Professional Bull Riders Real Time Pain Relief Velocity Tour

Rapid City Rumble

About the event

The PBR (Professional Bull Riders) announced that the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center will host the Real Time Pain Relief Velocity Tour’s (RVT) first-ever Rapid City Rumble in Rapid City, South Dakota on Saturday, October 13th.

For one night only, some of the best bull riders in the world will battle the sport’s fiercest bovine athletes. The thrilling 8-second rides and heart-stopping wrecks make the PBR’s RVT Tour one of the most exciting live sporting events to witness.

Forty-five PBR riders will face one bull in Round 1 – then the Top-10 riders with the highest score will advance to the Championship Round. At the end of the competition, the rider with the highest combined score in the two rounds will be crowned the Rapid City Rumble Champion. 

Rapid City will be the 30th stop on the 2018 RVT Tour, which spans the country in cities including Salinas, California; Colorado Springs, Colorado; Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania; Rochester, New York, and Ontario, California. 

The 2018 RVT Tour will culminate with the RVT Finals at South Point Arena in Las Vegas on Nov. 2-3, leading into the PBR 25th Unleash The Beast World Finals. The winner of the RVT Finals, the second- and third-place finishers, and the top international performer, along with the 2018 RVT Tour Champion, will each qualify to compete at the PBR World Finals.
