On the PBR Team Series…
KANSAS CITY, DAY 1
The Ridge Riders kicked off the weekend with a defeat of the Outlaws despite a heroic effort from Kansas City’s Marcus Mast.
The Ridge Riders have been led by Alisson de Souza in the leadoff role, and Souza credits his success to his “power drink” – milkshakes.
The Cowboys are walking around with championship swagger – on the dirt and on the pickleball court.
The Oklahoma Freedom earned their first win thanks to captain Eli Vastbinder’s walk-off ride against the previously undefeated Missouri Thunder.
KANSAS CITY, DAY 2
Saturday was a big one for the Rattlers, as they broke out with three rides to defeat the Cowboys and earn their first game win of the season.
The Rattlers won thanks to a key ride from 2002 World Champion Ednei Caminhas, who head coach Cody Lambert admits he didn’t think would be on the team.
Thunder co-head coaches Luke Snyder and Ross Coleman put Fritzlan in the closer role for the squad, and he’s been thriving under the pressure.
The Outlaws and Stampede battled to an 0-0 tie as the bulls dominated and both squads recorded losses.
KANSAS CITY, DAY 3
On Sunday, it was all about the Ridge Riders. Arizona rode 80% of its bulls against the Nashville Stampede, going 3-0 in gameplay to earn the event win and move to No. 1 in the early-season standings.
Sunday was also the highly anticipated battle for Missouri, with the Outlaws taking on the Thunder. The teams went blow-for-blow, but ultimately the Thunder emerged victorious.
Meanwhile, the Rattlers and the Gamblers faced off in the battle for Texas. Thanks to a late surge, the Gamblers came out on top.
In another back-and-forth brawl, the Cowboys and the Freedom went toe-to-toe in a clash that ultimately went in favor of the Cowboys.
