PUEBLO, Colo. – The Professional Bull Riders announced Monday that fan-favorite Brendon Clark, who retired from bull riding at the end of the 2013 Built Ford Tough Series season, will return to action as host and sideline reporter for the all new PBR LIVE on CarbonTV.com this Saturday and Sunday from Madison Square Garden in New York.
The Australian will provide insight from behind the chutes and throughout the arena, in addition to conducting rider interviews via a new exclusive roving camera angle intended to provide PBR LIVE viewers unprecedented access to events.
“I’m very excited to be able to have an opportunity to share my take on the sport and give fans some insight that they might not be able to get elsewhere,” said Clark, who competed on the BFTS for 11 seasons, compiling 229 career rides. “It will be fun to share some stories about the riders, and it’s a great opportunity to continue to work closely with the PBR.”
Streams from the Monster Energy Buck Off at the Garden will begin at 8 p.m. ET on Friday, 7 p.m. ET on Saturday and 1 p.m. ET on Sunday. Fans can view the action at http://www.carbontv.com/shows/pbr.
