The world’s top 24 bull riders will meet in a head-to-head, single elimination format to determine the next “Iron Cowboy” in the Dickies® Iron Cowboy IV. The PBR event also will feature country music artist Kevin Fowler.
The winner will receive $50,000 and the opportunity to ride top-ranked bull Shepherd Hills Tested for another $50,000. To get to that point, the winner will potentially ride five bulls in one night, including eight seconds on either world champion bull Bushwacker or Asteroid.
Bushwacker possesses the longest buck-off streak in PBR history, has only been ridden once in his career and hasn’t been ridden since 2009. Asteroid has a 100 percent buck-off percentage this year. The weigh-in for the Bulls occurs Thursday afternoon at 1 p.m.
The PBR is the world’s premier bull riding organization. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the founding of the PBR.
