AFP World Tour Rankings Update - December 20th

Dec 20, 2016

Words: Jeff Schmuck

With the Holiday season on the horizon, it’s high time for another AFP World Tour Rankings Update, as the second Platinum-Level event of the 2016/2017 season, the first of two U.S. Grand Prix’s, took place at Copper Mountain, Colorado this past weekend. Here’s a look at how this Halfpipe-only event shook up the AFP World Tour Rankings…

U.S. GRAND PRIX @ COPPER MOUNTAIN
Sanctioning Level: Platinum
Discipline: Halfpipe

U.S. Grand Prix Women's Halfpipe Podium: Devin Logan (3rd), Marie Martinod (1st), Annalisa Drew (2nd)

Women’s Halfpipe

1) Marie Martinod: 5th —> 3rd (+ 2)
• Martinod’s win (and the 1000 points that came with it) counts towards her top 4 Halfpipe results over the past 52 weeks, and eclipses her result from last year’s Dew Tour (which has now dropped off the 52-week window), so she moves two spots up.
2) Annalisa Drew: 5th —> 4th (- 1)
• Drew’s second place showing counts towards her top 4 Halfpipe results, but due to Martinod’s win allowing her to overtake Drew in the rankings, she drops one spot.
3) Devin Logan: 6th —> 6th (EVEN)
• Logan’s third place performance counts towards her top 4 Halfpipe results, but does not secure her enough points to overtake the amount of points Cassie Sharpe has accumulated over the past 52 weeks, so she remains in sixth.
4) Ayana Onozuka: 2nd —> 2nd (EVEN)
• The amount of points Onozuka obtained (874.66) with her fourth place finish does not eclipse her top 4 Halfpipe results, so she remains in second.
5) Janina Kuzma: 7th —> 7th (EVEN)
• Kuzma’s result counts towards her top 4 Halfpipe results, but does not secure her enough points to overtake the amount of points Devin Logan has accumulated over the past 52 weeks, so she remains in seventh.
6) Carly Margulies: 12th —> 11th (+ 1)
• Margulies’ result counts towards her top 4 Halfpipe results, so she moves one spot up.
7) Saori Suzuki: 25th —> 13th (+ 12)
• Suzuki’s result counts towards her top 4 Halfpipe results (and is her fourth event in the past 52 weeks), so she moves 12 spots up.
8) Sabrina Cakmakli: 52nd —> 38th (+ 14)
• Cakmakli’s result counts towards her top 4 Halfpipe results (and is her second event in the past 52 weeks), so she moves 14 spots up.
9) Jeanee Crane-Mauzy: 10th —> 10th (EVEN)
• Crane-Mauzy’s result counts towards her top 4 Halfpipe results, but does not secure her enough points to overtake the amount of points Anais Caradeux has accumulated over the past 52 weeks, so she remains in 10th.
10) Abigale Hansen
• Hansen’s result counts towards her top 4 Halfpipe results (and is her third event in the past 52 weeks), so she moves 14 spots up.

U.S. Grand Prix Men's Halfpipe Podium: Aaron Blunck (3rd), Kevin Rolland (1st), Ben Valentin (2nd)

Men’s Halfpipe

1) Kevin Rolland: 1st —> 1st (EVEN)
• Rolland’s win counts towards his top 4 Halfpipe results, so he remains atop the leader board in first.
2) Ben Valentin: 2nd —> 2nd (EVEN)
• Likewise, Valentin’s second place showing counts towards his top 4 Halfpipe results, but does not secure him enough points to overtake Rolland’s lead, so he remains in second.
3) Aaron Blunck: 3rd —> 3rd (EVEN)
• Blunck’ third place performance also counts towards his top 4 Halfpipe results, but does not secure him enough points to overtake the amount of points Valentin has accumulated over the past 52 weeks, so he remains in third.
4) Byron Wells: 4th —> 4th (EVEN)
• Wells’ fourth place finish counts towards his top 4 Halfpipe results, but does not secure him enough points to overtake the amount of points David Wise has accumulated over the past 52 weeks, so he remains in seventh.
5) Birk Irving: 23rd —> 18th (+ 5)
• Irving’s result counts towards his top 4 Halfpipe results, and eclipses his result from last year’s Dew Tour, so he moves two spots up.
6) Miguel Porteous: 12th —> 11th (- 1)
• Porteous’ result counts towards his top 4 Halfpipe results, but due to other athletes (namely Gus Kenworthy) now having a higher amount of accumulative points as a result of last year’s Dew Tour results dropping off the 52-week window, he drops one spot on the Global Rankings, but remains in first on the Junior Rankings.
7) Alex Ferreira: 6th —> 5th (- 1)
• The amount of points Ferreira obtained (808.85) with his seventh place finish does not eclipse his top 4 Halfpipe results, and replaces his third place performance at last year’s Dew Tour, so he drops one spot.
8) Joel Gisler: 24th —> 17th (+ 7)
• Gisler’s result counts towards his top 4 Halfpipe results, so he moves seven spots up.
9) David Wise: 7th —> 6th (- 1)
• The amount of points Wise obtained (775.18) with his result does not eclipse his top 4 Halfpipe results, and replaces his victory at last year’s Dew Tour, so he drops one spot.
10) Gus Kenworthy: 12th —> 8th
• Kenworthy’s 10th place finish counts towards his top 4 Halfpipe results, is his fourth result in the past 52 weeks, and eclipses his 21st place result from last year’s Dew Tour by 160.67 points, so he moves eight spots up.
