The best bull riders in the world are scheduled to compete inside Enterprise Center as the PBR’s Unleash The Beast tour prepares to invade St. Louis, Missouri, from December 2 to 3, during the second event of the 2024 campaign:
ROAD HIGH: In Tucson, Arizona, last month, the 2024 Unleash The Beast season got off to a rousing start when the world’s best bull riders recorded 42 rides—more than any other event in the 2023 season. The most qualified rides in a three-round competition since New York City in 2022 (45 rides) came from Tucson. The occasion included extreme emotion all through the whole end of the week, as Caden Pack got his most memorable chief series triumph in the second-to-endure out. The Championship Round, which was previously reserved for the Top 12 riders, was extended to the 13 riders because, in Round 2, teen sensation John Crimber tied Kyler Oliver and Andrew Alvidrez’s Round 1-winning 89-point rides to win the premier series for the first time.
Just a number, age: Last month in Tucson, 2002 PBR Best on the planet Ednei Caminhas (48) and youthful phenom John Crimber (18) contended close by one another, denoting a fantastic 30-year age hole. Crimber, who was born in August 2005, was not even alive when Caminhas won the gold buckle. Even though Caminhas was unable to advance past the eighth round the previous weekend, fellow grizzled veteran Joao Ricardo Vieira, who is 39 years old, was able to advance to the final round. Vieira was one of a remarkable 21-year-old range of competitors competing for the event buckle. With veteran riders actually contending at the most elevated level and more youthful riders blasting onto the scene, the 2024 season might highlight one of the most cutthroat fields in PBR history.
The first round of this weekend’s PBR St. Louis will begin on Saturday, December 2 at 6:45 p.m. CST, and fans can watch it starting on Saturday night. The championship round and second round are scheduled to take place on Sunday, December 3, live on CBS Sports Network, at 1:45 p.m. CST.
