Many of you know that the WWA Wake Park Worlds and the Camsur Riders Cup are going off in The Philippines this week. However, you might not know about the "Ultimate Rider" competition that's taking place as well and I think it's pretty cool.

For the first time ever, pro men riders will be collecting points to determine an overall winner of the entire event. The divisions that will be included will be the Pro Men Wakeboard division during the CamSur Rider's Cup (boat), the Pro Men Wakeboard division in the WWA Wake Park World Championships (cable), the Obstacles Only division during the WWA Wake Park World Championships (cable) and the Pro Men Wakeboard division of the CWC Rail Park Contest (Sesitec System 2.0). The rider with the most cumulative points in these four divisions at the end of the event will collect an additional $8,000 USD!

To keep you up on everything, we've got Austin Hair there reporting daily with all the happenings at http://wakeworld.com/getarticle.asp?articleid=2117. He'll also be one of the riders competing for the Ultimate Rider title, so let's wish him all luck!

You can also check out a live stream of the events at www.camsurwatersportscomplex.com.

Forgot to ask, who do you think will win the Ultimate Rider title?

I dont know who is actually competing but if Rathy is I think he would. Hes a contest rider, hes really good at rails, and he always goes for it in contests..he doesnt just have fun and sees what happens like some of the best pros. It seems like hes more of a train guy

Tom Fooshee, Keith Lidberg, Andrew Adkison, or Nick Davies...

What? Austin is in the Philippines? He's a full time student. There's no way. Are you sure that's Austin? I don't remember a PI trip in the syllabus. I thought the tuition was a little steep this semester.

Pretty cool format and venue. That would be a neat tour format if there were a couple of more venues that had boat, cable and winch.

Are there no woman riders?

Kyle's picks seem pretty legit to me, at least the first three. I haven't seen too much footage of Nick Davies' riding behind the boat so I can't match him up against the big guns.

Lidberg is super legit on rails and cable and seems to have the it in his riding ability to be able to throw down the hammers needed behind the boat.

Fooshee has sick spins and raley varietions off ramps and the wake. His cable riding is big and mad technical.

I've seen Adkison compete on the cable before. I doubt he will rank top 5, but he could place above some of the other riders. If he gets first in the boat then he should have a chance.

Webb, Henshaw, Rathy, Errington, and LaRiche would be other main contenders I can think of... if those guys are riding. I'm going to have to pick Webb for the overall number one spot though. Gosh, I am bored in class.

I don't know the winch results outside of Austin's heat. JD 1st, Austin 2nd and Lidberg 3rd. Only one advanced to next round. They all 3 killed it. I would put JD in contention.

Yep, Nick is pretty strong behind the boat. He took down Adkison twice last year in two contests. Honestly, the one weakness that I would say he has would be the winch jam.
If Jimmy is there, which I don't think he is, he would definitely be in my list of five because he has enough cable tricks to make it through that grouping.

I would probably say lideberg as i know he shreds all three. Nick also is a heavy contender but i agree with Kyle the whinch jam will be his down fall...did anyone else see nicks backside 9 with 10 seconds left in the rails only jam last night on the webcast? i nearly had a fit.
Old    Adam Van Dyke (lfadam)      Join Date: Nov 2008       03-26-2009, 3:26 PM Reply   
ah I didnt know Nick Davies or Fooshee were riding. They are definitely favorites, I could see Lidberg too

One more for Davies, Foshee or Lidberg.

How are the women doing???

Yeah, Jeff just emailed me about that one. Kind of lame that they don't include wake, so I'm not sure that would be the Ultimate Boarder.

World Series- Behind the boat
Semi final results- Top 1 advances
Smith 98/ Lidberg 90/Collins81
Adkinson 94.75/Hair 93.75/Webb 65
Davies 91/ Hanson 90/C Bradley 89
Soven 100/ Foshie 90/ Watkins 80

Wakeskate semi finals
Finals will be Hanson, Harlos, Taylor and Pasture

Austin rode really well and ended up 5th. Andrew edged him out in semis. He also got 5th in wakeskate which really surprised him since doesn't get to train on wakeskate. Finals are Sunday.

Well I guess that answers everyones questions about how Nick is behind the boat, lol. Not that easy to take out contest machine T Hansen

Tom and JD Webb are the only two left with a chance to win it. JD has 9th in boat and cable, Tom was 5th in rail park and boat. Tom is alive in Cable and JD is alive in Rail park and they are both in the finals of the obstacle only on the cable. Tom has a slight lead but JD really stepped up on the cable and beat tom head to head in the rail park. It has been fun to watch so far!
