LAS VEGAS (AP) — J.B. Mauney won his first Professional Bull Riders championship Sunday, earning $1 million for the season points title and another $250,000 for topping the six-round PBR World Finals.
The Mooresville, N.C., rider wrapped up the season title by winning the fifth round with a 91-point ride on Harlem Shake. He finished the season with earnings of $1,810,711.
Mauney was the lone rider to have six successful rides, the last a winning 93 on Wipeout in the championship round. He is the only finals competitor to ride all six bulls twice, a feat he first accomplished in 2009 when he won the finals aggregate title.
Two-time defending world champion Silvano Alves of Brazil finished second in the world title race, 977.75 points behind Mauney. Alves also was second in the event aggregate.
