Overall Rankings

Men – After two events

Estredo’s excellent performance has enabled him to pinch back his perch at the top of the rankings. Kiri’s consistency sees him jump into second. But, a disastrous result here for Taty Frans sees him drop to 9th. However, if all of the events get a result then a discard will be allowed, which means that Taty could still claw his way back. The king of pop, Steven Van Broeckhoven (F2, Gaastra) slips into third.
