World-Class Professional Bull Riding (PBR) returns to North Charleston, South Carolina, Feb. 3-4. Interviews available with defending Event Champion Michael Lane.
For the fifth time in history, PBR’s Pendleton Whisky Velocity Tour will buck into North Charleston, returning to the North Charleston Coliseum on Feb. 3-4 with the PBR Collision at The Coliseum.
For two nights only, some of the best bull riders in the world will battle the sport’s rankest bovine athletes in the ultimate showdown of “man vs. beast” in one of the most exciting live sporting events to witness.
As one of the initial events of the regular-season, fans will watch on as some of the sport’s newest up-and-coming talent goes head-to-head against established stars vying for crucial points to return to the sport’s top tour.
Among the contenders hoping for great success in The Palmetto State is veteran rider and defending “Collision at The Coliseum” event winner Michael Lane.
Beginning his career as a youngster riding his siblings’ show sheep, Michael Lane has since become one of the world’s top professional bull riders.
As the winningest bull rider on the PBR’s Pendleton Whisky Velocity Tour, in 2021 Lane appeared to be poised to be crowned the tour’s year-end champion until injury struck.
Winning two events throughout the regular season in both Wichita, Kansas, and Bangor, Maine, Lane was ranked number one in the tour standings ahead of the two-day “Velocity Tour Finals” in Las Vegas. Lane, however, was unable to compete, sidelined by a broken thumb. Unable to challenge for the title, Lane finished runner-up to Champion Adriano Salgado by a mere 26.5 points.
In 2022, despite a strong start to the season, winning the “Velocity Tour” event in North Charleston, Lane fell short of his first “Velocity Tour Championship” and a berth to the prestigious “PBR World Finals.”
Eager to reverse his fortunes in 2023, determined to be crowned by the “PBR Velocity Tour Champion” and return to the prestigious “PBR World Finals” for the fourth time in his career, Lane is ready to take North Charleston by storm.
