The Rolex One to Watch for February 2011 is the Azerbaijani rider, Jamal Rahimov. Based in Belgium, the 23-year-old jumped from number 469 to 198 during February - a move up the Rolex Rankings of 271 places.
The Rolex One to Watch is a new initiative which identifies the rider who has made the biggest jump within or into the Top 250 of the Rolex Rankings the previous month. Last month it was Spain’s Manuel Anon who received the honors.
Having represented his country at Junior and Young Rider Championships, Rahimov went on to ride at the 2008 Olympic Games. Late in 2009 he won the Grand Prix at the CSI2* event in Paris. 2010 witnessed solid performances by the young Azerbaijani at Arezzo (ITA), Offenburg (GER) and Nantes (FRA). Recent victories include the 2011 CSI2*- W Baku (AZE) Embawood Cup, part of the "Winter Cup" Tournament, which he won with the gelding TOPIC V.V.
March's Rolex One to Watch will be announced at the beginning of April 2011.
