A nationally televised professional bull riding event will originate in Pueblo on May 20 and 21 from the State Fair Events Center.
Pueblo is the 19th stop on the Built Ford Tough Series, which makes 28 stops in 23 states. The season began in New York, and culminates Oct. 26-30 in Las Vegas at the richest bull riding event in the world, the PBR Built Ford Tough World Finals. At that event the 2011 PBR World Champion will be crowned and awarded the $1 million Built Ford Tough prize.
The PBR headquarters is in Pueblo on the Historical Arkansas River Walk.
