Steve Guerdat (SUI), 2012 Olympic Champion, has reclaimed the world number one slot on the Longines Rankings. 

The 36-year-old Swiss rider, who was 140 points off the lead in second place behind Harrie Smolders (NED), has now jumped ahead of the Dutchman with a 55-point advantage in the rankings published today by the FEI. Smolders has been holding on to the world no. one spot for the last seven months. 

Guerdat last topped the world rankings in November 2012 and his return as the highest ranked rider in the world, on 3050 points, follows a series of impressive results including victory in the Rolex IJRC Top 10 Final on home soil in Geneva last month. 

Marcus Ehning (GER), fourth last month, has now switched places with McLain Ward (USA) to sit third on 2936 points. Just like last month, 2017 European Champion Peder Fredricson (SWE) is rank five. 

Daniel Deusser (GER) is up from rank seven to six, while Ben Maher (GBR) also climbs one spot to rank seven. Henrik von Eckermann (SWE) is down two spots to rank eight, Beezie Madden (USA) is up two spots to rank nine and Martin Fuchs (SUI) is down one spot to rank ten.
