SuperTour Power Rankings 12/8

With the end of another exciting weekend of SuperTour racing in Bozeman, Mont. comes a new FasterSkier SuperTour Power Ranking that exhibits little change from last week’s list. However there’s a new men’s leader in Matt Gelso, and the women are loosing ground to a strong Rosie Brennan.

Notes regarding this week’s ranking:

– If you aren’t talking about Rosie Brennan you should be. She’s won the past three races in convincing form and doesn’t show any signs of stopping. She has a 36-point lead in the points list that will be hard for her competitors to erase. However, with double points on the line at the US Cross Country Championships in Houghton, Michigan, a spot on the World Cup in period two is not a given for Brennan.

– Last week we said Caitlin Gregg made a smart move resting before racing the Lillehammer World Cup mini tour, as she had a better chance of earning World Cup points in disciplines that favor her strengths. Long story short, it didn’t happen. However, it didn’t happen for many usually-strong US women either.

– Last week we noted the fact that all three men of the Sun Valley Gold Team were in the Power Rankings. They’ve further solidified their positions after Bozeman, with Matt Gelso taking over the top spot and teammate Miles Havlick just behind in second.

– Like Caitlin Gregg, Reese Hanneman wasn’t able to do much in the World Cup mini tour in Lillehammer, Norway. If he can improve in Davos this weekend, he’ll be able to maintain his spot in the rankings.

  1. ‘However, with double points on the line at the US Cross Country Championships in Houghton, Michigan, a spot on the World Cup in period two is not a given for Brennan.’

    I thought Nationals is part of Period II and hence Rosie already has her start spot for Period II? At least that is how this doc has it-http://ussa.org/sites/default/files/documents/athletics/nordic/2014-15/documents/2014-2015%20SuperTour%20Schedule_1.pdf

    Granted, she will be skiing Nationals anyways in order to make the World Champs team, but I would think she might be able to start the Estonia or Russia World cups?
