Professional Bull Riders

  • Overview

     The PBR’s (Professional Bull Riders) Real Time Pain Relief Velocity Tour will bring its thrilling, adrenaline-filled, edge-of-your seat excitement to Wells Fargo Arena for a one night event on April 21. It will be the second time that the Velocity Tour has stopped in Des Moines. Last year’s Des Moines Chute Out was won by Jesse Tillman.

    For one huge night, 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 moving on to the championship round. At the end of the competition, the rider with the highest combined score will be crowned the champion.

    Des Moines will be the 22nd stop on the 2018 Velocity Tour, which spans the country in cities including Casper, Wyoming; Portland, Oregon; Dayton, Ohio; Bangor, Maine and Oakland, California.

    The 2018 Real Time Pain Relief Velocity Tour will culminate with the Velocity Tour Finals, leading into the PBR’s 2018 World Finals. The winner of the Velocity Tour Finals, the second- and third-place finishers, and the top international performer, along with the 2018 Velocity Tour Champion, will each qualify to compete at the PBR World Finals.
