The coronavirus crisis has claimed another event in New Mexico sports — the popular Ty Murray Invitational bullriding event that was scheduled to take place in late April at Dreamstyle Arena — the Pit.

The full statement by the PBR:

PUEBLO, Colo. – In light of U.S. and global health authority guidelines regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus), the PBR Unleash The Beast’s Ty Murray Invitational, presented by Isleta Resort & Casino, event set to take place at Dreamstyle Arena at the Pit on Friday, April 24, Saturday, April 25 and Sunday, April 26 in Albuquerque, N.M., has been canceled.  PBR is exploring alternatives to broadcast the canceled competition via CBS, RidePass, and RidePass Pro FloRodeo from a venue closed to fans. Fans who purchased tickets will be able to receive a refund (less any applicable fees) from the original point of purchase. Fans who purchased via PBR Direct will receive an email with refund details. We appreciate the support and understanding of our fans, competitors, partners and staff.
