Silvano Alves held on to his sizable lead to win the Professional Bull Riders world title and $1 million bonus, and Robson Palermo jumped from fourth to first place Sunday to take home $250,000 as the winner of the six-round event at Thomas & Mack Center.

Alves, from Pilar Do Sul, Brazil, finished with a 2,706.25-point margin over Palermo, from Rio Branco, Brazil, for his first PBR season title. He earned just over $1.4 million in 2011.

Alves scored 88.25 on Big Iron in the fifth round, and was third with a 92.25 on Yellow Jacket Jr. in the championship round, both Sunday.
