Big comp for global bull rid­ing

The Western Star - - RURAL WEEKLY -

THE Global Cup is The Ashes of global bull rid­ing – pit­ting the world’s premier bull rid­ing na­tions, Aus­tralia, Brazil, Canada, Mex­ico and the US, against each other in a bat­tle for the ti­tle of Tough­est Na­tion on Dirt.

With a unique com­pe­ti­tion for­mat, the Global Cup is the largest team event that global bull rid­ing has ever seen.

The event stops in each par­tic­i­pat­ing coun­try, of­fer­ing up record purses, with each na­tional team fight­ing to retain the host coun­try’s horn from the PBR Global Cup tro­phy.

The 54kg Global Cup tro­phy con­sists of five in­di­vid­ual horns, each de­signed in the coun­try’s na­tional colours and serv­ing as a ves­sel for their home dirt.

In or­der to com­plete the tro­phy and pro­claim world dom­i­nance, one team must win and pos­sess each re­spec­tive coun­try’s horn – but the big­gest pri­or­ity for each team is se­cur­ing a home­town win to retain their na­tion’s soil and piece of the cup.

In each city, the host na­tion re­ceives a home-turf ad­van­tage, field­ing a 14-rider team, dou­ble the size of the vis­it­ing na­tions’ teams.

The event will be hosted in Syd­ney on June 9-10.
