PBR Canada Edmonton Classic
October 20 @ 7:00 pm
PBR (Professional Bull Riders) Canada has expanded its 2018 season in announcing that October’s Edmonton Classic will now be part of the nation’s premier bull riding series, the Monster Energy Tour.
Previously a Touring Pro Division (TPD) stop, the event at the Edmonton EXPO Centre will now offer competing bull riders twice as many points towards the world standings. As one of four events prior to the 2018 PBR World Finals, the augmented points bring added significance to the stop. The winner of the Edmonton Classic will now earn 120 points towards the world standings.
The Monster Energy Tour regularly features Canada’s elite, alongside some of the league’s top international athletes, squaring off against the rankest bucking bulls from both Canada and the United States. Fans will witness exhilarating 8-second rides and wrecks throughout the action-packed event as the PBR’s courageous riders face off against their 2,000-pound opponents.
The event will mark the final Canadian tour stop prior to the season-culminating PBR Monster Energy Canadian Finals, presented by Mac’s/Circle K and Dakota Dunes Casino, on November 23-24 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, where the 2018 PBR Canada Champion will be crowned.
The bull riding action begins at 7pm on Saturday, October 20. All riders will attempt one bull each in Round 1. The Top 10 will then advance to the Championship Round for one more out and a chance at the event title. In addition to competing for points towards the Canadian national standings, riders will also have the opportunity to earn world points in an effort to earn a berth onto the elite 25th PBR: Unleash The Beast.
