Maksim Burtasov takes the leading position in the standing of the Cup of Russia, but a sportsman from Yugra Vadim Filimonov still has a chance to outrank him.
The leader of the women’s rating Ekaterina Yurlova-Perkht from St. Petersburg misses the championship of Russia and leaves chances for the first place to Svetlana Mironova. To do this the representative of Sverdlovsk Oblast should get on the podium in each of the three races. Victoria Slivko and Irina Starykh from Tyumen Oblast will compete for the third place. Tamara Voronina from Sverdlovsk Oblast takes the leading position in the overall standings of the Russian Cup with a gap of more than 100 points.
