If I understand this correct, for the actual worldranking includes only races in the time period from Santa Pola 09 to Argentinia´10?
Only Brasi races, one at Miami, may be something downunder and nothing else counts for the world ranking 2010?
Whats about the races from March 2010 (after Argentinia Worlds 2010) to the next Worlds (in 2011 somewhere?) may be held in October 2011?

Quiet a long time period I suggest or not ?

But may be Im wrong.
