PBR: REAL TIME PAIN RELIEF VELOCITY TOUR
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 2017
The PBR’s (Professional Bull Riders) Real Time Pain Relief Velocity Tour will bring its thrilling, adrenaline-filled, edge-of-your seat excitement to the Rabobank Arena on November 18, 2017. It will be the Velocity Tour’s third trip to Bakersfield, after successful events in 2014 and 2015.
For one-night only, some of the best bull riders in the world will battle the sport’s toughest bovine athletes. The thrilling 8-second rides and heart-stopping wrecks make the PBR’s Velocity Tour one of the most exciting live sporting events to see.
Each rider will face one bull in Round 1 with the Top 10 scoring riders of the night moving on to 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. Derek Kolbaba, the current No. 3 rider in the world standings, won the 2015 Bakersfield event on his way to BFTS stardom.
Bakersfield will be the 2nd stop on the 2018 Velocity Tour, which spans the country in cities including Hampton, Virginia; Portland, Oregon; Dayton, Ohio; Bangor, Maine and Birmingham, Alabama.
