New York Mavericks sign 4x PBR World Finals qualifier Mauricio Moreira | PBR | Professional Bull Riders

New York, NY. – The newest PBR (Professional Bull Riders) Team, the New York Mavericks, today announced a new rider acquisition, signing four-time PBR World Finals qualifier Mauricio Gulla Moreira (Gavião Peixoto, Brazil) to the team’s reserve roster.

“Mauricio showed up to training camp as an invite, worked hard and showed that he has the physical and mental tools to contribute to the team,” said Head Coach of the New York Mavericks and 2024 Bull Riding Hall of Fame inductee, Kody Lostroh. “He’s already got experience and success at the PBR level, and I believe, in our program he can take his success even higher. We are looking forward to having him on the team.” Lostroh adds.

Professional bull riding is second nature to Moreira with his own father winning the 53rd bull riding competition at the prestigious Barretos rodeo in Brazil in 2008, when he was just 9 years old. His biggest motivator has always been his dad and honoring his roots and brings energy, athleticism and strength to the team.

In the separate PBR Unleash The Beast individual competition series, Moreira finished inside the Top 10 in 2021 and 2022. At the 2022 PBR World Finals, he registered the high-marked ride of the event, scoring 94.25 points on WSM’s Jive Turkey in Round 2. He was a second-round pick in the inaugural PBR Team Series Draft, selected by the Arizona Ridge Riders in 2022.

The New York Mavericks complete roster now includes:

Vitor Losnake (Piratininga, Brazil)
Leonardo Castro (Cassilandia, Brazil)

Ederson Santos (Ilha Solteira, Brazil)
