Spain moves up to top nation, HTC-Highroad still top team

Philippe Gilbert (Omega Pharma-Lotto) is still number one on the International Cycling Union's WorldTour ranking, with Giro d'Italia winner Alberto Contador of Saxo Bank-SunGard moving him up to a close second place. HTC-Highroad maintains its lead in the team ranking, while Spain moved up to top the national ranks.

Contador's victory in the Giro moved him up from twelfth place to second. He has 349 points to Gilbert's 356. They are closely followed by Michele Scarponi (Lampre) with 348 points.

From there, there is a sharp drop to fourth-placed Fabian Cancellara (Leopard Trek) at 236 points. The Swiss rider dropped from second to fourth, and BMC's Cadel Evans went from third to fifth. Joaquim Rodriguez (Katusha) jumped from thirteenth to sixth, and Vincenzo Nibali made the huge leap from twenty-fourth to seventh. The top ten are rounded out by Matthew Goss (HTC-Highroad), Andreas Klöden (RadioShack) and Tony Martin of HTC-Highroad.

The next points will be awarded in the Criterium du Dauphine (June 5-12) and the Tour de Suisse (June 11-19).

HTC-Highroad maintained its lead in the team ranking with 604 points. Saxo Bank-SunGard moved up from tenth to second place, and Leopard Trek dropped one to third place.

Spain used six stage wins and the Giro title to move to the top of the national rankings from its previous third place. Italy moved from fourth to second, and previous leader Belgium dropped to third.
