Watch the BFTS from Sacramento
SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The world’s premiere bull riding organization, the Professional Bull Riders (PBR), will once again bring the greatest bull riders and top bulls in the world to the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento on Jan. 30-31, 2015, for the Sacramento Invitational, part of the PBR’s Built Ford Tough Series.
The competition will begin at 8 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 30, and at 6:50 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 31. Tickets start at $15 and can be purchased at the Sleep Train Arena box office, www.Ticketmaster.com, and at (800) 745-3000. For more information visit www.pbr.com.
For the 11th consecutive year and 12th year overall, fans will experience non-stop action filled with electrifying 8-second rides and nerve-racking wrecks that will captivate their attention as they watch 150-pound cowboys risk it all against their opponents who are more than 10 times their size, weighing in at roughly 2,000 pounds.
Last year, California fans watched as Fabiano Vieira went 3-for-3 against his bovine opponents to win his second of three events for the season. In 2015, Vieira will be back in River City, along with three-time defending PBR World Champion Silvano Alves (2011, 2012, 2014), 2014 Rookie of the Year J.W. Harris as well as fan favorites Ryan Dirteater and L.J. Jenkins.
Four other former PBR World Champions are also scheduled to ride in Sacramento, including 2013 World Champion J.B. Mauney, Renato Nunes, (2010), Guilherme Marchi (2008) and Mike Lee (2004).
