PBR (Professional Bull Riders) has announced the PBR Monster Energy Tour – a new, national bull riding series visiting six Canadian provinces, will open the 2017 season in Quebec City at the Videotron Center on June 2 and 3, 2017. Following these two hours of confrontation between the cowboys and the bulls, a country rock show will be presented for fans who want to continue their evening. More details to come about this festive event.
While PBR has hosted events in Canada since 1996, the new tour hits the road for its second season as a unified competitive series traveling across the country. After beginning in Quebec City, the national series moves on to visit Ottawa on June 9; Toronto, June 24; Calgary, September 23; Winnipeg, October 6; Abbotsford, October 14; and Saskatoon, October 20 and 21, where a PBR Canadian champion will be crowned.
The PBR Monster Energy Tour will award a total purse of $100,000 in prize money for the Quebec City Event, a PBR Major which will feature top Canadian riders and 10 international invites from the elite Built Ford Tough Series. PBR Majors award riders with additional prize money and championship points. Points earned at all PBR Monster Energy Tour events count toward qualifying for the prestigious PBR Built Ford Tough Series and PBR World Finals in Las Vegas.
The PBR Monster Energy Tour will be showcased on TSN/RDS, including a post-season highlights show. Fans should check local listings for broadcast event dates and times.
“Quebec is a top destination for international sports and a hotbed for action sports,” said Sean Gleason, CEO, PBR. “As PBR continues to grow on a global scale, we will continue to invest in expanding the PBR Monster Energy Tour in Canada. We’re thrilled to start the season in Quebec in a beautiful venue hosting a two-day event that will include the top bull riders in the world.”
