Here are the current top 20 in each category after the first two rounds on the UCI World Cup in Fort William and Val di Sole 2013.
So far Gee Atherton is winning by a lead of 138 points over Steve Smith, after two wins in this World Cup. Steve Smith has quite a lead over Brook MacDonald with 90 points. We saw Sam Hill, Danny Hart and Brook MacDonald crash in Val di Sole, so they should be pretty eager to make up for it in the next round. Some varying results for the top 20, highs and lows for all riders, and some tough competition in this category. With four rounds left, riders have time to change who will come out on top, but can Gee stay number one?
Rachel Atherton is dominating with a lead of 120 points over Emmeline Ragot. Brit, Manon Carpenter has only 80 points to catch up with second after a slightly disappointing round in Val di Sole, but she will most likely be back on form in the next round if last year is anything to go by. There is room for change in the overall standings with the women, with mixed results, the next round should prove interesting in this category.
Val di Sole winner, Dean Lucas is looking strong with a lead of 30 points to Noel Niederberger. Top 3 in Juniors are looking on form this season with some podium spots in both rounds. The top 5 are pretty close, and the Junior category has some tough competition this year. GSTAAD Scott rider, Noel Niederberger had a disappointing result in Val di Sole, but after winning in Fort William, his season is looking promising.
