Sky extends team lead, Spain remains top nation

Chris Froome (Team Sky) moved up to sixth place in the UCI WorldTour rankings thanks to his overall victory at the Tour de Romandie on Sunday.

Switzerland's Fabian Cancellara (RadioShack-Leopard) still leads the individual ranking with 351 points after his dominance in the cobbled Classics. Peter Sagan (Cannondale Pro Cycling) is second with 312 points and recent Liège-Bastogne-Liège winner Dan Martin (Garmin-Sharp) is third with 247 points.

Froome led the Tour de Romandie from start to finish. He won the hilly prologue time trial, then controlled the attacks in the hills thanks to the work of his teammates, before making his own move on stage 4 to set up overall victory. Froome finished third in the final individual time trial stage behind world champion Tony Martin but had a final winning margin of 54 seconds on Slovenian Simon Spilak (Katusha) and 1:49 on Portugal's Rui Costa (Movistar Team). It was Froome's first overall victory in a UCI WorldTour stage race.

Froome scored a total of 112 points at the Tour de Romandie: 100 for overall victory, and the other 12 for stage results. He moved up from 21st to sixth place in the individual rankings and now has a total of 198 points in the season-long standings.

Froome helped Team Sky extend its lead in the team ranking, with Richie Porte's fifth place in the individual ranking and Sergio Henao's ninth place, giving the British squad the top spot with a total of 751 points. The Katusha team is second with 655 points, while Movistar is third with 536 points.

Spain continues to lead the nations rankings, with 697 points. Colombia is second with 491 points and Great Britain rose from ninth to third and now has a total of 421 points.
