Hello again from the Association of Freeskiing Professionals. With spring on the horizon and some of the season’s final marquee events currently underway, it’s time for another update on the AFP World Tour Rankings. As you read this, we’re currently in the process of applying the results from the recently concluded Platinum-Level Freeski World Cup Corvatsch and SFR Freestyle Tour Halfpipe Finals along with the Gold-Level European Freeski Open and Excellent Soldiers to the ledger, but in the meantime, here’s a quick look at how the Gold-Level Calgary NorAm (Slopestyle & Halfpipe) at COP, Alberta and Bronze-Level Nor Freeski Cup (Slopestyle) in Vassfjellet, Norway have shook up the rankings…
We’ll begin with Men’s Slopestyle, where at the Calgary NorAm, Alex Hall took the top spot to remain in 18th, while Max Moffatt rose from 63rd to 58th after scoring second and Matt Wilcox nudged himself one spot up into 99th after taking third. Across the pond at the Nor Freeski Cup, Erik Saeteroy is up 13 spots into 110th after picking up the win, Ferdinand Dahl is up three into 100th thanks to his second place performance, and Vebjorn Svorkmo is up 61 into 129th after rounding out the podium in third.
On the ladies’ side of things, Elena Gaskell bagged her second win of the season at the Calgary NorAm to remain in 16th, Dillan Glennie’s second place finish keeps her in 30th, and Emma Stevens stays in 17th thanks to taking third. At the Nor Freeski Cup, Tora Johnsen is up one spot into 52nd thanks to her victory, second place finisher Elvira Marie Ros is up two into 42nd, and Marina Johansen remains in 36th after securing the third and final step on the podium.
In Men’s Halfpipe, Nico Porteous claimed victory at the Calgary NorAm to bump himself two spots up into 27th, Hunter Hess is up one into 17th thanks to scoring second, and Mitchell Wilson is up three into 38th after taking third.
And in Women’s Halfpipe, Jeanee Crane-Mauzy remains in 11th after her win in Calgary, Rachael Karker stays right behind her in 12th as a result of her second place showing, and Isabelle Hanssen rounded out the podium in third to stay put in 18th.
Last but not least, aside from the general fluctuations as a result of the 52-week rolling system, there are no significant changes to report on the Men’s and Women’s Overall Rankings.
That’s all for now on the AFP World Tour Rankings, but stay tuned for another major update later this week on the results from Freeski World Cup Corvatsch, SFR Freestyle Tour Halfpipe Finals, European Freeski Open, Excellent Soldiers and more.
