The elite Cup Series, presented by Wrangler, features Canada’s top bull riders, alongside some of the PBR’s top international athletes, squaring off against the rankest bucking bulls in North America.

Following the event in Winnipeg, PBR Canada’s Cup Series, presented by Wrangler, will buck into Red Deer, Alberta, for the first time in history, traveling to the Peavey Mart Centrum on June 11.
