The lead for the best in the PBR keeps changing hands almost on a weekly basis. This year so far, there is a real race to the World Championship going on.
This past weekend in Albuquerque at the TY MURRAY INVITATIONAL the lead changed again. This time to one of the hottest riders of the year, Austin Meier.
Meier is slimmer, more fit than ever and obviously focused on the job at hand. He's already been selected to the US World Cup team and no doubt will anchor a really strong team.
This cowboy is from Checotah Oklahoma, now living with his wife in Kinta Oklahoma. He comes from a family of bullriders and rode his first sheep at the tender age of 2. He was a champion rider in high school and in 2008 had 10 top 10 finishes as well as winning the first PBR Team Shootout with his cousin another popular bullrider, LJ Jenkins.
There should be no doubt that this cowboy has what it takes to be the World Champion. He can ride any bull at any time and he's been proving that this year.

Taking a look at this list right now, American World Cup team Captain JW Hart and Brazil team captain Adriano Moraes don't have to look too far to make up a team each. The Awesome Austin led American World Cup team and the Brazilliant Nunes led Brazil team should be a joy for all fans to watch. I'm not skipping over the other teams, but looking at the "who's who" list today, these two teams are going to be hard to beat.
In the photos: AWESOME AUSTIN MEIER!
