WATCH latest moment of SLT bad luck for Hauser in Toulouse

Australian Matt Hauser seems to have taken the brunt of the bad luck in this year’s SLT series, with a falsely awarded penalty in London, plus that crash in Malibu, making his crash last weekend at SLT Toulouse even harder to stomach for the Commonwealth Games Bronze medallist.

Nowhere to go

Following his crash whilst out in the lead in Malibu and his subsequent elimination, Hauser really needed things to go his way in Toulouse.

However, this crash behind Canadian Tyler Mislawchuk means that Hayden Wilde now has one hand firmly on the 2022 series crown.

Hauser was performing well in Toulouse up until the crash in the video above, but couldn’t recover from this one, as the time lost on the cobbled corner just out of transition was too much of a deficit to make up to Wilde.

Admirably, Hauser still managed a commendable fourth place finish, but is now well adrift in second in the championship standings, with the majority of his focus in Neom now likely to be on keeping away from Tayler Reid in third rather than catching Wilde who is all but away and gone.
