The PWA season finished last week in Sylt. With good results in the three disciplines taking place in the event, it was a very successful and spectacular show for the crowd. In total, they run four races in Slalom and double eliminations both in Freestyle and in Men and Women Waves. The winners of the event were Alex Mussolini and Iballa Ruano Moreno in Waves, Antoine Albeau in Slalom and Taty Frans in Freestyle.
Check out the last day of the wave competition.
Antoine Albeau took the Slalom Overall Title, Josh Angulo de Wave Title, Gollito Estredo the Freestyle Title and Daida Ruano the Woman Wave Title. It was a year with many tie-breaks. Micah Buzianis lost his third place to Bjorn Dunkerbek as Bjorn had a better result in the last event. In the ladies fleet though, they run two sail-off heats in some really extreme conditions to un-do the tie-breaks. They were equal points both in the first place (between Daida Moreno and Iballa Moreno) and in the third place (between Nayra Alonso and Karin Jaggi). Daida and Karin won these heats, winning like this the title and the third place in the podium
So the 2009 rankings finish this way:
Constructor’s championship results.
Josh Angulo declared in his speech after receiving his trophy that this was his last year competition Waves, but we will see if he can resist the temptation of winning still another title.
It is the end of the season and some riders report from their blogs. Kevin Pritchard seems a bit disappointed with himself, Nayra Alonso had a challenging time in Sylt and Dario Ojeda is happy with the Spanish fleet result,
