PBR Updates

The PBR has also been affected by COVID-19. Originally, they were only going to shut down main events like Glendale PBR and run small, closed events at their home base in Pueblo, CO. Unfortunately, we got the news this morning that all events in the foreseeable future will be canceled or postponed. I have to give major kudos to Sean Gleason, CEO of PBR for not only trying to keep airing the sport but also to provide hours and jobs for the folks that depend on this for a living. Check out the latest statement from the CEO himself,

“I am proud to share that while we may not be bucking bulls yet, we are set up and ready to buck them in a private, highly controlled environment when the time is right.  We have developed a highly detailed and rigorous plan to maximize social distancing and reduce the risks of anyone contracting or spreading coronavirus as we get back to business.” – Sean Gleason

For all updates regarding COVID-19 and the PBR events, please see their official website.
