Kaique Pacheco went 2 for 3 this weekend placing 5th in rounds 1 and 2. He was unable to convert in the event championship round and earned 80 world points ending the regular season the number one bull rider in the world with 5,326.66 points. His lead over second place is now 1,710 points.
Kaique has led the world standings for 10 weeks (week 17 through week 26), longer than any other rider this year. He has the most event wins with 8; three 15 / 15 bucking battles (New York City, Sacramento, Billings) and five regular season events (Tacoma, Las Vegas, Springfield, Fairfax, Milwaukee). He ranks second in round wins with 10, he has ridden the most bulls in the Premier series with 40, and across all series with 53.
Up Next for PBR’s Premier Series: Nampa was the last regular season event for the 2018 25th PBR: Unleash the Beast season. Athletes have a couple of opportunities to earn more world points prior to world finals; Touring Pro events in Jackson, TN Oct. 26 – 27th and Goliad, TX Nov. 3rd and a Velocity Tour event in Colorado Springs, CO Oct. 26 – 27th and the Velocity Tour Finals Nov. 2 – 3rd. Currently, I’m not sure what the commitments will be for Prodigal Sports Group riders. I will update you before finals with your sponsored riders’ standings prior to finals.
