The question in the topic title can be answered with a "no" if the money-points rule is in the rulebook.
I had the impression the PKRidersA is a club of the riders themselves, so they make the rules themselves?
And then I wonder if the rule was agreed upon before the 2009 tour started, or before the july Fuerte stop, or after.
From his website, I conclude Aaron was aware of the rule. Now he calls it a weird rule. Did he protest against the rule at any time? After he won in Fuerte? Or just now that he's not nr1 anymore?
The question of who is the world's best kiteboarder is impossible to answer for me. With a football match I can see the goals, the referee's mistakes, the play. But I can't see the kiteboarders' heats, and if I could, the tricks are so fast I really couldn't make chocolate of it.
It's become so professional it's not for me anymore.
In my case I'm happy with this years' result because I hope this title of World Champion for a Dutchman makes it easier in Holland for the Dutch kitesurf organisation NKV to negotiate more spots and protect the spots that are threatened by the EU Natura2000 legislation.
And I think Langeree deserves a change from being nr2 all the time.

I'm not sure this is Hadlow complaining tho...I think just some of his fans.Megabear wrote:aaron might be robed for the victory. But bottomline is the rules were decided before the competion ran, and he knew and helped verified those rules by participating.
So in the end, when he complains about that after the results is in, thats in some way devalueating the same competition that earned him his fame. Thats not very clever and very unsportsmanslike...

Its done so arguing is retarded but everyone knows hes a better rider. Although I will admit how technically hard langeree's one handed shit is, it is also the Anti-style. Its the worst looking thing to be introduced since ballerina board offs. Plus, his kite is out to lunch. He shouldn't be the champ, but he is so we all need to live with it
