Real Time Pain Relief Velocity Tour offers great opportunity ~ Justin Felisko

With the book closed on the 2016 PBR season, the gate will open on 2017 with Saturday's Real Time Pain Relief Velocity Tour event in Ontario, California. The Velocity Tour, formerly known as the BlueDEF Tour, will continue to provide a way for up-and-coming bull riders to earn their way to the BFTS while providing veterans with a second chance at returning to the PBR's top-flight tour. Saturday's event in Ontario will feature several riders already within the Top 35 as well as young stars like Keyshawn Whitehorse working on getting a head start before the BFTS returns in January.
