After an intense race, Emil Persson, Lager 157 Ski Team, still has 26,400,000 points after winning Marcialonga, the seventh Pro Tour event of Ski Classics Season XIV. 

With the win, Persson keeps the maximum points in the SC Ranking – 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 Astrid Øyre Slind, Team Aker Dæhlie, with 25,587,856 points.
