Over the last three years, 45 riders in a row have climbed atop Bushwacker, a 1,500-pound American bucking bull that holds the title of the reigning World Champion. Of these 45 Professional Bull Riders (PBR), Bushwacker has thrown all to the dirt well before eight seconds. In fact, only a dozen riders have hung on for more than four.
At the PBR's DeWalt Guaranteed Tough Invitational—an event in the Built Ford Tough Series—the top 35 bullriders in the world will try to break Bushwacker’s streak as they brace against jerks, kicks, and sneaky tickling from him as well as the nine other bulls competing. Kissimmee native Caleb Sanderson looks to boost his Top 20 standing in his home state, and two-time champ Chris Shivers prepares for retirement at the end of the season. All riders brave vicious throws and dangerous wrecks for $125,000 in prize money, which is awarded after the championship round on Saturday.
