GUILHERME MARCHI, 33, is the most consistent PBR rider in history. The 2008 World Champion has totaled 547 qualified rides – the first and only rider in the 23-year history of the PBR to surpass 500 – and will nod his head for an unprecedented 1,000th time in 2016. His riding average of 57.22 percent is the highest of any rider to have competed at the highest level of competition for 10 years. He finished 10 of the past 12 seasons ranked in the Top 10, including a world title (2008) and four second place finishes (2005, 2006, 2007, 2012). He’s also finished third in the world (2009) and fourth twice (2011, 2013). No other rider in PBR history has had eight Top 5 seasons. The Brazilian native, who now makes his home in Texas, also won the World Finals event average in 2005 and, in 2016, he will look to qualify for a record-tying 13th World Finals event. His nearly $4.9 million in career earnings is fourth on the all- time PBR money-earners list. His highest-marked ride came in 2009 when he rode Big Tex for 94 points at an event in Nampa, Idaho.
