PBR Australia’s tour is pitching top riders squaring off against 900kg bucking bulls in eight-second rides and wrecks.

In 2020, the Monster Energy Tour not only debuted in Caboolture, but returned to competition there after 203 days following the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Perfect 2-for-2

Jack McArthur, from Cooyar, won the opening edition of the PBR Caboolture Invitational, with young gun Kelsey Pavlou (Victoria) taking the second event.

McArthur had his first PBR Australia victory with a perfect 2-for-2 performance, highlighted by the high-marked ride of his career, an 87.5-point effort on Annihilation.

Also recording his first PBR Australia event win in Caboolture, Pavlou’s golden finish was also headlined by a high-marked ride covering Black Rat for 83.5 points in Round 1.

Top touring pros

Before the country’s top tour came last year, Caboolture had hosted PBR Australia for Pro Touring Division events in 2013-14. PBR world champion Silvano Alves won in 2014.

Action begins at 7pm on August 14 at QSEC. After all riders have one bull in Round 1, the Top 10 go to the championship round for one more out and a chance at the title.
