September World Ranking

September brings us 2 new world ranking leaders !

As expected, Pedram Vakili Ranjbar (Aut) climbs on the top of the Speed Slalom Men world ranking this month ! He is the first Austrian skater ever to reach a first place in the history of the World Slalom Series. Thanks to his victory in Barcelona’s main event, he is now scoring almost 200 points more than Jimmy Fort, who is down to the second place. As no more main event is scheduled in 2017 the Austrian skater will finish the year keeping the first place, a big achievement for him as it was one of his main goals this year. Alejandro Canero Gomez (Esp) reaches the top 3 this month, his best rank so far, thanks to constant good results in the main events and his 4th place in Barcelona.

In the women category ,still lead by French Zoé Granjon, Ewelina Czapla (Pol) goes up to the second place, winning 9 places thanks to her victory in Barcelona’a Main Event. She’s followed by the Russian current best speed slalomer, Valentina Pashkova, who is up to the 3rd place. Laurine Moreno (Fra) enters the top 5 at the 5th place.

With 2 new leaders in 2 months, the freestyle slides ranking is one of the most active rankings of the moment. Mongolian skater Munkhtulga Jargalsaikhan is now the new freestyle slides world number one ! He is the very first skater from Mongolia to reach the top of a world ranking in the history of the World Slalom Series. For only 1 point, Carlos Nelson (Esp), up to the second place, misses the chance to come back on the first place that he lost one month ago. He is followed by Alejandro Canero Gomez (Esp) who shows he’s also a talented slider. Denis Shirobokov (Rus) is down from the first place to the 4th place, as he missed the last main event of the season.

In the Women ranking, still lead by Natalia Krykova (Rus) freshly crowned Champion of Europe, Daria Kogoyakova (Rus) comes up to the second place, passing former world number one Olga Fokina (Rus) who is now ranked third.

No big changes in the freestyle slalom men & women rankings as the top 3 skaters kept their rank. Chiu Yin Hsuan (Tpe) is up to the 4th place in the women ranking and is only 13 points from the podium. In the men category Ambroise Nicolao (Fra) and Hsieh Mu-Lun (Tpe) enter the world’s top 10 respectively at the 9th and 10th place.

In free jump category, despite another title of European champion, Maeliss Conan (Fra) continues to go down and is now at the 5th place.

In Pair freestyle, Chiu Yin-Hsuan & Hsieh Mu-Lun (Tpe) are slowly going up and reach the second rank this month, their best rank so far.

August World Ranking

The August’s World Rankings bring us surprises again, with not least than 3 new leaders !

First, in Speed Slalom Men, French Jimmy Fort made it to the first place for the very first time of his career ! 5 years after his brother Yohan, the new world number one shows that speed slalom is in the family’s blood. J.Fort’s best rank until today was a second place, and thanks to his good summer performances he could finally reach the top.
The speed slalom ranking has never been so tight, as the 4 best skaters are in 23 points only. We can say that the number one will have a hard time to defend his throne, especially against Austrian Pedram Vakili Ranjbar, who won 14 places this month to go up to the second place, only 18 points behind the leader. P.Vakili Ranjbar is promised to become the very first world number one from Austria in the next September ranking, as he only counts 4 events points and no points to lose.
Lorenzo Guslandi (Ita) lost his crown only after two months at the top, and is down to the 3rd place.

The speed slalom women’s ranking is still lead by French Zoe Granjon, but Italian speed slalom skaters made a good come back in the world’s top 3, with Laura La Volpe coming from the 5th place up to the second place, the best rank of her career, and Martina Orini, winning one rank this month up to the 3rd place. We can note a nice 4th place for Svetlana Stepanova (Blr) who reaches her best rank ever at the 4th place.

In Freestyle Slides men’s ranking, Denis Shirobokov (Rus), thanks to his victory in Moscow, is back to the first place, after having let it to Carlos Nelson for only one month. The spanish skater is down to the third place, only one point behind the new world number two, the Mongolian Munkhtulga Jargalsaikhan, who reaches his best rank so far.

No big Change in the women’s slide ranking, being still lead by Natalia Krykova (Rus), followed by Olga Fokina (Rus), except for the third place which has been taken by another russian skater, Daria Konyukhova, who won 6 places to reach her best rank ever.

We have another new leader in free jump women ! After only one month at the top, Natalya Krykova (Rus) got back down to the second place, letting her compatriot Darya Kogoyakova become the new world number one, for only 4 points. A logical result, as out of 4 confrontations against N.Krykova, the new leader won 3 of them this season so far. Maëliss Conan (Fra) lost again some points for not competing in main events and is down to the world’s 3rd place.

In the Men’s free jump ranking, no change in the top 3, still lead by French Alexandre Fantuz, in front of Italians Lorenzo Demuru and Matteo Pallazzi, respectively second and third. Russian Mikhail Smirnov goes up to the 4th place, thanks to his victory in Moscow.

The Freestyle Slalom Men’s ranking is still lead by Russia’s Sergei Timchenko, for the 36th month in a row, setting up again and again the record of time being number one, which is now 3 years !! Romain Lebois (Far) goes back up to the 3rd place, and is now only 31 points behind Lorenzo Guslandi (Ita), second. We can note the fast comeback of Zhang Hao, who passed from Junior category to senior category this year. the chinese skater is up to the 7th place, by winning 16 places, and still has many potential points to get before the end of the year, as senior results give him much more points that what he could get last year.

In the women’s freestyle slalom ranking, Daria Kuznetsova (Rus) keeps her crown for one more month. French Zoe Granjon, is up to the second place, and Ksenya Dubinchik (Rus) down to the third place. Daria Konyukhova (Rus) and Svetlana Stepanova (Blr) enter the world’s top 10 respectively at the 9th and 10th places.
