Kaique Pacheco 2018 Vegas Recap

May 8, 2018

Kaique Pacheco was a perfect 4 for 4, and once again was the only perfect rider in four rounds of Last Cowboy Standing, PBR’s most demanding Major event for the third consecutive year.  Among the highlights, Kaique marked a career best ride score of 92.75 points on PBR’s elite tour in round 3 aboard two-time World Champion Bull SweetPro’s Bruiser; he won rounds 3 and 4; he earned a whopping 940 world standings points and $160,266.67 with the win, both totals career bests.  And to top it all off, Kaique now enters the summer break in the number one spot of the PBR standings with 2,870 points.  

Pacheco last spent 4 weeks at number one in August – September of 2017.  He had fallen as low as 21st in the world after the Albuquerque event March 16 – 18th, 2018.  Since then, in six Classic events and four 15 / 15 Bucking Battles, he has ridden 19 of 24 bulls, a staggering 79% and has an average finish of 3.4!

Up Next for PBR’s Premier Series:  the 25th PBR: Unleash the Beast breaks for the summer and will return for its 18thstop in the 2018 season August 11 – 12 in Tulsa, OK and the Express Employment Professionals Classic Presented by Osage Casino at the BOK Center. 

The Real Time Pain Relief Velocity Tour and PBR Touring Pro Division will take center stage as riders will pick and choose which events to compete in.   I will continue to update you on their progress and if any milestones take place as needed.  Including a much more in depth analysis of the first 17 events out to you at some point next week.
