2017 Livingston Classic PBR
Professional bull riding rodeo fans will be on the edge of their seats while watching the excitement unfold during the 2017 Livingston Classic PBR event at the Park County Fairgrounds on August 5. The Livingston Classic is considered a premier event in Montana and attracts a sell out crowd. The best 35 bull riders from around the globe will be competing in the event. Montana’s own Jess Lockwood, Matt Triplett and Nevada Newman are among the contestants riding in the Saturday night contest.
History of the PBR
The Professional Bull Riding organization was established 23 years ago when 20 bull riders dreamed of transforming the sport into an international event. In a little over two decades, the dangerous sport has taken the world by storm. More than 100 million fans watch professional bull riding competitions each year while attending live events or catching the action on network television. Since its inception, the PBR has given more than $100 million in prize money to the top competitors. Boasting winnings of more than $5.5 million during his career, Justin McBride is one of 24 cowboys earning more than one million by winning the event.
