ESTERO, Fla.-Two-time World Champion Bull Rider Chris Shivers stops by the WINK News studio to talk about a big event happening June 18 - 19 at Germain Arena. The action starts at 8:00 p.m. on both nights. Tickets are available at ticketmaster and at the door.
The PBR's Touring Pro Division is the new 2010 minor-league tour of the PBR, replacing the Challenger, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, and Discovery Tours. As with the previous minor-league tours, it offers up-and-coming bull riders and riders not competing on the elite Built Ford Tough Series the opportunity to compete in PBR-sanctioned events while earning money to qualify them for the BFTS and the PBR Built Ford Tough World Finals.
The new Touring Pro Division is split into three regions: the Western Region, the Central Region and the Eastern Region.
Once the season begins, the world's Top 40 bull riders have five BFTS events to secure their positions on that elite tour. After the fifth event, the bottom five riders (based on points) are dropped from the BFTS. The Top 5 Touring Pro Division riders (based on money earned) are then allowed to move into those five positions.
