Summary of the 2018 Season : 

 

The main change of the 2018 World Ranking was the split of the freestyle ranking into Classic Freestyle and Freestyle Battle.

 

Valerio Degli Agostini, Best Freestyle Slalom Skater in 2018.

In the Men's Freestyle Classic World Ranking after 46 months on the top (an absolute record for continuous leadership for all disciplines), Sergey Timchenko (Rus), who stopped competing this year,  was replaced by the current Classic European Champion, Valerio Degli Agostini (Ita). After one month, Valerio lost his first place in the benefit of Lorenzo Guslandi (Ita), who stayed on the top for two months in a row. In October 2018, Valerio Degli Agostini returned to the first place and he is now keeping the world number one title for three months in a row.

 

 

In the Men's Freestyle Battle World Ranking, Lorenzo Guslandi (Ita) was the leader of the first three months of 2018, then he gave back his position to Sergey Timchenko (Rus) for three months in a row. In July 2018, Lorenzo Guslandi returned to the top and stayed there for 4 months. Since November 2018, thanks to his excellent results this season, including 1 places of the PSWC and Busto Battle 2018, Valerio Degli Agostini took the leadership to finish the year with the World N°1 title. 

 

Pedram Ranjbar, the regularity pays off. 

After 11 months on the top of the Men's Speed Slalom World Ranking (since September 2017), Pedram Ranjbar (Aut) was replaced by Xiao Bing Cheng (Tpe), who held the world number one title for three consecutive months, thanks to an excellent beginning of season (he won all main events he took part - PSWC, Roller Club Cup and Inline Games 2018). Unfortunately Xiao Bing Cheng was injured and couldn't compete in the second part of the season's events. In November, 2018 Pedram Ranjbar came back to the top and he is still there for two months in a row. 

 

Andrey Kanygin, a solid new comer in Freestyle Slides. 

The leader of the Freestyle Slides World Ranking has changed three times this year. 

Munkhtulga Jargalsaikhan (Mng) has been the world number one for 9 months in a row (since September 2017). In June 2018, Carlos Nelson (Esp) took the lead and he stayed at the top for two months in a row. From August 2018 until today the world number one title belongs to Andrey Kanygin (Ukr) (5 consecutive months), thanks to very good results the whole season.

 

Lorenzo Demuru, maybe the most versatile skater gets the Freejump crown.

Alexandre Fantuz (Fra) stayed at the Free Jump World Ranking top for 11 months in a row (July 2017 - May 2018). Anton Mosolov (Rus) kept the lead for 4 months in a row, and then he was replaced by Lorenzo Demuru (Ita), who is now leading the Free Jump World Ranking for three months in a row.

 

Klaudia Hartmanis, the new queen of Freestyle. 

In the Women's Freestyle Battle World Ranking, the leader has changed three times. After 15 months at the top, the current Battle European Champion, Daria Kuznetsova (Rus) gave the leadership to Zoe Granjon (Fra), who held the title for 4 months in a row. Since August 2018, the first place in the Freestyle Battle World Ranking belongs to Klaudia Hartmanis (Pol), who won Battles of Polish Championships, Marshal Cup, Busto Battle, Conero Hero Battle and Freestyle Slalom Ketrzyn events. Let's see if she will be able to beat Darya's record, who lasted on top for 22 months in a row and 55 months in total.

 

The first leader of the Freestyle Classic Ranking was Zoe Granjon (Fra), who stayed on the top for 7 consecutive months. Further, the leading position was taken by Chiu Yin Hsuan (Tpe), who was the world number one for three months in a row. In November 2018, Klaudia Hartmanis (Pol) went up to first place of the classic ranking and she is still there (2 months in a row), thereby leading both freestyle rankings at the moment. Klaudia was used to the podiums for years already, and she finally reached the top, no doubt she will do everything she can to keep it as long as possible ! 

 

The Speed Slalom's crown belongs to Granjon's family. 

The Speed Slalom leadership was divided between the Granjon sisters. The first seven months of 2018, the first place belonged to Zoe Granjon (Fra), who held the lead for 34 months in a row, starting in October 2015 (the absolute record for the women's speed slalom). In August 2018, the first place went to her sister, Lily Granjon (Fra), who is now at the top for five months in a row, as she dominated clearly the 2018 season, winning Speed Slalom competitions of the World and Europe Championships, SSO 2018, Busto Battle, PSWC, Conero Hero Battle, French Championships and Rennes sur roulette events. 

 

Bohdana Hotsko, winner of the 2018 duel with Natalia Krykova. 

In the Freestyle Slides World Ranking two athletes were fighting for the leadership. The current World Champion, Natalia Krykova (Rus) was at the top for the first seven months of the year and 26 months in a row - a women's record in this discipline. In August 2018, Natalia was replaced by the current European Champion, Bohdana Hotsko (Ukr) for two months, she returned at the top in October, and again lost the world number one title to Bogdana, who is still on the top (2 months in a row for the moment).

 

Giorgia Pavanello takes it all, in freejump women. 

In Free Jump World Ranking the leader was changed three times this year. After a year at the top, Daria Kogoyakova (Rus) gave the leadership to Zhu Muyuan (Esp), who was staying on the first place for two months in a row. Since October 2018, the first place belongs to Giorgia Pavanello (Ita). Arianna Crippa (Ita) has the same number of points as Giorgia so the leader is determined only by comparing the results of both participants. As there can be only one, Giorgia Pavanello is the official World N°1 2018 ! We can't wait to see the duel between the two Italians in 2019 !

The new 2018 rulebook is now available !
After the annual WSSA rules session, where the WSSA rules committee discuss and vote about how to improve the rules, few changes appeared to be applied for the future events.

Among the modifications of the rules, here are the main changes for 2018 :

In Clssic Freestyle Slalom, the main change is that a cone penalty is now 1 point instead of 0,5 points ! Precision will pay more and mistakes will be more expensive than before.
There will be also points penalties for non performing enough tricks (-2 points per trick) or not performing tricks in all families (-3 points per family) during the performance.
It is now officially forbidden to wear a mask or to use face painting during the performance.

In Speed Slalom, an definition of "Time out" appeared. Also, no more start box for finals in KO mode.

In Battle Freestyle Slalom, skaters can be now penalized for next events or for world ranking, if they give up the competition without a valid medical reason, after the first round groups are published.

In Freestyle Slides, a new slide tricks matrix has been introduced, to update the level of the tricks.
It is now forbidden to touch the floor, with hands, even one. So even if a skater just touch one hand on the floor, the slide will not count.

In Free Jump, the "entry jump" has been introduced, stating that all skaters must jump the first bar of the competiton, as an introduction/presentation to the competition. The "Golden jump" has also been introduced, in case of tie for places 1-2-3.

Dakar 2017 event review : 

On 23th & 24th December took place a 2 cones event in Dakar organized by Acroroller under the instructions of Babacar Ndiaye. This 14th edition had special taste! Indeed, it was the 10th anniversary of Accroller and the first competition in Africa for the two Senegalese free jump world champions.

This event was the opportunity to sensitize judges among judgement and to validate Awa Shako (SEN) as a level 1 judge. No doubts, she will soon be able to supervise small events as she is a hardworking person and she is very committed to the sport. She has been assisted by Mohamed Guye (SEN) who is on his way to become validated.

 

Saturday, battle day. After fighting against the Hamattan wind and the Mauritanian sand, we have finally been able to start with women category. Rose Travan (SEN) wins it with ease in front of Baldé Awa and Maëlie Poussier (FRA).

We assisted to a great fight in the men category between Ndiaye Khalil Sore (SEN), Thiam Tamba (SEN) and Rémy Menard (FRA). The latter won it thanks to more complete runs and his competition knowledge. No doubts, this experience and the exchanges skaters had during the weekend will hep the local competitor to prepare themselves for The African championship that will take place in August.

On Sunday, the Speed Slalom day, everyone was there on time and sun came as well. For the women category, Finalists were the same than in battle but the final ranking order is different. Congrats to Adama Baldé (SEN) for her victory.

In the men category, Remy Menard (FRA) wins it in front of Papa Gaye (SEN) who has been able to make it to the final even though he was injured.

 

Last but not least, free jump! The world champion Awa Balde (SEN) wins it under the Mrs. Awa Nar Fall’s support, president of the Senegalese federation.

For the men, they were still 7 competitors at 1m45, crucial barre who defined the podium. Pierre Sarr (SEN) won with a final jump succeeded at 1,47m.

 

Among the judges, Nathan Menard was therand decided to judge because he wanted to support the event differently than by competing.

 

 

 

Interview of Nathan MENARD about his judge experience :

 

WSSA :

Nathan, what did you think about this judge experience?

 

Nathan :

It was great! As I expected, I’ve been very impressed by free jump but I also discovered many good skaters. However, I’ve seen many strategical errors in every discipline. That’s why I’m really glad we gave a judge course to 11 people. I think it helped people to understand the rules better and I have high hopes people will make less mistakes thanks to it.

 

WSSA :

What marked you in this event?

 

Nathan :

It wasn’t part of the competition, but I’ve been very impressed by the jump demonstration! Guys were throwing backflips from everywhere it was crazy! Also, I wasn’t expecting to see 7people at 1m45, I still can’t believe it!

 

WSSA :

Have you seen promising skaters?

 

Nathan :

Yes! I’ve seen many promising skaters but I’ve been particularly impressed by two of them: Ndiaye Khalil Sore and Thiam Tamba. As they have good structures I put many hopes on them for the next few years.

 

 See you

In the women category, it is Darya Kogoyakova (Rus) who took the place of Maëliss Conan (Fra), who didn’t compete as much this year.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
