FORT WORTH, Texas and PUEBLO, Colo. — RIDE TV, cable and satellite television network, is proud to present the brand new series PBR Ride to Glory, featuring the Pendleton Whisky Velocity Tour and other exciting bull riding events.
The series follows the long road to glory as cowboys travel the country facing off against America’s fiercest bulls.
“We’re thrilled that our premier expansion tour now has a great new television home which will bring more exposure to some of the best bull riding in the world,” said Sean Gleason, CEO, PBR. “This is proof of the success of a fast-growing tour that is increasingly important to the PBR World Championship.”

This new series will take fans past the bucking chutes and into the day-to-day lives and struggles of the cowboys that make this the toughest sport on dirt.”
The series will be hosted by Anthony Lucia, Colby Yates and Janie Johnson.
