Sweden’s Olympic team gold medallist, double world champion and European team champion Henrik von Eckermann tops the Longines Ranking for a 17th consecutive month – leading the way with 3386 points. The top three remain the same as last month with reigning Olympic champion Ben Maher (GBR) as rank two increasing his points to 3250 points, followed by Kent Farrington (USA) as rank three on 3119 points. Steve Guerdat (SUI) jumps up from rank five to four on 3037 points, followed by Martin Fuchs (SUI) who drops one spot down to rank five with his 2945 points.

Julien Epaillard (FRA) is up from rank seven to six, swapping with McLain Ward (USA). Simon Delestre (FRA) stays as rank eight, as does Max Kühner (AUT) as rank nine while Shane Sweetnam (IRL) jumps up from rank eleven to ten – pushing Harrie Smolders (NED) out of this prestigious list.

This month's ranking includes validated results from 1 December 2022 to 30 November 2023.



* The Longines Ranking counts a rider’s 30 best results over a twelve month period – beginning on 1 January with the carryover of the total number of points which have been accumulated during the previous year until 31 December. At the end of each month, the points earned during that month are added to the list, while the points from the same month in the previous year are dropped. 

Points are distributed based on the level of the competition (from 1.45m to 1.60m), the prize money available, and whether it is an individual or a team competition – according to a table in the Longines Ranking Rules.

Points obtained at Games and Championships are retained on the list depending on the frequency of the events, as regulated in art. 2 of the Longines Ranking Rules.
