HuffPost Weird News Rides Metal Beast With Help From The Professional Bull Riders (VIDEO)

This ain't our first rodeo.

On Wednesday, the Weird News team took a trip to Johnny Utah's in New York City to ride their most fearsome creature -- a mechanical bull.

The event was a prelude to the Professional Bull Riders' upcoming three-day championship at Madison Square Garden this weekend, where cowboys will ride real-life bulls and buck their way into the history books. Last year, PBR World Champion J.B. Mauney captured his third event win, and has won more than $5 million in winnings.

Thankfully, we had the help of professional bull riders L.J. Jenkins and Matt Triplett there to offer advice on how to best the metal beast.

Competition was fierce, and in the end, only one person could come away with $2,000 for the charity of their choice. Watch the video to find out who took it all home.
