FEI/GANDINI WORLD JUMPING RIDERS RANKINGS
Few changes in Top 10, Beerbaum leads the rankings
Two weeks before the World Cup Final, Ludger Beerbaum leads the rankings with a
comfortable amount of 653 points more than Rodrigo Pessoa. Markus Fuchs, who
has not earned any points since Geneva CSI-W in December 2000, lost his third
position in favour of Lars Nieberg. Hugo Simon enters the Top 10. There are
only a few changes in the Top 10, as several important shows had to be
cancelled due to Foot and Mouth Disease (Grenoble and Moorsele CSI-A,
s¹Hertogenbosch and Oviedo World Cups).
Jessica Kurten won 107 points in Paris and Dortmund and goes up from 27th to
19th rank. She is getting closer to Leading lady rider Alexandra Ledermann,
still ranked 17th. Another successful woman is the Swiss Dehlia Oeuvray, who
won 171 points in California and jumps up from 104th to 65th place.
