Marchi and Pozzobon win Round 2 of the World Finals ~ Heather Croze

Posted in [PBR], [Victoria] By Victoria Lynn
2008 PBR World Champion Guilherme Marchi and Canadian Champion Ty Pozzobon emerged as the winners of Round 2 of the Built Ford Tough World Finals after matching 89.5-point rides Thursday night at T-Mobile Arena.

Meanwhile, two-time and reigning World Champion J.B. Mauney covered his second bull of the event after he rode Margy Time for 87 points to finish fifth in the round. The defending champion is now 2-for-2 and picked up 75 world points, moving him within 525.33 points of current world leader Kaique Pacheco, who was bucked off by Pearl Harbor in Round 2.

Cooper Davis, the current No. 2 in the world standings, was bucked off in Round 2 by David’s Dream.

Pozzobon leads the event average after his Round 2 ride on Big Cat, while Mauney is tied for second place in the average.

Marchi became the first rider to cover Smooth Operator. Pozzobon and Marchi each earned 240 points toward the world standings for their finish. Marchi moved to 10th in the world standings, while Pozzobon climbed to 25th.

SweetPro’s Long John earned high-marked bull honors after tossing Kasey Hayes in 6.18 seconds, earning a 45.75-point bull score in the first of his two outs that will count toward the World Champion Bull race.

Rubens Barbosa finished third in Round 2 after an 89-point trip aboard Wicked. Barbosa is only the third rider to cover Wicked on the Built Ford Tough Series this season, and the first since Kaique Pacheco did so here in Las Vegas at Last Cowboy Standing. Barbosa earned 125 points toward the world standings for the finish.

2016 PBR Brazil Champion Dener Barbosa turned in his first qualified ride on the BFTS when he covered Stone Sober for 87.5 points to finish fourth in Round 2. Dener joins Mauney as the only rider to cover Stone Sober on the BFTS this season.

The Top 40 bull riders in the world will enter crunch time Friday night as they return for Round 3 of the World Finals. The action starts on CBS Sports Network and PBR LIVE at 9:30 p.m. ET.
