Another weekend down of PBR Action across the world and with plenty of Australian natives appearing in different PBR tours, get up to date with how they all went in this week's addition of Aussies Abroad. 

Unleash The Beast Los Angles

Callum Miller
and Brady Fielder both turned out in the city of Angles at Arena for the 12th event of the premier individual series of Professional Bull Riders in 2024 this past weekend. 

Heading into Miller's 4th UTB event of the season, the Warwick cowboy was sitting on a three out buckoff streak stretching back to his 3-from-4 effort the last time the UTB tour was in California in Sacramento last month. 

Mighty Mike (Braun Bucking Bulls) was drawn to face Callum in Round 1 and the bovine got the better of the battle on Friday evening, getting the touch in 5.72 seconds on a diffcult drip for the rider away from his hand. 

Fellow export and Texas Rattlers righty Brady Fielder went into LA right on the brink of the top 10 in the UTB standings, suffered a similar fate to his fellow countryman in the opening stanza from Arena. 

Matched up with July (Leffew Bucking Bulls), Fielder will feel he let one slip falling just .2 of a second short of the magic marker, bucking off in 7.72 seconds on a trip away from his hand and unfortunately getting the thumbs down from replay judge Allan Jordan after challenging the ride. 

Night two was bitter sweet for the two, with Miller unable to find the whistle during his Round 2 effort with Devil's Revenge (Dakota Rodeo/Chad Berger/ Lucky Blue Crab Bucking Bulls) leaving a mark on the competition and the Aussie's helmet in 2.48 seconds on a really awkward trip for the cowboy unable to find the front of the bovine. 

It was much better news for the Fielder who gained his 12th Qualified Ride of this season's UTB tour on the back of Ivy League (Jane Clark / Gene Owen) for 85.5 points, on a trip where the bovine came out looking right for two jumps and then turned back left away from Fielder's hand and booking him his 4th short-go entry of the 2024 UTB season.

Memphis, TN Velocity Tour

Koumala, QLD's Qynn Andersen was the lone Aussie at the home of the great Elvis Presley for last weekend's PBR Velocity Tour event in Memphis, TN.

Andersen's battling to find his way to the next level, currently sitting 10th (4-from-13) and looking to further press for an opportunity to climb further up the ladder towards PBR Finals qualification in May. 

Magnitude (Jenkins Cattle Co) was the re-ride handed to the right handed Queenslander after a 71-point out on Kadek (Topline Steel Buildings/ Barret) and unfortunately the bovine was able to fight back halfway through the trip to the left and get the slap at 5.72 seconds, after the first 5 seconds looked dominate for Qynn.
