ABOUT Austin

Most kids by the age of 13 are riding bikes and skateboards, but by then, our guy Austin Richardson was already taking on some of the toughest bulls in the world. Growing up outside of Dallas, he and his buddies got a shot at bull riding at an early age, and Austin showed he was natural from his very first ride. By 16 Austin was all in on bull riding and decided that he wanted to go pro. Luckily, he didn’t have to wait long, because at only 18 Austin got his PBR card and began competing on the biggest stages in the sport. Since then he’s become one of the most competitive riders in PBR, and he’s been a BRUNT-sponsored athlete for the last couple seasons. This year he was #1 in the world before a season-ending injury, but Austin’s recovery has gone according to plan and he’s on-track to be at full strength for next season. For a dude who’s only 24, Austin spits a lot of wisdom and speaks very humbly about his talents—if you’re looking for someone to root for in PBR, he’s your guy.
