ROAONKE, Va. – Junio Quaresima (Meridiano, Brazil) won his first event of the year at the PBR Real Time Pain Relief Velocity Tour (RVT) Roanoke Rumble event Saturday night at the Berglund Center.

Quaresima began his weekend on Friday night with a qualified ride before he covered Player 1 (Hat Brand Rodeo) for 82.5 points in Round 2. He unfortunately was unable to get a score in the championship round but his two rides were enough to get him the victory.
