Abbotsford/Saskatoon- Set to begin its fourth season as the nation’s premier professional bull riding series, PBR (Professional Bull Riders) Canada’s Monster Energy Tour will visit eight provinces in 2019, with the schedule once again highlighted by the league’s third-ever international Major in Québec.
NOTE – The 2018 tour rolls into Abbotsford Centre, October 13. Tickets for the one-day event range in price from $25 to $80, standard fees apply, and can be purchased at the Abbotsford Centre Box Office, online at www.Ticketmaster.ca, or by phone at 1-855-985-5000.
The Monster Energy Tour features Canada’s elite bull riders, alongside some of the PBR’s top international athletes, squaring off against the rankest bucking bulls in North America. Fans will witness exhilarating 8-second rides and wrecks throughout the action-packed event as the PBR’s courageous riders face off against their 2,000-pound, animal-athlete opponents.
Notably, the 2019 Monster Energy Tour will feature the most events in the series’ four-year history.
PBR (Professional Bull Riders), which has events in five countries, has competed in Canada since 1996 where it operates two tours.
