PBR Returns to Billings this Weekend

On Friday, the PBR returns to the Magic City. It is one of the oldest and longest running events on the tour schedule. It is also a homecoming for one young man. Columbia Falls' Matt Triplett is currently ranked 13th in the world standings. When he is healthy, Triplett is as good as anyone on the pro tour. Triplett is in his 8th season and has finished as high as 3rd in the world, which occurred in 2014. However, it's the stop in Billings that Triplett would love to win because family and friends from across the Treasure State will be in town to watch him. "It's gotta be, you know, the biggest one to win," Triplett explain. "I come here every year and I just want to impress the home crowd and it's nice to be able to ride in front of them. They support me throughout the whole year so it makes it fun to be able to come and ride and be able to perform in front of the home crowd."
