The Dream Is Over

The World Title dream for Ryan Hardy (above) went horribly astray in his Round Four heat at the 2011 Fronton Pro today.

Everything had to go his way for him to win the event and the World Title, yet he failed to land a routine invert on his first wave and lost a fin. He soldiered on, in the solid six foot and windy conditions, catching one of his scoring waves with only one fin, until his board caddy was able to give him a spare as the heat reached the halfway mark.

Hardy looked as though he was going to pull off the comeback of the contest as he pulled into a big righthander, but it pinched at the end and the heat ended with Ryan needing another scoring wave. His good friend and countryman, Mitch Rawlins, took the heat and ended his dream of becoming this years World Champion.

“I feel totally deflated, I feel like my life has basically just ended”, said Hardy.

Leader Of The Pack

The final 16 riders of the 2011 Fronton Pro have been decided after the completion of Round Three wrapped up the Leaderboard stage.

In Round Three, third seed and World Title contender, Ryan Hardy (above) put on an incredible performance, posting the highest heat score of the day, a 17.5 out of 20, and the only perfect 10 of the event so far. Hardy earned his 10 point ride on a draining right hand set wave, in which he scored a deep barrel and backflipped out.

The other two title contenders, Jeff Hubbard and Pierre Louis Costes, also put on strong performances, solidifying their spots in Round Four and keeping the title race alive.

To sum up the tense scenario, if Costes and Hardy do not advance through Round Four, Hubbard clinches the title regardless of his Round Four result.

Round Four will see Jeff Hubbard face event wildcard Jason Finlay in Heat One, Ryan Hardy vs. fellow Australian Mitch Rawlins in Heat Five and Pierre Louis Costes is matched up against local wildcard Elliot Morales in Heat Seven.
