Dieter van der Eyken, who himself is pretty busy with competing at the PWA World Cup Bonaire, sent us a report about close heats in the Single Elimination. Obviously there was some frustration within the competitors as some heats had nebulous results and some riders let out their frustration on Facebook.
Taty Frans: “I really don’t mind losing as long i know i lost, but when you lose because of some random reason that i really don’t know, by taking points give to another rider likeeeee….. Are you serious. Guess that’s how the pwa roles..”
Gollito Estredo: “This is incredible. When people want to make someone lose they just do it no matter what or how, this time they did it in a really bad way. Am gonna wait for your coments, thats important to me. My heat NB-20 vs V-10 The Fraud of the day, i am so sad because of this and i dont have anymore words to say.”
Dieter van der Eyken: “Got 5th in the single after loosing against Tonky, sailed a good heat but still lost. Watching the sheets got me even more depressed seeing the judges wrote down culo as my first move instead of oh air bob, double spock instead of double spock diablo.. so lost by half a point and a point .. Anyway well done to Tonky! Time to fight back in the double!! bummer I missed out on top 4 really was possible with how I sailed!!”
