FEI Gandini World Jumping Riders Rankings

Most of the riders in the Top Ten could replace their high amount of dropped points from December 2000, thanks to their good results in December 2001.

Ludger Beerbaum (GER) celebrates the first anniversary of his undisputed leadership in the FEI Gandini Rankings with 3224 points, 761 more than runner-up, the Brazilian Rodrigo Pessoa, who moves up from the third to second place. Ludo Philippaerts (BEL) is now third.

Only Willi Melliger (SUI) could not replace the 350 points he was losing in December. Due to back problems he had to decline the invitation to the Top Ten Final on 8 December in Geneva. He therefore goes down one place and is now 6th.
Rolf-Göran Bengtsson (SWE) continues his smooth progression and goes up from 8th to 7th place. He earned 135 points in Geneva, 180 in Paris, where he won the Grand Prix, and 45 in Amsterdam.

Jos Lansink (BEL) was kicked off the Top Ten and is now 12th. Jan Tops makes a spectacular jump from 31st to 17th place thanks to his excellent performances in Geneva (100 points), Amsterdam (50), Berlin (70) and Paris (120). Good progression also by Toni Hassmann (GER), from 25th to 19th place.

The best lady rider for the second consecutive month is Beezie Madden-Patton (USA) at the 14th place, closely followed by Leslie Howard (USA) who moves up from 26th to 16th place.
