19-YEAR-OLD PBR ROOKIE FEELS SPECIAL WEARING ICONIC MONSTER LOGO

Apr 072016

Derek Kolbaba has proven himself to be quite a special bull rider. It was special, last October, when Kolbaba was the youngest rider to qualify for the PBR World Finals. It was just as special in January when the 19-year-old won the season’s second 15/15 Bucking Battle, in Anaheim, California, with an 89.25-point effort on DaNutSo. The win was made all the more special when it was broadcast on CBS network. And, of course, those special moments led to yet another when Kolbaba was the latest professional bull rider to be sponsored by Monster Energy. He joins Guilherme Marchi, Robson Palermo, Gage Gay, Chase Outlaw, Reese Cates and reigning World Champion J.B. Mauney. “That was pretty awesome,” Kolbaba said. “I feel that Monster has the elite guys on their team and for them to come up to me and want to partner up for the year; that was pretty special." “Now it’s in my hands to do my job and it’s pretty awesome having those guys supporting me.”
