SUP World Rankings End of May

We had several races this week but not too many moved the needle on the top 10 rankings. The Madeira SUP Challenge had a rather small turn out but a few know names. Madeira received a 2-Star ranking. The next race we were looking at was the SUP Race Cup in St. Maxime. This was once THE biggest race in Europe and one of the most important ones as well. Now the race is pretty much a french national race without a big international turn out. This race received a 1-Star rating.

One race that did end up going into the rankings was the Barion SUP Race (1-Star) almost 2 weeks ago. This race did make a small difference in the top 10 rankings, mainly for Davide Alpino who is now in the top 10.

We once again need to stress our surprise that we do not see more sprint races. There was one sprint race on Mai 20th that got in to the rankings. The Snowboardel Paddle Fest Hostival in the Czech Republic made it into the rankings and shuffled things up a bit.

Men Longdistance

Due to the Madeira SUP Challenge we did see some movement but not much. Christian Andersen did well with a 3rd place and moved back into the top 10 to number 6. We also see Davide Alpino in the top 10 due to his win at the Barion SUP Race a week before Madeira.

Sprint Race

The most inactive race category is the print race. We do not understand why sprint races are not part of an SUP event. This is actually the easiest category to hold a race in and its very spectator friendly. Due to a race we never heard of or got any info about we now do have a bit of movement in that ranking: The Snowboardel Paddle Fest Hostivař in the Czech Republic.
