In partnership with US Border Patrol, PBR had hosted the latest event of UTB. Bull riding is one such contest in which the spectators feel the most adrenaline rush. When the riders try to tame the bulls, they’re at the utmost risk to lose it. In the same vein, when João Ricardo Vieira almost washed his hands of his life, a legend jumped to the rescue.
