In just a short amount of time, Silvano Alves has amassed a list of accomplishments that most career bull riders could only hope to achieve in a lifetime. The 3-time PBR World Champion was the first rider to win the PBR World Championship (2011) in the season immediately after winning PBR Rookie of the Year (2010). And, just two seasons later, won back-to-back world titles (2013-2014). In 2016, Alves finished the season 22nd in the PBR World Standings with 1 Win, 3 Top-5s, 7 Top-10s.

Life's Moments & Inspirations

My greatest achievement has been... Be World Champion
My biggest inspiration is... Brazilian bull rider, Fabricio Alves.
My next ambition is... Be 4-time World Champion.
My people describe me as... Humble, simple, enjoying the little things in the life.
