At one of the most significant events in PBR (Professional Bull Riders) history, a veteran cowboy from Brazil put on a bull riding clinic to win the event marking the return of live professional sports in North America.
Bucking in an eerily empty arena closed to the public in observation of strict health protocols, Fabiano Vieira (Perola, Brazil) was the lone rider to deliver a flawless 3-for-3 performance. The 37-year-old Brazilian took the event buckle, $11,000 and 104 world points awarded at the Unleash The Beast PBR Las Vegas Invitational, presented by Union Home Mortgage, at the iconic Lazy E Arena.

The last two months have been quite the whirlwind for world leader Jose Vitor Leme.
Leme had begun the 2020 season on an absolute tear, which is an understatement in many ways, by winning three of the first nine Unleash The Beast events and taking home a seven round wins.
The 23-year-old had ridden 20 of his first 27 bulls, was converting at a blistering 74.07% pace, and had quickly assured everyone that there would be no hangover following a heartbreaking defeat to two-time World Champion Jess Lockwood at the 2019 PBR World Finals through the first two months of the season.
