It was a breathtaking battle as bull riders like Silvano Alves, Valdiron de Oliveira, L.J. Jenkins, Emilo Resende, JB Mauney and many more matched up against the rankest bulls like Asteroid, Smackdown, Mick E Mouse and Rango. Of course, don’t count out Bushwacker, as this ultimate bucking beast has bucked off more professional bull riders in the entire sport with a total of 56 outs with only 1 current ride claims to hold #1st place amongst all the rank bulls in the 2014 World Standings.
As the action unfolded, Flint Rasmussen, the exclusive entertainer of the (PBR) Professional Bull Riders and host of “Outside the Barrel with Flint Rasmussen,” did what he does best as he amused the enlivened US Airways crowd. But don’t count Rasmussen out, he is a true athlete and one of the funniest entertainers in the business. Flint Rasmussen always has original acts and has more energy than a fusion reaction. Before arriving to Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix, Rasmussen posted on his Facebook page:

The competition was thick, but one bull rider separated himself from the rest as he displayed some of the most unbelievable 8 second rides on Saturday night and Sunday morning. Who is this PBR bull rider? Well he is the won theĀ 2013 PBR World Finals in Las Vegas, the one and only, JB Mauney. The defendingĀ World Champion Bull Rider proved himself once again walking away with the victory at US Airways in Phoenix.
