Swearingen rebounds in St. Louis, Pacheco turns things around and more

Daylon Swearingen won in St. Louis, which is made all the more remarkable when you realize what happened to him the weekend before. Plus, Kaique Pacheco returned in a big way, the injury bug bit, and more. Miss a moment of the action this weekend? Here’s what happened around the PBR.


In Oklahoma City last weekend, Daylon Swearingen got wrecked and stepped on, his helmet shattering, and he had to be carried out on a backboard.

In St. Louis this weekend, he got out to an early lead by winning Round 1

…and went on to win the whole damn event. Now that’s what we call a rebound!

It’s been a rough season so far for 2018 World Champion Kaique Pacheco, but the Ice Man returned from a shoulder injury to win Round 2 and improve to No. 51 in the world.

Speaking of injuries, No. 3 Kyler Oliver and No. 4 Stetson Lawrence both got a little beat up in St. Louis but plan to be in action in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

Derek Kolbaba had his ankle crushed in the practice pen last week, but he stepped up for a fifth-place finish in Round 1.

However, two-time World Champion Jess Lockwood will be out 6-8 weeks.

Who’s one of the top leaders in the PBR in qualified rides and riding percentage? None other than 2021 Rookie of the Year Eli Vastbinder.

The 2022 PBR Global Cup USA is fast approaching, and some young Brazilian riders are proving that their home nation could field two contending teams.
