Another week down of PBR action across the world with Aussies aplenty showing out across the various PBR events. 

Get up to speed in case you missed it with this week's edition of Aussies Abroad. 

Unleash The Beast Jacksonville, FL

Callum Miller and Brady Fielder were on deck for the 13th tour stop of the 2024 premier PBR series in the Sunshine State, rolling into VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, FL. 

Round one saw Miller's name on the daysheet next to Big Chilli (Blake Sharp / Bull Mama's / UB Bucking Co.) and with the Queenslander sitting 31st on the UTB standings, he would have been eager to get his weekend underway with a score. 

Unfortunately it wasn't to be for Callum, with the bovine showing why he's now 7-0 against right handed cowboys, turning back sharply to the left away from Millers hand and disposing him at the 3.04 second mark for a no score. 

Fielder suffered similar fate later on in the Round, with the Texas Rattler drawing Redwing (Universal Pro Rodeo/Delmas/Williams), the animal athlete took his record against right handed riders to 9 straight buckoffs. 

On a trip which Redwing had not much to his action in terms of kicking and raring, instead choosing a flat spin to the left away from the hand of the Central Queenslander, Fielder will feel the 5.03 second premature ending was one that got away. 

As championship Saturday rolled in, Miller was tasked with trying to find a qualified ride on Big Worm (Berryman/Coleman/Ogden /Hart) as a dance partner, who had only been covered once in 17 outs to date. 

The bovine continued the streak and left the 28 year old with another unsuccessful weekend, on a really uncharacteristic trip for Big Worm, taking 5-6 jumps to the middle of the arena before turning back left with Miller unable to find any kind of timing in the ride for a 4.23 second ejection. 

Clermont native Fielder had a young bovine Chupacabra from the Blake Sharp/UB Buckin' Company pen who has his first PBR UTB out the night previous bucking off Alan de Souza at the 3.98 second mark. 

Fielder made a heck of a battle of the trip for 7 and a half of the allotted 8 seconds, but unfortunately was unable to finish the job away from his hand, falling to the outside of the spin and bucking off in 7.44 seconds. 

Both Miller and Fielder will now look to turn the tables at the UTB tour heads to Indiana this weekend, for the Indianapolis showdown. 


PBR Velocity Tour, Hampton VA 

Qynn Andersen booked another trip to the pay window in the Velocity Tour and continuing to show why he will be a rider to watch come the PBR Teams series, gaining an equal 4/7 finish going 1-from-3 for the weekend. 

After bucking of Scotty Potty (Lucas Manning Bucking Bulls) in Round 1 in 4.79 seconds on a nice trip from the bovine on PBR debut, Andersen wouldn't be denied during the second stanza. 


Qynn Andersen 84-points on Day Time Demon

Andersen drew Day Time Demon (Diamond M Bucking Bulls) and proved to be a bull that would be a perfect match for the Koumala Cowboy, with the animal athlete coming out of the chutes into the hand of Andersen and was good enough to weather the early storm and settle into a nice qualified ride of 84-points. 

Andersen now sits 9th on the US Velocity Tour standings and will look to continue his climb up the ladder to hopefully find himself back on the UTB tour soon.
