After a 41 day hiatus, the PBR (Professional Bull Riders) returned to competition tonight at Lazy E Arena in Oklahoma in an event closed to fans and observing strict health protocols.
Forty one of the world’s best bull riders and the rankest bucking bulls on the planet took to the dirt for the eleventh elite Unleash The Beast event of the season – the PBR Las Vegas Invitational, presented by Union Home Mortgage.
Two sophomore riders on the elite series stood tallest while the world’s top rider increased his lead in the championship chase.

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.
