Born and Raised in Itatiba, Brazil Kaique moved north to Decatur, Texas in the spring of 2014 and competed on the PBR Touring Pro Division (TPD) before bursting on the scene the following year. Three TPD event wins, four PBR BlueDEF Tour event wins and three PBR Built Ford Tough Series (BFTS) wins earned Kaique 2015 Rookie of the Year honors. His second place finish in the final World Standings was the highest a rookie has ever ranked at the end of the year. Kaique followed up a superb 2015 season with an equally impressive 2016. Six PBR sanctioned event wins secured a second consecutive second place finish in the final PBR World Standings.

He’s ridden a combined 7 of 10 bulls, including a perfect 4 for 4 to win the Americana – SP event.
