San Antonio (May 10, 2014)-Twelve of the 30 entries at the PBR at Cowboys Dancehall this weekend were international bull riders. The marquee event played host to six Australian bull riders and four riders from Mexico. Our guests from Australia did not fare so well-not a single qualified ride amongst their ranks; however, Mexican cowboy Gustavo Pedrero won the event with a thrilling 87 point ride on Currey Creek Mafia’s 7477 “Main Event” to pocket $1,836.00. Alternate entry rider, Ryan Estrada, capitalized on his opportunity and won second place with an 83.5 point ride aboard Currey Creek Mafia’s 071 “Travelin’ Man.” Estrada’s efforts earned him a nice little sum as well-$1,428.00.
This event also marked the return of bullfighter Jonathan “Taz” Talamantez. Our man “Taz” took a nasty hit at our PBR event on February 15, 2014 and sustained a broken shoulder. We spoke after the event and he said that there were some “nerves” at the beginning, but it didn’t take long for him to get back into the “groove.” We’re glad he’s back and you can check out more about him on his Facebook Fan Page –>HERE<–.
The PBR at Cowboys Dancehall is scheduled to return on June 7, 2014. Stay connected with www.2mbrand.com on Facebook and Twitter to keep yourself in the loop!
