IN A SPORT where there are no time outs, no towels to throw in and there is only one man, one bull and eight desperate seconds that will keep you on the edge of your seat from the first ride of the night right through to the last, welcome to the world of the PBR.

Saturday will see the PBR return to the Wide Bay region.

PBR general manager Glen Young said it had been a while since they visited this area with the PBR, however it was always good to see the tour return to this great location.

"Both bulls and riders are in fine form going into this event being right in the middle of our season," he said.

With $10,000 in posted prize-money and many of the nation's most extreme bucking bulls, the August 17th event at Jack Norgate Oval, Burnett Heads will attract the most accomplished bull riders from around the nation as they strive to qualify for the 2019 $100,000 PBR Grand Finals in Townsville.

"Winning a PBR event is by no means easy, to win one event in a season is a huge accomplishment at this level and to win more than one in a season is truly showing your dominance in this sport and putting you in contention for an Australian title.

"We have compiled some of the best bucking bulls in the state for this particular event," said Young.

"Being so centrally located to our bull breeders will mean fans are going to get to witness many of the sports all-star bucking bulls from several leading bull breeding including the likes of Dunne and Wallace Bucking Bulls."

Fans can expect the unexpected with thrilling eight-second rides and heart-stopping wrecks providing an unforgettable experience.

It's the toughest sport on dirt and one huge night of ultimate entertainment that the whole family will enjoy. …
