FAN-FAVORITE SERIES RETURNS FOR SECOND SEASON ON RIDE TV
PBR Ride To Glory, featuring the Pendleton Whisky Velocity Tour, rolls out second season.


FORT WORTH, Texas and PUEBLO, Colo.– RIDE TV is proud to partner with PBR (Professional Bull
Riders) on the second season of its popular series, PBR Ride To Glory, featuring the Pendleton Whisky
Velocity Tour and other exciting bull riding events. The series follows the long road to glory as cowboys
travel the country facing off against America’s fiercest bulls.


“We’re thrilled that our premier expansion tour has a great new television home that is bringing more
exposure to some of the best bull riding in the world,” said Sean Gleason, CEO, PBR. “The Pendleton
Whisky Velocity Tour is one of the best success stories in the world of sports, and within PBR, is
increasingly important to the PBR World Championship.”


RIDE TV will air an estimated 40 (forty) episodes of PBR Ride To Glory in primetime weekly for the
2020 season, with new episodes premiering every Tuesday night. The show will highlight the Pendleton
Whisky Velocity Tour and other PBR bull riding events.


“We received overwhelmingly positive feedback on our first season of PBR Ride To Glory,” said Craig
Morris, President of RIDE TV. “We always knew that there was a large audience for something as
exciting as bull riding, but we could never have anticipated just how popular this should would come to
be. We are thrilled to have a partner in PBR to continue to bring fans even more exciting bull riding in
season two.”


The series is hosted by Anthony Lucia and Colby Yates, with various sideline reporter appearances by
Janie Johnson and others. Lucia’s performance record on the rodeo scene as a trick roper and a
commentator brings a fun energy to the telecast booth, where he is joined by Yates, a five-time PBR
World Finals qualifier, who provides deep knowledge and understanding of the sport. The two built a
strong partnership through the first season of the series and look forward to seeing what new talent season
two will bring.


PBR Ride To Glory will air Tuesday nights at 9 p.m. EDT 8 p.m. CDT. Fans can watch RIDE TV on Dish
Network, channel 248 and on many cable systems across the United States and Canada. To see
