The Kansas City Outlaws’ Dias bucked off for the first time this season. Fresh off his back-to-back event wins, Dias was no match forCoolio (C-B Bucking Bulls), tossed in a quick 3.66 seconds.

While No. 2 Cody Jesus (Window Rock, Arizona) was unable to capitalize on Dias’s stumble, also failing to make the 8 in Round 1, the duo has a new rider hot on their spurs as Alan de Souza (Taubate, Brazil) tied for sixth to rise from No. 5 to No. 3.

The Nashville Stampede’s Souza rode Gravy (Wigged Out Cattle Co.) for 84.25 points to earn 13 Unleash The Beast points. Ahead of Championship Saturday for PBR Manchester, Souza trails No. 1 Dias by 212.5 points.

Alves covered Tijuana Two-Step (Blake Sharp/Michael Floyd) with ease, reaching the whistle as the crowd erupted in cheer for his 85.75-point score.

Traveling to the Granite State ranked No. 19 in the world, the Nashville Stampede’s Alves rose to No. 14. He trails No. 1 Dias by 289 points.

Arizona Ridge Rider Jesse Petri (Dublin, Texas) was fourth compliments of his 85.25-point ride atop Sandman (Cornwell Bucking Bulls/Waggoner Bucking Bulls).
