February World Ranking

As is the custom, now is the time to release the World Ranking of February. If in most of the categories, no major change occurred, it's not the case for the Speed Men category, as we will see in just a moment.



Speed Men : Indeed, after 4 months during which Savio Brivio (Ita) was on the throne of the Men's Speed Slalom World Ranking, Simone Nai Oleari (Ita), who (just to recall) has been 1st in this category's ranking 26 times already, overthrew Savio and got back on the 1st position, to leave his opponent with the rank of 2nd.


Speed Women : Wang Tzu Chien (Tpe) is still 1st of this ranking. Good news for Tiffany Derisbourg (Fra) who enters the TOP 3 by winning 1 place in the ranking. On the other side, Federica De Sensi (Ita) looses 6 places to end in the 17th position, and Barbara Bossi (Ita) also looses 1 place and is now ranked #4.


Freestyle Men : Sergey Timchenko (Rus) is still at the top of the World Ranking. However, two French riders, Alexandre Claris (Fra) and Romain Lebois (Fra) loose their respective positions of third and fifth of this ranking, and thus let Zhang Hao (Chn) move to the 3rd place, and Alexandr Timchenko (Rus) to the 5th. 


Freestyle Women : No big changes for this month. Double World Champion Daria Kuznetsova (Rus) is still leader of the World Ranking. Ksenia Dubinchik (Rus) looses 2 places and is now down to the 12th position. Camilla Morbidoni (Ita) and Guan Yu Xiang (Chn) take advantage of this change to move respectively to the 10th and 11th places.


Freestyle Slides Men : Again no changes for the Top-10 in February : Huang Hai Yang (Chn), Slides World Champion of 2014, is still on the top of the World Ranking.


Freestyle Slides Women : Same situation for the women. Bohdana Hotsko (Esp) is still leader of the Women's World Ranking, and has been in this position for 5 months now.


Free Jump Men : Lots of changes occurred in the Free Jump Men World Ranking. First, we have a new competitor in the TOP 10 with Kirill Ryazantsev (Rus) who won 5 places and is now ranked #10. Second, Dylan Couitti (Fra) looses 2 places and now down to the 7th place. Victor Caballero Mazacotte (Esp) moves up 3 places, and is now 6th of this ranking. Finally, Alexandre Fantuz (Fra) and Pablo Soler Cabañero (Esp) won 2 places and are now respectively at the 4th and 5th positions.


Free Jump Women : Maud Oguey (Fra) looses 1 place and is now at the 3rd position, leaving her rank of 2nd to Bohdana Hotsko (Esp)Maeliss Conan (Fra) is still number one of this Free Jump Women World Ranking. Check our recent interview with her available here !
