World Jumping Rankings: Beerbaum moves to second place again

Lausanne, 30 November 2000
Rodrigo Pessoa remains the world’s Number One. But Ludger Beerbaum, second to September 2000, when he lost his place to the Olympic Champion Jeroen Dubbeldam, regained this spot. Dubbeldam is third again, Beat Mändli moved up from 8th to 6th place, Marcus Ehning dropped from 7th to 9th place.

Alexandra Ledermann, in 18th position replaced Helena Weinberg as the leading woman rider. A most remarkable jump-forward was achieved by Molly Ashe (USA) who, after two Grand Prix wins in Europe, is now 23rd.

The next World Rankings will be published on 19 December 2000, after the CSI-W Olympia London. They will serve to allocate the starting places in the second half of the Western European World Cup season.
