About the PBR Challenger Series:
PBR Challenger Series, a competition series that launched in May 2022, consists of more than 60 events traveling to 27 states across the United States, running in conjunction with the PBR Team Series – an eight-team league competing in five-on-five bull riding games from July to late October 2023. The PBR Challenger Series, the sport’s only standalone series from June to October, provides additional competitive opportunities to bull riders who are both affiliated and unaffiliated with a PBR Team Series Team. Select Challenger Series events will be carried on RidePass on Pluto TV. At the conclusion of the PBR Challenger Series regular season, the Top 40 riders in the Series standings will qualify for the Challenger Championship, which will be held on October 19, at the Las Vegas at South Point Hotel, Casino & Spa in conjunction with the PBR Team Finals (October 20-22). A select number of top-finishing riders in the final Challenger Series standings will earn automatic positions in 2024 Unleash The Beast season events.
