Friday, February 8 and Saturday, February 9, 2014 The Professional Bull Riders returns to the DCU Center with an international field of bull riders that will be competing at the PBR Touring Pro Division event on Feb. 8-9 for two days of exciting bull riding action. Athletes from across the United States will be competing with cowboys from Canada, Mexico, Guatemala, Brazil and Australia for the event championship. Headlining the competition is five-time PBR Built Ford Tough World Finals qualifier Harve Stewart (Stephenville, Texas). 2013 PBR Australia Rookie of the Year Jesse Van Nek of (Rockhampton, Australia) will be leading a contingent of 10 international cowboys also competing in the event. The bull riders will be facing some of the best bulls in the world, including stock from four-time PBR Stock Contractor of the Year Jeff Robinson. Robinson will be bringing many of his top bulls, including The Clones. Mr. Slim, Slim's Ghost, I'm Back, and Another One are genetic replications of the 1997 PBR World Champion Bucking Bull Panhandle Slim and have been competing in the PBR since 2009. They are regularly selected to appear at PBR Built Ford Tough Series events across the country and the World Finals in Las Vegas. This year's event will feature a special opportunity for bull riding fans to get the ultimate fan experience. Select premium seats will include the PBR Corral Party pass where fans will have the opportunity to step onto the "World's Toughest Playing Field" and kick up dirt before all the action starts. Fans that purchase the PBR Corral Party pass will get a pre-event "Meet & Greet" with some of the best bull riders in the world. Fans will be able to receive autographs, participate in photo opportunities, learn about a bull rider's gear and get an up-close look at PBR bulls. The Touring Pro Division provides an opportunity for riders to compete in PBR-sanctioned events to earn points towards qualifying for the nationally-televised Built Ford Tough Series (BFTS), which is comprised of the Top 35 bull riders in the world. The Touring Pro Division is part of the PBR's international tour schedule and there's nothing minor-league about it. These are young men dreaming of the big time. To make it, they have to get past some of the most famous bucking bulls in the sport and superstar veterans looking to stand in their way. The event starts at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 8, and at 1 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 9.
