FORT WORTH, Tex. – As the only rider to go a perfect 2-for-2, the Carolina Cowboys’ Ramon de Lima (Rio Branco, Brazil) was victorious Sunday afternoon inside the iconic Cowtown Coliseum in Fort Worth, Texas, winning the PBR (Professional Bull Riders) Challenger Series’ PBR Sunday at Cowtown.
In Round 1, Lima delivered the fifth-best score when he covered Brush Fire (Silent 7/Hilton Bull Co.) for 76 points.
Lima then faced Jerry Lee (Shuler Bucking Bulls) in the final round. Matching the bovine athlete jump-for-jump, the reserved Brazilian was scored 86 points, clinching the event win.
For his efforts, Lima earned 38 Challenger Series points.
Round 1 winner Paulo Rodriguez (Mato Grosso, Brazil) was second, collecting 27 Challenger Series points.
Rodriguez delivered the highest-marked ride of the event in the opening round when he conquered Justice Seeker (Cord McCoy) for 87 points. The 25-year-old, however, fell short of the win when he was bucked off by Siroucho (Dozier Cattle Co./Martinez Bucking Bulls) in 5.58 seconds.
2004 PBR World Champion Mike Lee (Decatur, Texas) and Bruin Bradshaw (Challis, Idaho) tied for third after delivering matching 83.5-point rides.
Lee covered Mr. Personality (Southern Cross Bucking Bulls) in Round 1, while Bradshaw went the distance aboard Lone Wolf (Martinez Bucking Bulls LLC) in the championship round.
Each rider left Fort Worth having earned 12 Challenger Series points.
Rounding out the Top 5 was the Nashville Stampede’s Lucas Fideles Souza (Barnstable, Massachusetts) and Ariat Texas Rattlers’ Brady Fielder (Clermont, Queensland, Australia) who tied for fifth, collecting 6 Challenger Series points each.
Souza and Fielder were both successful in Round 1, scoring 81.5 points. Souza’s 8-second effort was earned on LW 990 (Hookin’ W Ranch), while Fielder topped Gravy (Hookin’ W Ranch).
In the bull pen, Renegade (Cord McCOy/Rodosky/Lovell/Punke) bucked a cut above the rest. Crowned the Bull of the Event, Renegade was scored 45 points in Round 1 when he bucked off Braidy Randolph (Jonestown, Pennsylvania) in a quick 2.52 seconds.
