Although the Top 10 on the Longines Ranking no. 156 stayed pretty much the same, there are as always those who made a real climb outside it. It’s time to take a look at who has been climbing on the latest world ranking that includes validated results from 01.01.2013 to 31.12.2013. First of all: Germany’s Daniel Deusser is making it dangerously close to the Top 10 at the moment, going from strength to strength – currently ranked as nr. 12 in the world. The Netherland’s Maikel van der Vleuten – another rider that jumps to one win after another – is also moving towards the best ten riders in the world, and is now rank fourteen.
Belgium’s Gregory Wathelet has gone up ten ranks; from forty to thirty – while Cassio Rivetti who rides for Ukraine makes yet another move upwards to become rank 31 compared to his rank 37 last month. Jeroen Dubbeldam goes from 48 to 42, while France’s Michel Hecart climbs from 54 to 46, Nicola Philippaerts jumps from 57 to 49 and John Whitaker takes himself to rank 50 after being rank 68 last month.
Belgium’s Pieter Devos helps this month’s Longines Ranking to be a good one for Belgium, going up ten places to rank 53 – and then Kamal Bahamdan flies up from rank 76 to 61. Not surprisingly, Aymerick de Ponnat goes up from rank 98 to 72 following his tremendous results lately. Switzerland’s Paul Estermann goes from rank 80 to 73, Canada’s Tiffany Foster from 94 to 80 and Germany’s Max Kühner from 102 to 89. Belgium’s Philippe Le Jeune also breaks into the top 100, going from 123 to 91 as does Wout-Jan van der Schans who climbs up to rank 97 this month.
