Cody Teel gets premier series win number two, SweetPro’s Bruiser keeps doing his SweetPro’s Bruiser thing and Montanan cowboys love their home state fans (like, a lot). Miss a moment of the action this weekend? Here’s what happened around the PBR.
On the Unleash The Beast…
For the second time this season, Cody Teel was back in the winner’s circle. He went 3-for-4 at the Billings Invitational, presented by Cooper Tires, earning 605 points towards the world standings.
Stetson Lawrence has spent some time on the bubble of the Top 35 this season, but with a Round 2 win in Billings, he’s now ranked No. 20.
Castro ended up missing two days of competition due to illness and Quaresima broke his nose, while Dakota Buttar hurt his shoulder and Mason Taylor and Ryan Dirteater suffered some bumps and bruises.
SweetPro’s Bruiser had quite the body count in Billings. First, he bucked off three-time World Champion Silvano Alves in Round 1…
…and then he bucked off 2016 World Champion Cooper Davis in the championship round. In related news, guess who won the YETI “Built For The Wild” Bull of the Event honors!
Billings was a homecoming for Montana boy Matt Triplett, who always relishes the opportunity to compete in front of his biggest supporters.
Meanwhile, Idaho native-turned-Montanan Ruger Piva used crowd support – and some self-help books – to propel him to the whistle.
Montana’s prodigal son Flint Rasmussen donned Montana State colors to celebrate being home in the land of “Bobcats, Grizzlies, Western Bulldogs and cowboys.”
Derek Kolbaba’s 2019 season has been a rollercoaster, but it’s finally on the upswing with a season’s-best performance in Billings.
Meanwhile, on the Pendleton Whisky Velocity Tour…

What’s Brennon Eldred been up to lately? Funny you should ask…
The only thing better than one Matt Merritt is five Matt Merritts!
It’s a good thing his sense of humor is still intact.
The PBR is taking a weekend off for the Easter holiday.
On April 27-28, the Unleash The Beast heads to Columbus, Ohio, for the Wrangler Long Live Cowboys Classic, presented by Cooper Tires.
The Pendleton Whisky Velocity Tour continues with the Des Moines Invitational in Des Moines, Iowa, on April 27.
