Team Brazil collectively went 11 for 18 and won for the second consecutive time defending their Global Cup win in Sydney AUS in June 2018. Team USA – Eagles went 10 of 18 and fell 72 points shy (or one average bull score) to finish second. The remaining teams rounded out the five country six team format as follows: Team USA – Wolves went 8 for 18, Team Australia was 6 for 18, Team Mexico went 4 for 18 and Team Canada 3 for 18. There were no PBR world standings points awarded during the event. Riders earned money, but not points.
Team USA – Eagles captain Cooper Davis returned to competition and went 3 for 4 earning the individual aggregate title besting all the other riders in total bull score. This is the second Global Cup event in a row that Cooper has been the top performer for Team USA. In his three Global Cup events, Davis is a combined 8 for 11. He’s currently 17th in the PBR world standings with 300 points.
Jess Lockwood went 0 for 1 this weekend and unfortunately in that one attempt Saturday night Jess was injured. He broke his left collarbone early in the ride when the bull lunged forward in his second jump out of the chutes and pulled Jess into its horn, causing the fracture. At this time, it is unclear if surgery is needed, which will determine how long Jess will be sidelined. For some perspective he missed seven (7) events during his 2017 PBR championship winning season. I will continue to update you as soon as I know more information. Lockwood is currently number one in the PBR world standings with a 967-point lead on number two.
Derek Kolbaba was 0/3
