Brazilian rider Pedro Veniss maintained his Latino Ranking leadership for seventh month in a row, reaching 1,910 points this time.

For the Gold Pan American medalist Pedro Veniss, the December month was not very productive with a seventh place as his best result in the CSI5* Geneva week, a position he held in the Rolex Grand Prix, decreasing 90 points with respect to the last measurement.

While Pedro Veniss maintains a good advantage over the majority of the Latino riders, where he dropped from 36th place to 39th in the Longines World Ranking, this time his fellowman and former Latino Ranking leader Marlon Modolo Zanotelli is dangerously close with 1,855 points.

In case of Marlon Modolo Zanotelli obtained this month a second place in the CSI4* week of Stockholm and a third place in the CSI2* Lier, both results with the 13-year-old stallion Rock’N Roll Semilly (Diamant de Semilly x Apache D’Adriers), establishing itself with the step of each measurement and very close to recovering his leadership that he held for more than a year and a half.

On the other hand, Carlos López from Colombia maintained his third place, marking a clear trend in the rest of the Ranking, which did not suffer major changes compared to last month.

Completed the Top 10 Yuri Mansur of Brazil maintaining his fourth place, like Samuel Parot of Chile in fifth, Santiago Lambre of Mexico in sixth, Brazilian Rodrigo Lambre in seventh, Patricio Pasquel of Mexico in eighth, ninth Juan Manuel Luzardo from Uruguay and Nicolás Pizarro from Mexico in tenth place.

For the Top 20, things did not vary much either with Mexico’s Francisco Pasquel remaining in his 11th place, Emanuel Andrade of Venezuela continuing 12th and Brazilian Eduardo Menezes in box 12th. Mexicans Jaime Azcárraga and Eugenio Garza did not moved from 13th and 14th place, raising Cassio Rivetti from Brazil a step up when Alberto Michán from Mexico left the Latino Ranking and passes to defend Israel, Fernando Martinez Sommer from Mexico managed to climb two places to 16th, Dayro Arroyave of Colombia ran same luck from 19th to 18th, while entered to the Top 20 classified Felipe Ramos Guinato of Brazil occupying 19th place and Luis Alejandro Plascencia of Mexico ranked 20th.
