Hello once again from the AFP. Today we have another quick update for you, which includes a look at how the Gold-Level Step Up Freeski Tour finale (Slopestyle) at Le Relais, Quebec and the Gold-Level Total Fight (Slopestyle) at Grandvalira, Andorra have affected the AFP World Tour Rankings…
We’ll begin with the last stop on the Step Up Freeski Tour, where Max Moffatt’s spring hot streak continued with his fourth podium appearance in a row (and second win) courtesy of his victory, which has bumped him six more spots up the rankings, from 34th to 28th. In second was Sam McKeown, who is 24 spots up into 54th, while rounding out the podium in third was Patrick Dew, who is 14 spots up into 38th. Also worth noting is fourth place finisher Brenden Reid, who is up seven spots into 34th, and the stalwart Matt Wilcox, who is three spots up into 29th after finishing fifth.
At Total Fight, Andri Ragettli emerged victorious, which keeps him in 4th, while Jesper Tjader scored second to ascend five spots into 12th, and Fabian Bosch continued his thunderous breakout season with his fourth podium finish in third, which has nudged him two spots up into 5th.
Total Fight Podium: Fabian Bosch (3rd), Andri Ragettli (1st), Jesper Tjader (2nd).
On the Women’s Slopestyle side of things, the only event to report on is the Step Up Freeski Tour (since there was no ladies’ division at Total Fight), where Anouk Purnelle-Faniel is now in 81st thanks to her win, Marilou Bouthiette is up one spot into 50th thanks to scoring second, and Sofia Tchernetsky is up 10 into 32nd after taking third.
On the Men’s Overall Rankings, Patrick Dew is up eight spots into 20th and Sam McKeown is up 17 into 26th thanks to their podium finishes at the Step Up Freeski Tour, while on the Women’s, the only change to the top 30 is Carly Lavieille jumping five spots up into 28th.
That’s it for now on the AFP World Tour Rankings, but stay tuned next week for our second to last update on the 2016 AFP World Tour, which will recap the results from the Nor Freeski Championships and USASA Nationals.
