Sorry about that. I forgot that we also have Boys and Jr. Boys to go. Congrats to Jacob Valdez for making it to the Finals in Boys and hats off to a great effort by brother Eddie in Jr. Men.

Here are Saturday's results: http://www.wakeworld.com/getarticle.asp?articleid=362

I noticed something interesting. How come that the Canadian grom who got second in Boys division was ineligible, yet Rusty was awarded 3rd in Pro while still representing Canada. Doesn't seem fair.

Anyway, congrats to all of the riders regardless of where you placed !!!

I think that was just a mistake in the press release. Obviously, no foreign-born rider can place at the U.S. Nationals.

The amateurs can not podium if not U.S. citizen. The pros can podium since it is a World Cup event and the points count.

Well then it seem like the event needs to be named something other than Nationals, or the double standard needs to be done away with.

Not really sure why I even care, just seemed really odd to me.

It's actually two tournaments in one. It's a World Cup event AND Nationals. There is no double standard.

Rusty placed 3rd in the World Cup event and will get points towards the King of Wake title for his efforts. However, he did not place third in the Pro Division for U.S. Nationals, Tino Santori did.

It said Tino was DQ'd?

Oops! Well, I guess it's whoever is next in line! :-)

Rusty said he took third? No money? Cause he's a Canook?

As I said, he did take third...in the World Cup event. I would assume he got some money too! However, he did not place at the U.S. Nationals. Again, same tournament time and location, but really two tournaments with different qualification rules.
