The Italian Antonio Cairoli, who, despite the 7th place at the Swedish Grand Prix, has 631 points in his account, is still confidently leading in the overall standings of the World Cup. Jeffrey Herlings (Holland) is the second with 530 points and Gautier Paulin (France) is the third with 526 points. Tim Gajser is the fifth with 453 points in the current ranking.
