Just 60 points below, in number 13, are Montreal champions Melissa Humana-Paredes & Brandie Wilkerson. The Canadians netted the entire 1,200 points earned in the home sand and, after only six appearances on Tour, improved to 5,280, leaping 13 spots up in comparison to last week.
Fourth-placed Katja Stam & Raisa Schoon of the Netherlands also improved their ranking, climbing from number six to number five.
Among the four women’s teams that finished the Montreal Elite16 with a fifth-place result, Agatha Bednarczuk & Rebecca Cavalcanti made the highest upward jump of 20 spots, from 64th to 44th.
The men’s winners in Montreal, Norway’s Anders Mol & Christian Sorum, did not gain in terms of positions, as they have already been the world’s number one team for 44 straight weeks, but net-gained 200 of the 1,200 points earned to improve to 9,300 and widen the distance to second-ranked Swedes David Ahman & Jonatan Hellvig to as many as 2,060 points.
