LEIGH Adams has conceded that his World title hopes are over for 2009.
Adams failed to make the semi-finals at Copenhagen last weekend, and is down in ninth place overall after four rounds on 28 points - 46 behind fellow Aussie and GP leader Jason Crump.
Adams said: "The championship's gone, it's over for me. I had to be on top of the box in Denmark to have any chance of getting back in the hunt.
"We have to forget about points and placings now and just try and get back to where we were.

"But we'll keep battling away and I am looking forward to Cardiff - it is always a good event."
