3. Rolf Sørensen (probably doping)
4. Matti Breschel
5. Bo Hamburger (doping)
6. Jakob Fuglsang
7. Jakob Piil
8. Chris Anker Sørensen
9. Nicki Sørensen
10. Lars Bak

New up an coming talents are Rasmus Guldhammer, and even newer are S (something with S, don't remember his name. :-). :-), Mathias Lisson
