#InCaseYouMissedIt: Leme breaks out the broom, Vieira stays perfect in California and more

It was a clean sweep in Anaheim, as Jose Vitor Leme just kept winning. Plus, Joao Ricardo Vieira loves the Cali life, and the rookies look to make their moves. Miss a moment of the action this weekend? Here’s what happened around the PBR.

On the Unleash The Beast…

To say it was a banner weekend for Jose Vitor Leme would be an understatement. First, he inched closer to the world No. 1 ranking with a Round 1 victory

…and then he surged into the top spot with victories in Round 2, the championship round and the overall event.

But wait, there’s more! Leme also earned his 10th 90-point ride of the season and is eyeing the PBR record.

Leme wasn’t the only Brazilian to have a hell of a weekend. No. 4 Joao Ricardo Vieira entered Anaheim with a flawless record – and two event wins – in California in 2019, and he left Anaheim a perfect 10-for-10 in the Golden State and keeping pace in the world title race.

Dylan Smith went 2-for-3 in Anaheim and hopes to ride himself into Rookie of the Year – and World Finals – contention.

Another talented rookie, Alisson de Souza leads the rookie class in qualified rides and has now ridden eight of his last 10 bulls on the premier series.

It wasn’t the weekend world No. 3 Chase Outlaw wanted, but he went 2-for-3 to keep that world lead in sight.

The weekend was a somber one for many of the Brazilian cowboys as they mourned Higor Gregorio, a Brazilian bull rider that passed away at an open rodeo on Friday.

Meanwhile, on the Pendleton Whisky Velocity Tour…

Alex Cardozo won the Peoria Classic, earning an invite to compete on the premier series at the Fairfax Invitational.

Up north in PBR Canada…

Lonnie West won the Celebration for the Two Bit Nation with his 2-for-2 performance for his second Canadian event win in a row.

Down Under in PBR Australia…

Cliff Richardson went 2-for-2 to win the Monster Energy Grafton Invitational in Grafton, New South Wales.
