Reno Pro Tour - Quarter Final Results
 
By Patrick Wampler

Sparks, NV For one run on Saturday in the MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour's stop at Sparks Marina, it was like looking into the past, 2002 to be exact. That was the year that Erik Ruck dominated wakeboarding, winning the Pro Tour Season Championship and the World Championship.

It has been a while since Ruck has performed at that level in competition, but today was one of those days. Ruck won his Quarterfinal heat on Saturday, setting him up with a great position heading into Sunday's Pro Men's Semifinals.

2002 was the year the MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour switched formats with each different event. One event was all sliders, another was all wake tricks, other events combined the two. It didn't matter, Ruck thrived in all the different formats.

Saturday's run was reminiscent of those days. Ruck showed mastery on both the wake and the apparatus.

"As good as things went for me today, I think I can do better," said Ruck. "I held back at the end of my passes where I know I could have had time for a couple of more tricks. I'll keep that in mind tomorrow and pick up the pace."

It will take another great run in the Semifinals to keep Ruck in the competition and give him a chance to unseat Philip Soven and Danny Harf as the top two riders in the Pro Men's game this year. Both Soven and Harf advanced into the Semifinals for the third time in three events on the Pro Wakeboard Tour in 2005.

Action in the Pro Women's Semifinal on Saturday set up a show down between the top two female riders. Sunday's Final will again determine the course of the top female rider on the Pro Wakeboard Tour as co-Indmar Performance Award Winners Dallas Friday and Emily Copeland advanced into the Finals by winning their Semifinal heats.

In the SeaDoo watercraft Pro Wakeskate Series, three of the five top ranked riders won heats to advance to Sunday's Finals. Brian Grubb, George Daniels and Brandon Thomas all won their heats on Saturday.

In the MasterCraft Junior X Series the top four riders in the season standings move into the Finals with Aaron Rathy, Philip Combs, Austin Hair and Reed Hansen all advancing.

This marks the second year of competition at the Sparks Marina for the MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour. This event was made possible through the support of the Reno Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority.
