It is the first visit to Ford Field for the premier bull riding organization and it features the world’s highest-paid best bull riders competing against the toughest bucking bulls on the planet.
[photogallerylink id=57082 align=right]Riders scheduled to compete in Detroit include 2011 World Champion and 2010 Rookie of the Year Silvano Alves, who has earned almost $1.8 million in his first 18 months competing in the BFTS, and Luke Snyder, who won the inaugural Last Cowboy Standing in front of a sellout crowd in Las Vegas in 2011, earning $216,500 – the highest one-day payout of the season, and the second-highest in history.
The PBR Built Ford Tough Series event will be a progressive-elimination format with all of the Top 35 bull riders in the world riding a bull in Round 1. Riders who reach 8 seconds in Round 1 will advance to the next round, where they will each ride another bull. The elimination format continues until there is only one cowboy left.
Tickets begin at $15, and include the concert at 8 p.m. and the PBR Built Ford Tough Series event at 9 p.m. Tickets are on sale at the Ford Field box office, www.ticketmaster.com and by telephone at (800) 745-3000. The PBR and Ford are offering a limited number of Built Ford Tough All aXXess passes for $200. In addition to providing the best seats for the bull riding, the passes allow the bearer to go onto the dirt before the event, allowing them to meet PBR riders to get autographs and photographs.
