CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Bull riding fans will get to see some of the top riders in the world Saturday at U.S. Bank Arena as the Professional Bull Riders (PBR) Velocity Tour makes a stop in Cincinnati.

But don't call this event just a rodeo. Organizers say it's even more with two hours of intense bull riding action pairing riders against the best bulls in the industry.

"It's a man vs. beast wrapped in glitz and glamour," the event description reads.

The Bull Riders Velocity Tour involves approximately 70 tons of dirt, more than 50 bucking bulls and seven semi trucks to load it all in.

The average PBR bucking bull weighs between 1,700 to 2,000 pounds. Compare that to an average rider who weighs in around 140 pounds.

Details: 7 p.m. Saturday. U.S. Bank Arena, 1000 Broadway, Downtown. $15. www.usbankarena.com.
