ROCKHAMPTON'S Browne Park will be buzzing on Saturday night as 40 of Australia's most accomplished bull riders converge on Central Queensland for the APN Live Bull Riding Series.

Ranked number one in the PBR standings, New Zealand champion Fraser Babbington is going into the event full of confidence after placing second in Innisfail and winning the Mackay PBR event last weekend.

Since Babbington first began competing on the PBR Tour, he has consistently been in the top 10 but this time around he has a run for the national title high on his list of goals. If his form is anything to go by, he is the man to watch this season.

The former equestrian rider has adapted well to the sport and his unique riding style and carefree attitude are the key ingredients of his consistency and ability to ride bulls most struggle with.

Participate in the commentary on the night via Twitter, or simply post a selfie to show us how much you love PBR

The season is only in its early stages but there is a three-way battle building - Babbington, Nebo's Justin Paton, who was last season's runner-up for the Australian title and is positioned second in the rankings, and Roy Dunn, having one of his best seasons.

With the $20,000 Live Series Bonus qualification kicking in this weekend, competition standard is expected to rise to a new level.
