Professional Bull Riders Buck Back to Wichita January 30 for BlueDEF Tour
PUEBLO, Colo. – Get ready Wichita! The Professional Bull Riders announced that Wichita’s INTRUST Bank Arena will be the host for the BlueDEF Tour event on Saturday, January 30.
For one night only, the best up and coming bull riders in the world will be battling the fiercest bovine athletes the sport has to offer, who weigh nearly 2,000 pounds each, more than 10 times their cowboy counterparts. The thrilling 8-second rides and heart-stopping wrecks are sure to leave fans on the edge of their seats in anticipation and excitement.
The bull riding action begins at 7 p.m. CT. Tickets, ranging in price from $17 to $102, go on sale Friday, October 2 at 10 a.m. to the general public and are available at the INTRUST Bank Arena Box Office, select Dillons locations, online at www.selectaseat.com, and by phone at 855-755-SEAT.
Each rider will face one bull in Round 1 and then the Top 10 scoring riders of the night will come back for one more ride in the championship round. At the end of the competition, the rider with the highest combined score will be crowned the champion.
Wichita will be the 8th stop on the 2016 BlueDEF Tour. The tour will make stops in cities such as Bakersfield, California; Portland, Oregon; and Omaha, Nebraska this year. The BlueDEF Tour Finals will take place two weeks prior to the PBR World Finals and offer a total purse of $100,000.
The overall winner of the BDT season will be the rider who earns the most world points at the BDT level. He will receive $50,000 and qualify to compete at the PBR Built Ford Tough World Finals.
