An event nicknamed "Unleash the Beast", the 2024 PBR World Finals is set to be two days of brilliant bronco busting action. And, at the end of Sunday, a new world champion will be crowned, with the highest aggregate scorer from the four rounds taking the title.

With the field of wannabe champs being whittled down during the qualifying events earlier in the week, 25 hopefuls will compete across the weekend in a bid to succeed Brazilian Rafael José de Brito as the world champion bull rider. He took the competition by storm last year, becoming the first ever rider to win the World Championship, Rookie of the Year and World Finals event title in the same season.

But De Brito is currently suspended from all PBR events, opening up the field for somebody else to ride their way to the title. The likes of Sage Steele Kimzey, Andrew Alvidrez, Dener Barbosa, Claudio Montanha Jr. and three-time champion Silvano Alves are all among the riders who have qualified for the World Finals weekend and likely to compete for the gold buckle.
