When PBR’s Unleash The Beast last travelled to Milwaukee in March 2023, Kaique Pacheco (Itatiba, Brazil) emerged supreme, winning PBR Milwaukee and moving to No. 2 in the heated World Championship race. The win marked Pacheco’s second in Milwaukee, having also rode his way to the winner’s circle in 2018.
As the lone rider to go a perfect 3-for-3, Pacheco collected his second Unleash The Beast victory of the season inside Fiserv Forum. Pacheco first put points on the board when he won Round 1 courtesy of an 89-point ride atop Alter Ego (Fabulous IV Ranch/Josh & Dalton Walling).
Pacheco then logged his second score in Wisconsin when he went the distance atop Midnight Flyer (Jane Clark/Gene Owen) for 81 points.
With the third pick in the championship round bull draft, Pacheco architected a familiar showdown in selecting Canadian-born Moonlight Party (Jane Clark/Gene Owen). Having attempted the bull four times prior, Pacheco had ridden Moonlight Party in their three most recent showdowns. Pacheco went on to make it 4-for-5 on Moonlight Party, remaining in perfect time with the powerhouse bull, matching him jump-for-jump en route to an 89-point score, enough to clinch the victory.
As the season progressed, Pacheco remained a top contender for the year’s World Championship, leading the world for the final six weeks of the season after overtaking the top spot in early April. Pacheco, however, was unable to contend for his second World Championship, sustaining a broken leg in the final weeks of the season.
Other past PBR Milwaukee Invitational event winners include Joao Ricardo Vieira (2022 – Itatinga, Brazil) and Paulo Ferreira Lima (2016 – Bezerros, Brazil).
