FORT WORTH, Texas – As an electric crowd watched on Thursday night for the seventh iteration of the PBR (Professional Bull Riders) Stockyards Showcase, Deklan Garland (Foster, Oklahoma) dominated, sweeping both rounds of competition in going a perfect 2-for-2 to win the residency event.
Garland began the event with a bang, capturing the Round 1 win courtesy of an 87.5-point ride atop Cheddar Biscuit (Stockyards Pro Rodeo).
The Oklahoma native remained red-hot in the championship round, posting the top score when he conquered Elkins 601 (Philip Elkins) for 85.5 points.
Courtesy of the flawless effort, Garland netted a crucial 60.5 Velocity Global points.
Second was Alvaro Ariel (Itumirim, Brazil), collecting 43.5 Velocity Global points.
As the only other rider to cover both of his draws, Ariel rode Stonewall (Brickyard Bulls/Melton Bull Co./Stockyards Pro Rodeo) for 86 points in Round 1 before going the distance atop Rodeo Thug (Platinum Bull Company/Garcia Rodeo Bulls) for 85 points in the final round.
Wyatt Rogers (Hulbert, Oklahoma) parlayed an 87.5-point ride on Simp (Platinum Bull Company) in Round 1 into a third-place finish. He left Cowtown Coliseum having earned 24.5 Velocity Global points.
Fourth was Elizmar Jeremias (Anapu, Brazil), who went 1-for-2 to take home 19 Velocity Global points.
Jeremias found success in Round 1, converting atop Carlos Danger (Platinum Bull Company) for 86.5 points, but was upended in the championship round by Elkins 876 (Philip Elkins), dashing his hopes of victory.
Rounding out the Top 5 in fifth was Joao Ricardo Vieira (Itatinga, Brazil).
