2023 Professional Bull Riders Socal Showdown Preview:
Talking about the players, Texas Rattler started the event with an 87-point ride at Reba McEntire’s The Hammer before securing a spot in the championship round with an 88-point ride on All Shook Up.
He then took a chance and selected Black Gold as his final dance partner, an animal had never allowed any opponent to ride more than six seconds in his 13 career outs but Brito lasted the 8 to record a career-high 91-point ride and secured his first ‘Unleash The Beast buckle’. In PBR SoCal Showdown, he will match up against Ho-Pac in Round 1.
Meanwhile, Leme maintained his position at the top for the third consecutive week. He went with 1-for-2 this weekend where he rode Chiseled for 88.25 points in Round 1 before suffering an injury in Round 2 while being bucked off by Punchy Pete.
That said, he was unable to compete in the championship round. Thus, he finished 12th, extending to 662 points in the Unleash The Beast Standings, 115.5 points more than No. 2 Andrew Alvidrez.
