#InCaseYouMissedIt: Divino Gets It Done, Injuries Take Their Toll and More

By: Darci Miller

“Divino” means “divine” in Portuguese, and Lucas Divino lived up to his name in Kansas City. Meanwhile, the Unleash The Beast cutline claimed its victims, and the Top 2 in the world standings were bitten by the injury bug. Miss a moment of the action this weekend? Here’s what happened around the PBR.

On the Unleash The Beast…

Lucas Divino may be riding through a broken hand, but he had a career weekend in Kansas City as he earned his first Unleash The Beast event win.

In another career first, Colten Jesse won his first 15/15 Bucking Battle to move to No. 7 in the world standings.

World No. 2 Jess Lockwood won Round 1 – and the championship round – to intensify the world title race and gain ground on world No. 1 Jose Vitor Leme.

Speaking of Leme and Lockwood, both world title contenders left the 15/15 Bucking Battle with injury concerns

…and both will be going for further examination, and are questionable for Little Rock.

Eduardo Aparecido is getting back in shape and back to form, and his new workout regimen paid off with a second-place finish in Kansas City.

Ezekiel Mitchell was facing the UTB cutline, but a third-place finish in Round 1 got him back within the Top 30 in the world.

Stetson Lawrence, Alisson de Souza and Luciano de Castro, however, were not so lucky, falling victim to the cutline.

At the WCRA Royal City Roundup…

Jose Vitor Leme may not have won $50,000, but he won the bull riding at the Royal City Roundup to gain 37 points towards the world standings.

Across nine disciplines, the WCRA awarded upwards of $1 million to the champions in Kansas City.

Meanwhile, on the Pendleton Whisky Velocity Tour…

Alex Cerqueira earned the first Velocity Tour win of his career with his 2-for-2 performance in Charleston.
