Compton leads, Powers, Johnson next behind Stybar

Thanks to a revision of the UCI's cyclo-cross points system and a strong early-season showing on the North American calendar, US riders are stacked near the top of the UCI's first published cyclo-cross world ranking.

Katie Compton, winner of the first World Cup round and undefeated in six starts, leads the women's rankings. While world champion Zdenek Stybar, also undefeated over six straight races, leads a pair of Americans in the men's standings. 

Cannondale-Cyclocrossworld duo Jeremy Powers and Tim Johnson are second and third after a series of domestic wins. The top Belgian, Sven Nys, is down in sixth overall, behind Frenchman Francis Mourey and American Ryan Trebon.

The UCI revised its points system for the 2010-2011 season, increasing the number of points available to C1 and C2 classified races while reducing the amount of points given in the World Cup events. All World Cup points will be included in the tally, but only a rider's top five C2 races and top six C1 finishes count toward the overall standings. The US riders have started strong but we can expect the European men to have an advantage as their intense and race-packed season goes on.

On the women's side, Compton resumed her position as the top-ranked woman in the world, having also led the rankings early in last year's season. Back to back wins in the USGP Planet Bike Cup, the triple victories in the UCI3 weekend in Ohio, and the World Cup gold in Aigle, Switzlerland this weekend vaulted the American into the top spot over compatriot Laura Van Gilder.

Czech Katarina Nash holds the third spot over Aigle runner-up Daphny Van Den Brand.
