Re: June re-cap as riders continue their summer break from BFTS
Kaique Pacheco returned to Brazil and has competed in three events; Divinopolis – MG, Americana – SP and the Americana – SP Iron Cowboy Qualifier. He’s ridden a combined 7 of 10 bulls, including a perfect 4 for 4 to win the Americana – SP event. Kaique has earned 60 PBR world standings points and he remains second in the standings with 2895 points; 120 points from the top spot.
Up Next: Riders have seven weeks before Tulsa and some will continue to compete on a regular basis, while others will pick and choose their events while predominantly staying close to home. Upcoming marque events include the non PBR sanctioned Calgary Stampede (qualified invite only), Velocity Tour events in Big Sky, MT and Santa Barbara, CA and Touring Pro events in Rock Springs, TX and Thief River Falls, MN. I will continue to update you as needed.
Up Next for BFTS: the PBR Express Employment Professionals Classic is the first event back from the summer break and 17th stop in the 2017 season as the PBR moves to Tulsa, OK and the BOK Center August 12th – 13th.
