Kaique Pacheco returned to the PBR UTB tour this past weekend and went 1 for 3, the lone highlight a third place finish in round one with a bull score high enough to qualify for the event championship round. Kaique earned 53 world standings points for his eighth place finish in the event and after sitting out the first five events, he begins his title defense in 83rd place in the PBR world standings. Something to think about leading up to this week’s Iron Cowboy PBR Major event, the reigning PBR World Champion owns the PBR record with four PBR Major victories. He has won three consecutive Last Cowboy Standing titles and one Music City Knockout championship.
Up Next for PBR’s Unleash the Beast tour: The PBR UTB tour heads west to Los Angeles, CA for the 2019 Iron Cowboy at Staples Center. The second of four PBR Major events in the season comes with a unique format compared to standard Unleash the Beast events. Iron Cowboy is a minimum of two rounds and a maximum of five. At least 25 riders will advance to Round 2, with any draw spots being filled by the current world standings heading into Iron Cowboy if there are less than 25 rides in Round 1. If all riders buck off in Rounds 2, 3 or 4, then all riders that attempted a bull advance to the next round.
If there is more than one ride in the final round (Round 5), then the Iron Cowboy will be the rider with the highest ride score in Round 5. If there are no rides in Round 5, then the Iron Cowboy will be the rider with the most round points that had competed in Round 5.
