ATLANTA - The top 35 bull riders in the world are coming to Georgia this weekend -- bringing what's called the "toughest sport on dirt" to Duluth!
The Professional Bull Riders Duluth Invitational will take over the Infinite Energy Arena on Saturday, March 12 and Sunday, March 13. The event is just one stop on the 2016 Built Ford Tough Series schedule, which kicked off in January and will end in November at the World Finals in Las Vegas. This weekend, the 35 riders will compete on both Saturday and Sunday, before two-day scores are added and the top 15 return for the Built Ford Tough Championship Round. Scheduled to compete in Duluth is two-time PBR World Champion J.B. Mauney, the most popular bull rider in the PBR today.
Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken didn't want to miss out on a chance to learn more about the event -- so he convinced rider Kasey Haynes to stop by the FOX 5 studios...with a mechanical bull!
