RAMON DE LIMA WINS 2018 IRON COWBOY

In front of a record-setting crowd at AT&T Stadium, Ramon de Lima (Sao Paulo, Brazil) won the 2018 WinStar World Casino and Resort Iron Cowboy, powered by Kawasaki, the second Major of the 25thPBR: Unleash The Beast season.
More than 46,000 fans packed the largest stadium in the NFL, making the 2018 Iron Cowboy the largest single-day event in PBR history.
The win marks the 27-year-old Brazilian’s first Major victory of his career. He is the first rider this season to claim multiple event titles following his victory at January’s elite series stop in Sacramento.
Lima began the evening with an 83-point trip aboard Yoga (Currey Creek Bucking Bulls & Cattle Co.) in Round 1 as one of 13 riders to record an 8-second effort.
In the event’s second round, Lima covered After Midnight (01 Cattle Co./Hodges/Shuler/SM Whitehead) for 88 points, joining fellow Brazilian Alex Marcilio (Macaubal, Brazil) as the only two riders to advance to Round 3.
Lima’s ride was the first aboard the bovine athlete in his 16 outs to date. After Midnight made his elite series debut in April 2016 in Little Rock, Arkansas.
After both Brazilians bucked off their Round 3 draws, Lima earned the title of 2018 Iron Cowboy after covering Wild Goose (D&H Cattle Co./Buck Cattle Co.) for 86 points in Round 4.
Lima earned $127,350 and 830 points for the win, propelling him to the top of the world standings for the first time in his career. After beginning the event No. 4 in the world, he now leads No. 2 Dener Barbosa by 220 points.
Runner-up to Lima, Marcilio collected a paycheck for $42,100, along with 185 world points to elevate from No. 42 to No. 24 in the world standings.
In Round 1, the 29-year-old rode Chocolate Shake (D&H Cattle Co.) for 87.25 points, before winning Round 2 with an 88.75-point ride on Night Sweats (Plummer/Hart Cattle Co.).
Marcilio’s event came to an end after he bucked off both his third and fourth round draws, Carrot Top (Owens/Wyatt) and Gangster’s Wildside (Major League Bucking Bulls), respectively.  
Third went to Luciano de Castro (Guzolandia, Brazil) who won the event’s opening round compliments of his Round 1-winning, 88.25-point trip aboard Swamp Wreck (Phenom Genetics).
The 21-year-old, however, was unable to compete past Round 1 after sustaining a concussion during his dismount.
He leaves Texas with $10,600 and 125 world points.
Two-time PBR World Champion J.B. Mauney (Statesville, North Carolina) finished fourth in his third event back on the elite tour after straining his groin following the season-launch event in New York City.
Mauney rode Shelly’s Gangster (Dakota Rodeo/Chad Berger/Clay Struve) for 87.75 points in Round 1, but was only able to last 2.05 seconds on Canadian Mist (Hart Cattle Co.) in the Round 2.
Climbing five spots in the world rankings from No. 30 to No. 25, Mauney netted $4,100 and 75 world points for his first Top-5 finish on the elite tour this season.
Rounding out the Top 5, and earning $2,100 and 50 world points, was 2012 PRCA Champion Cody Teel (Kountze, Texas).
Teel covered Roll of the Dice (Halpain Bucking Bulls) for 86.25 points in Round 1, and narrowly missed out on advancing past Round 2, dispatched by Pearl Harbor (Dakota Rodeo/Chad Berger/Clay Struve/H&C Bucking Bulls) in 6.16 seconds.
SweetPro’s Bruiser (D&H Cattle Co./Buck Cattle Co.) and Pearl Harbor shared this weekend’s YETI “Built for the Wild” Bull of the Event title after both recorded matching 46-point bull scores in Round 2.
2017 YETI World Champion Bull Bruiser earned his first high-marked bull of the event honor for 2018 for bucking off Emilio Resende (Santa Helena do Goias, Brazil) in 5.39 seconds, while Pearl Harbor’s fourth, and second consecutive win, came for his matchup against Teel.
The Top 35 bull riders in the world will now head to North Little Rock, Arkansas, and Verizon Arena for the Bad Boy Mowdown. The event will be on Friday, March 2 at 7:45 p.m. CT and Saturday, March 3 at 6:45 p.m. CT.   
In other PBR action this weekend, Juan Carlos Contreras (Huichapan, Mexico) won the first Real Time Pain Relief Velocity Tour (RVT) event of his career on Saturday night during the Worcester Rumble at the DCU Center.
Contreras rode Jungle Fire (Torres Brothers Bucking Bulls LLC) for 85.5 points in Round 1 before covering Otis (Mike Miller Bucking Bulls) in the championship round for 86.5 points. He earned $6,950 and 120 points towards the world standings.
Winners of each RVT event in 2018 will be guaranteed at least one opportunity to compete at a regular-season PBR 25th: Unleash The Beast event. Thanks to his victory in Worcester, Massachusetts, Contreras earned an invitation to The Ak-Chin Invitational Presented by Cooper Tires in Glendale, Arizona March 23-24.
