SAN ANTONIO -- The Professional Bull Riders (PBR) have announced that the Top 35 bull riders in the world will compete against the best bucking bulls on the planet when the PBR Built Ford Tough Series returns to the AT&T Center for the San Antonio Invitational presented by Cooper Tires on Friday and Saturday, Aug. 17-18.

Tickets begin at $10 and are on sale at the AT&T Center box office,, and by telephone at 1-800-745-3000. Bull riding begins at 8 p.m. on Friday, and at 7 p.m. on Saturday.

Leading the way into San Antonio are home-state favorites Douglas Duncan from Alvin, 2004 PBR World Champion Mike Lee from Decatur, Harve Stewart from Stephenville, and Stormy Wing from Dalhart.

Fans will witness thrilling 8-second rides and jaw-dropping wrecks throughout the adrenaline-soaked performance as the PBR’s insanely brave cowboys risk it all against monstrous animal athletes that can weigh as much as 2,000 pounds.

It will be the last chance for fans in Texas to watch two-time PBR World Champion Chris Shivers, who announced in February that he would retire at the end of the season. The 33-year-old, who won the PBR World Championship in 2000 and 2003, was the first rider in PBR history to reach $1 million, $2 million, and $3 million, and he currently ranks third in career earnings with more than $3.9 million.

Competing for more than $125,000 in total prize money, each of the Top 35 riders in the world will ride on Friday and Saturday. Following Round 1 on Friday, the riders with the 10 highest cumulative scores will each compete with one more bull. Following Round 3 on Saturday, the riders with the 10 highest cumulative scores will advance to the Built Ford Tough Championship Round, where they will each compete with one more bull. The overall event winner will be the rider with the highest combined score from all four rounds, earning $30,000 for first place.
