Boels Dolmans continue to dominate rankings

US national champion Megan Guarnier has extended her lead at the top of the Women's WorldTour rankings following her first Giro Rosa overall victory. The Boels Dolmans rider leads the standings on 886 points while teammate Elizabeth Armitstead remains in second place on 545 points.

Guarnier didn't win a stage of the Giro Rosa this year. She took the lead after stage 1 for one day before re-taking the pink jersey on stage 6 and holding the lead through to the final day Verbania stage. The 31-year-old also won the points classification to confirm she is approaching the Olympic Games in top form and condition.

The victory was Guarnier's third straight at WorldTour level following her Philadelphia International Cycling Classic victory and overall Amgen Tour of California success in May. She also finished on the podium at both Trofeo Alfredo Binda and La Flèche Wallonne Féminine in the Spring.

While world champion Armitstead withdrew from the Giro Rosa due to illness, Guarnier's teammate Evelyn Stevens jumped from ninth to fourth with 484 points on the standings after her second place finish at the Italian stage race. Chantal Blaak is the fourth Boels Dolmans rider in the top-ten, sitting in eighth place on 351 points

With Boels Dolmans dominating the standings, Wiggle High5 have two riders in the top-ten with Elisa Longo Borghini and Emma Johansson, while Rabo Liv are represented by Anna van der Breggen, who is joining Boels Dolmans from 2017, Katarzyna Niewiadoma and Marianne Vos.

On the team standings, Boels Dolmans have accumulated 2537 points, Wiggle-High5 1711 points and Rabo Liv 1411 points. In total, 33 teams have scored points.

In the young rider standings, Rabo-Liv's Polish champion Katarzyna Niewiadoma leads Floortje Mackaij (Liv-Plantur) by 12 points.
