Professional Bull Riding is the fastest growing sport in the United States. What is likely unknown by those who are not fans of what is called “the toughest sport on dirt” is that the sport is arguably dominated by a group of riders from half way across the globe. These Brazilian bull riders may share backyard barbecues and locker room barbs in their native Portuguese, but in risking their bodies to pursue PBR glory, they are just like the other athletes putting everything at risk to be crowned the world’s best. Fearless tells their unique stories revealing these athletes’ range of personalities, humble faraway roots, and treasured family lives – yet everything can be taken away in an instant, each time they compete, by a powerful animal 10 times their size.
