After an intense weekend, Emil Persson, Lager 157 Ski Team, now has 26,400,00 points after his back-to-back wins in Grönklitt, the 9th and 10th Pro Tour events of Ski Classics Season XIV. 

With the wins, Persson reached the maximum points in the SC Ranking again – 26,400,000 points. Get to know how the ranking points system works:

In a Pro Tour event, the winning man and woman receive 2.000.000 points; in a Challengers event, the winners collect 500.000 points. The best 12 event points last 24 months are counted in the total points. The man or woman with the most total points will have the #1 rank. 

Podium bonuses are awarded to the top 3 athletes of each gender. A Pro Tour event winner receives 200.000 points, 2nd place 100.000 points, and 3rd place 40.000 points. 

In the SC Ranking, Emil Persson leads the ranking with 26,400,000 points, followed now by Ida Dahl, Team Engcon, with 25,839,023 points.
