Another week, another AFP World Tour Rankings Update (and in case you missed it, check out last week’s by clicking here), and it’s a significant one, with the third Platinum-Level event of the 2017 AFP World Tour, the first stop of the SFR Freestyle Tour (which was also the first World Cup Slopestyle of the season) in Font Romeu, France (Slopestyle) taking place, alongside the second stop of the always splendid Silver-Level Canadian Open Tour (Slopestyle) at Silverstar Mountain Resort, B.C. Here’s the skinny on how they shook up the AFP World Tour Rankings...
