuing their focus on bringing sports to the masses of fans still stuck at home while dealing with the COVID-19 issues the PBR keeps rolling along. This week was the same venue with many of the same faces however a new outcome.
The weekend title this time goes to Lucas Divino who put together a string of rides for a grand total of 257.25 points. He capped off his winning weekend on Chiseled from Flinn and D&H Cattle for 90.75 points. This moves Lucas to number 7 in the world.
Other notable performances from Oklahoma include Stetson Lawrence who not long ago found himself falling off the tour after the event in Kansas City. He quickly put his focus on getting the job done which resulted in a Velocity tour win and a ticket back to the tour. Now with 2 strong showings in the last two weeks, it looks that Stetson has planted his feet firmly on the tour schedule.
Here are your top 5 from the event.
1-Lucas Divine-257,25 points;
2-Alex Cerqueira-254,75 points;
3-Stetson Lawrence-179,25 points;

In other stellar news, the PBR announced that instead of taking their standard summer break they are going to keep riding. PBR CEO Sean Gleason announced the new platform of the Monster Energy Team Challenge. The venue for the event moves the PBR action to Las Vegas South Point where this new format will be executed starting on June 5th and continue through the 28th. On July 10 through the 12 the PBR will pack up their show and take it to one of their biggest crowd venues in Sioux Falls South Dakota where they will conduct the finals of the team challenge.
There is much more to this that just riding bulls. This means athletes and the PBR have recognized the moral support their events are having on fans. This recognition has resulted in all of them sacrificing their summer break to keep something positive going to bull riding enthusiasts. It is a special type of team that is willing to work so hard to support fans and America.
