After the first two stops on the 2016 Built Ford Tough Series Tour it is safe to say that the cowobys from Brazil are planning on taking over and bringing the PBR World Championship Title back to their country. During the first stop in Chicago it was non other than Wallace Vieira de Oliveira that claimed victory heading into last weekend’s New York City Event. Once the Madison Square Garens Arena was turned into a bull riding venue it was once again a Brazilian by the name of Paulo Lima that outlasted the other 34 top bull riders in the world to take home the event championship title.
Paulo Lima has been out of competition for some time but made a statement by coming back and going a perfect 4-for-4 and claim over $129,000 for his first “major” win! Along with the huge payday that Lima received for winning the event he also gained some sought after championship points which were increased due to this stop being labeled a “major” event for 2016. With his win he catapulted himself to the number one position heading into the Oklahoma City event this weekend.

We would not be able to bring you all the live coverage that we will be undertaking this year as a new dedicated team without some great folks that will keep up going throughout the 2016 rodeo season. We would like to thank one of those organizations right now that are working hand in hand with our team at AVID Visual Imagery. Our friends from “Run Ranger Run” have been very interested in joining our team to keep us on the road throughout the 2016 season and will be featured for the first time during our time in Okalhoma City this next weekend!
The “Run Ranger Run” organization is, just like our team, a group of dedicated United States military veterans that are comprised of many Army Ranger Special Forces. To learn about this fantastic veteran organization and what they do for our veterans that come back from combat with both physical and mental disabilities I would encourage you to check them out throughout their social media platforms and website to see what you can do to help our men and women coming back from war.
