"This is a heartbreaking tragedy for everyone in the sport," Giangola shared. "Amadeu was a determined Cowboy athlete, tough yet kind. He was riding for his love of the sport and to help his family. He was well liked by everyone. The entire PBR and western sports family extend our thoughts, prayers, and heartfelt condolences to Amadeu's family and friends."

Referring to the bull Amadeu was riding on, the spokesperson explained, "There are no indications that the bull, Classic Man, did anything out of the ordinary in his bucking motion during the out [attempt to stay on]. This was not an act of aggression. The bull was bucking in his normal pattern. Amadeu's spur got hung up in the flank rope, and he was pulled under the bull in a freak accident. Classic Man is still eligible to compete in future events."

According to Giangola, PBR is still investigating the accident and will create a legacy fund to support the young man's family and future bull riders. Per the organization's website, the tragic accident happened three days shy of Amadeu's 23rd birthday.
