Re: Milan Entry List/Fact Sheet (updated October 19, 2017)

Can someone please explain how those rankings for the Race To Milan work?

Like why does Hyeon Chung have only 760 points registered on Race To Milan, but 844 on Race To Nitto? Then Donaldson has 888 on Race To Nitto and 890 to Milan, and Medvedev has 727 to Nitto and 772 to Milan - wth?! Lol I seriously don't understand how this is possible or how it works.

Chung should be ahead of Medvedev on the Race To Milan and really hoping he qualifies and makes the field more diverse. But that's quite a big difference between the 2 Races and I really don't understand why this is.

Race to London starts after Paris 2016 (excluding the finals).

Race to Milan starts 2017.
