The Professional Bull Riders returns to New York City this month! I know you’re probably thinking why? There’s really not a high percentage of cowboys walking around NYC. But believe me it’s an experience you won’t forget! We went 2 years ago, and Andre loved it. He still talks about it to this day! My husband, well he won for worst dressed at the event because he was in a suit amongst all the Wrangler jeans and cowboy hats! LOL It was hysterical! You can check out my previous post here.
The action begins Friday and Saturday, January 16 and 17 at 8 p.m., and on Sunday, Jan. 18, at 1 p.m.
In 2014, New Yorkers witnessed the greatness of 2013 PBR World Champion J.B. Mauney, as he not only captured his third event win at Madison Square Garden (2007, 2009, 2014) by tying with Fabiano Vieira for the win this year, but he also continued his BFTS consecutive rides streak and tied the record of Terry Don West with 15 rides in a row. He also extended the record for consecutive PBR Built Ford Tough Series wins to five (Grand Rapids, Mich., Fayetteville, N.C., Hollywood, Fla., 2013 PBR World Finals and New York).
The competition in New York is always tight and the cream of the crop rises to the top, putting on a show that rivals anything MSG has to offer.
New York City will be one of the first stops on the 2015 PBR Built Ford Tough Series schedule. The series also will travel to Chicago, Anaheim, Calif., and Dallas on its 18-state tour, culminating with the PBR Built Ford Tough World Finals in Las Vegas on Oct. 21-25 when the 2015 PBR World Champion, the bull rider who amasses the most points during the 2015 season, will receive the coveted World Championship belt buckle and $1 million bonus.
The PBR Built Ford Tough Series is televised every week on CBS, CBS Sports Network and networks around the world. PBR Built Ford Tough Series telecasts are produced for the PBR under a multi-year agreement with David Neal Productions, a Los Angeles-based production company led by 34-time Emmy® Award winner and Peabody Award winner David Neal, who serves as executive producer.
