“They’re really well represented this year. We have riders from the United States, from Mexico, from Australia, from Canada. With the shortened PBR season, everybody’s there trying their best and they’re all gunning for the same thing. And as to make PBR World Finals, and you’re gonna see a lot of guys and a lot of bulls that are in that spot where they’re right on the cusp of making it. So you’re gonna see a lot of people trying their guts out. Giving everything that happened, there’s no way you can be on the back of anything like that. How do you prepare mentally for something like this? You know, it’s, it’s something that you you just gotta surround yourself with, it.
