COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The second night of the Professional Bull Riders Built Ford Tough Rumble in the Rockies ended with No. 1 Guilherme Marchi and No. 2 Fabiano Vieira bringing the fans in Broadmoor World Arena to their feet.
Marchi won the 15/15 Bucking Battle with an 89.50-point ride aboard Wicked (J.A.R.S Bucking Bull/Gene Owen) and Vieira claimed the first $25,000 Bad Boy Mowers Bounty Bull bonus of the year with his 89.25-point ride on King Buck (BMC Bucking Bulls).
The 15/15 Bucking Battle showcased the caliber of the PBR’s best bulls as the first 13 riders hit the dirt before the 8-second mark. Then Marchi took his seat aboard Wicked, a bull he first met and failed to successfully ride three weeks ago in Billings, Mont. His 15/15 win tonight helped him stay atop the PBR world standings as he received double the points for the win.
Vieira and Marchi’s winning rides and all the action from the 15/15 Bucking Battle will air on CBS Network Television on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET.
Vieira, who also won Round 1 on Friday, continued his hot streak, as he not only pocketed $25,000 and took second place in the 15/15 Bucking Battle, but also recorded his second ride for the Built Ford Tough Rumble in the Rockies in Round 2. He leads the event with 172.50 points overall.
Stormy Wing won Round 2 with 87.75 points on Wreck It Ralph (Jeff Robinson Bucking Bulls), followed by Matt Triplett (87.25), J.W. Harris (86.25), Vieira (86) and Harve Stewart (86).
Four men enter Round 3 with two qualified rides – Vieira, Stewart, Silvano Alves and Ty Pozzobon.
Round 3 and the Built Ford Tough Championship Round of the Rumble in the Rockies takes place at 1:50 p.m. MT on Sunday when the winner of the three-day event will be determined. It will air live on CBS Sports Network at 4 p.m. ET.
