Remember, he failed stage 1 back in 21, 25 and 26 too. Then the very next time he went all the way to the final stage. He definitely has a chance to bounce back. He needs to take advice from the others on how to do the tackle. Whatever he's doing now is obviously ineffective. Remember he took over 20 seconds back in sasuke 32 and his plan backfired.

Was that the one where he failed Physics forever?
Indeed it was. He'd never make the practice squad with the method he tried there.
I wouldn't say Ryo's peaked physically, he's not even 30, but mentally, he's for some reason believed his own hype in spite of not having backed it up (and keep in mind even when he made it to the Final in 30, he clearly hadn't improved his rope skills from 27. With Yuuji's apparent motivation reset, I hope he takes that as motivation to change it up as well. He absolutely has the skills to win. He just needs to grow up.
