On the Unleash The Beast…
As the lone rider to go 3-for-3 at the PBR Bad Boy Mowers Mowdown in Little Rock, Arkansas, Rafael Henrique dos Santos picked up the first premier series win of his career and improved to No. 9 in the world standings.
Boudreaux Campbell also notched a career-first victory, winning his first 15/15 Bucking Battle when he teamed with Woopaa for the third time for 93.75 points. The 5-year-old bovine was marked 46 points and continues to hold the top spot in the YETI World Champion Bull standings with a 46.59-point average.
Juuuuust in case you haven’t noticed, Woopaa is currently in the midst of the best season for a bull since three-time World Champion Bull Bushwacker earned his second title in 2013.
Claudio Montanha Jr. also had a big weekend in Little Rock, as he won Round 1 on the back of his first 90-point ride since April of 2018.
The Rookie of the Year race is currently in the hands of Chase Dougherty, who extended his lead on No. 2 rookie Colten Fritzlan to 71 points after a third-place finish in Round 1.
On the injury front, Keyshawn Whitehorse managed to triumph with a sprained right MCL, possible broken foot and head laceration, while Dalton Kasel, Ezekiel Mitchell and Derek Kolbaba also found themselves under the care of the sports medicine team.
Meanwhile, on the Pendleton Whisky Velocity Tour…
Eli Vastbinder and Amadeu Campos Silva tied for the Round 1 victory in Springfield, Massachusetts…
…but it was Conner Halverson clinching his second Pendleton Whisky Velocity Tour victory of the season with the high-marked ride of the event.
