Aussies Abroad: Fielder's Podium Finish at A&T Wraps Up 2024 UTB Season

As the 2024 UTB World Finals wrapped up this morning, it was our very own Brady Fielder who grabbed a third place finish at the WF Championship Rounds at AT&T Stadium in Dallas, TX. 

With three Australian's slated for the PBR World Finals Eliminators last weekend at Cowtown Coliseum, Qynn Andersen and Brady Fielder were both able to find the whistle during the four rounds to slate a trip to the pay window. 

Fielder was able to get 2024 World Champion Bucking Bull Man Hater (Jane Clark / Gene Owen) done in Round Four, collecting an 87.25-point score. 

Fellow Aussie Qynn Andersen was also able to gain a big scalp at the spiritual home of the PBR, with his 86.75 points on Dana White's Twisted Steel enough to earn a shot at the Ride For Redemption rounds later that week. 

With Callum Miller and Qynn Andersen's World Finals' journey unfortunately ending during the Ride For Redemption round, with Miller bucking off both of his bulls, finishing his rookie season in 42nd place and gaining his first PBR World Finals Qualification. 

It was a similar story for his fellow Queenslander Andersen, with the Koumala QLD Cowboy gaining a 56th place finish and setting himself up for a strong PBR Teams series later this year, where he will be a member of the Arizona Ridge Riders. 

Brady Fielder was the lone Australian in the Championship Rounds at AT&T Stadium across the weekend and performed outstandingly, going 2-from-4 and collecting a third place aggregate finish for the World Finals. 

After taking Hoka Hey (Blake Sharp / Chris Utz / Carey Brothers) for the required journey in Round 1 for 89.75 points and getting the Round one win, he backed it up against the next night for a mammoth 90.25-point marker on Chateau Montelena's Montana Jacket (Vella / Coleman / Ogden / Hart) to finish the event in third position.

Overall three Australian's on the biggest stage of PBR Bull Riding is a fantastic result, but look for more dominance from these three and more in the PBR Teams Series starting July 12th, as well as more Aussies smashing it on the PBRA and PBR Canada tours heading towards next years World Finals.
