First of all, I want to say how fantastic this season has been. The Brazilian riders that have come north to ride in the PBR Ford Tough season have just been a collective powerhouse. But, you can't fault American riders like J.B. Mauney, Ryan McConnell or the man in contention for the world title this year, Austin Meier, who in round four spent a phenomenal five seconds or so hanging on the side of his bull to get a score, when he could have just as easily let go of the rope - the man has determination to spare.
But in the end, Brazilian rider, Renato Nunez, pulled it out for the big win. He'll join his fellow Brazilian, Guilherme Marchi - who is my personal favorite rider, and men like Justin McBride, Chris Shivers and Mike Lee - in securing his World Championship title.
Congratulations to Renato.
