SPOKANE, Wash. (August 8, 2022) – For the third time in league history, PBR’s (Professional Bull Riders) Pendleton Whisky Velocity Tour will buck into Spokane, Washington, returning to the Spokane Arena January 14, 2023 with the PBR Spokane Classic.
For one night only, some of the best bull riders in the world will battle the sport’s rankest bovine athletes in the ultimate showdown of man vs. beast in one of the most exciting live sporting events to witness.
In 2021, PBR’s Pendleton Whisky Velocity Tour, the sport’s premier expansion tour, returned to Spokane for the third time in league history.
As a raucous Evergreen state crowd watched on, seven-time PBR World Finals qualifier Matt Triplett (Canton, South Dakota), clinched the event win.
Triplett’s golden finish was highlighted by an event-best, round-winning 87.5-point score atop Trasher in round 1 of the night, and the PBR Veteran left Spokane ranked No. 12 in the world standings.
The Velocity Tour has made one additional trip to Spokane, debuting in the Washington state city in 2020.
At the inaugural event, Alex Santana (Chowchilla, California) rode his way into victory with a perfect 2-for-2 night inside the Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena.
The bull riding action for the 2022 PBR Spokane Classic begins at 7:00 p.m. PST on Saturday, January 14 at Spokane Arena.
On Saturday evening, all 40 competing riders will attempt one bull each in Round 1. Following the opening round, the Top 10 will then advance to the championship round where they will attempt one final bull, all in an effort to be crowned the event champion.
