For two nights only, some of the best bull riders in the world will battle the sport’s rankest 
bulls bred to buck in the ultimate showdown of man vs. beast in a series showcasing one 
of the most exciting live sporting events to witness.

It is just the second time in PBR history that the best bull riders in the world have headed 
to Rochester. The first stop on the Touring Pro Division in 2004 was won by Fred 
Boettcher (Tomah, Wisconsin), who went a perfect 2-for-2.

The 2023 Challenger Series Championship was won by Alan de Souza (Taubate, Brazil) 
who edged teenage phenom and runner-up John Crimber (Decatur, Texas) by a mere 
27.33 points. Souza’s season was headlined by a torrid six event victories and an 
accompanying 13 Top-10 finishes.

The bull riding action for PBR Rochester begins at 8:00 p.m. CDT on Friday, August 23, 
and concludes with Round 2 and the Championship Round beginning at 7:00 p.m. CDT on 
Saturday, August 24.

General Onsale begins Thursday, May 30, 2024 at 10:00 am
