Merced, CA JULY 09, 2014; Centurion Pro Skiers Brian Detrick and Nick Parsons have moved into the Top 10 of slalom skiing’s elite. They both started the 2014 season ranked in the Top 20 in the World on the IWWF World Ranking List. Detrick is currently ranked 8th and Parsons is 10th according to International Waterski and Wakeboard Federation (IWWF). Both have had a great season competing and training behind the Centurion Carbon Pro, arguably the world’s finest three-event ski boat. Detrick’s performances have moved him up ten places on the IWWF Elite Skier List since the onset of the 2014 season. The Elite Skier List is determined solely by tournament performances.

Paul Crawford, Centurion’s Director of Three Event Skiing said, “Brian is skiing really well right now. I’ve watched Brian develop through the boys and junior’s ranks, always knowing that he had the talent and skills to make it as a top-notch professional slalom skier and he’s there now! Centurion is proud to have a quality skier like Brian using our boat to perform at such an elite level.”

For the 2014 season, Brian Detrick placed second at the Australian Open and at the prestigious Moomba Masters he took third, both scores helped him improve his Elite Skier World ranking.

Nick Parsons has also earned a higher entry on the illustrious IWWF Elite Skier list, presently listed as 10th. Parsons started the season 11th on the list and his performances thus far have helped him move into the top ten with Detrick.

There are still plenty of competitions left on the 2014 calendar and it will be very exciting to see where these two men take their skiing in the world arena. Centurion’s Carbon Pro was released in 2011 as the sports’ most recent completely redesigned three-event towboat. With its revolutionary design, skiers everywhere have found their personal best behind the Carbon Pro. To date, 131 best scores recorded behind the Carbon Pro. These scores were not attainable prior to the athlete’s introduction to the Carbon Pro.
