The Bull Riders – Part I

PBR Denver

The Complete Story of ‘The Bull Riders’

Up until last week, I knew very little about the sport of professional bull riding. For me, it was what came on after the Tour de France on Versus. However, as an athlete, I have always been fascinated by the the bull riders themselves and what they do to train for their sport. When the PBR was coming through Denver, I decided I would set out to do a story on these guys and find out exactly what it takes in terms of training, mental preparation, equipment, and motivation to get on top of a 2000 lbs animal that really doesn’t want you there. Over the course of this week, in my story ‘The Bull Riders’, I hope to share what I found. I spent the week learning about the PBR and interviewing guys like Austin Meier, Ryan Dirteater, Francisco Morales,and Silvana Alves. I quickly discovered these are some of the nicest guys you will ever meet. They were incredibly generous with their knowledge and time. Other than a few issues with language barriers, not only was I able to get all my questions answered, I had some great conversations. I hope that over the next week, I can help shed some light on these guys, so that you too will understand what it means to be bull rider.
