Farrar flies up UCI World rankings after Vattenfall win

Contador still leads individual, but Farrar's win brings US up to eighth

Tyler Farrar's win in the Vattenfall Cyclassics on Sunday saw him jump more than thirty places up the International Cycling Union's (UCI) Individual World rankings, released on Monday.

The Garmin-Slipstream rider had been sitting 57th on the UCI list prior to Sunday's race, but today moved up to 25th as a result of his victory in the ProTour event. The win also saw him move ahead of Lance Armstrong as the United States' most prolific UCI point scorer this season. Farrar has now amassed 153 individual points to Armstrong's 150.

Farrar's movement up the World rankings was also mimicked by the place-getters in the Vattenfall Cyclassics. Runner-up Matti Breschel (Saxo Bank) moved from 64th to 37th, while Gerald Ciolek moved from 109th to 59th.

Australian Allan Davis continued his consistent season on Sunday to finish fourth. The result moved him from 12th to sixth.

Alberto Contador (Astana) continues to lead the individual rankings ahead of Andy Schleck (Saxo Bank) and Roman Kreuziger (Liquigas). The UCI has removed Danilo Di Luca's name from 17th position. The Italian tested positive for EPO-CERA on two seperate occasions during this year's Giro d'Italia. Last week Di Luca was dismissed by his team, LPR-Brakes, after confirmation of the Italian's positive B-sample for the illegal blood booster.

There was little change to the team rankings with Astana still top of the list. Ciolek's podium in Hamburg did see Milram trade places with Cofidis to fill 19th and 20th, respectively.

Spain retained its position at the top of the nation rankings. Though, by virtue of Farrar's Vattenfall win, the United States moved from tenth to eighth. Great Britain and Norway slipped one place each, but remained inside the World's top-ten.

Below is the complete list of the latest UCI World individual, team and nation rankings.
