During three nights of heart-pounding, bone-crushing action, fans will see Oklahoma cowboy and current No. 3 in the PBR World Standings Austin Meier (Kinta, Okla.); fan favorite Ryan McConnel (Colgate, Okla.); current No. 1 in the PBR World Standings Travis Briscoe (Edgewood, N.M.); Brazilians Valdiron de Oliviera (Buritama, SP, Brazil) and Renato Nunes (Aparecida de Goinania, GO, Brazil); and last year’s winner of the Express Classic in Oklahoma City, former World Champion Ednei Caminhas (P. Alves, SP, Brazil).
The Express Classic will consist of four rounds of competition with the first three rounds featuring the Top 40 bull riders randomly matched against the PBR’s toughest bulls. The scores from the three rides will be combined, and the riders with the Top 15 scores will advance to the Built Ford Tough Championship Round after intermission on Sunday. In the end, the cowboy with the highest total score on four bulls will be declared the winner!
