Rankings revised after Valverde disqualification

The disqualification of Alejandro Valverde from the UCI's world rankings dropped his Caisse d'Epargne squad from the top of the team rankings down into ninth. The points gained by Joaquin Rodriguez from the Vuelta Ciclista al Pais Vasco were enough to move the tiny Katusha rider into third in the individual rankings and push his team to the top of the standings.

Valverde was removed from the standings after being handed a two-year ban, back-dated to January 1, 2010, by the Court of Arbitration for Sport. His win in the Tour de Romandie, second overall in Pais Vasco and Paris-Nice and a third place in Liège - Bastogne - Liège were among the results taken away from the Spaniard.

Rodriguez, fourth overall in the Basque tour, was promoted to third after Valverde was removed from the runner-up spot. He now sits third in the individual rankings behind new leader Cadel Evans (BMC) and Omega Pharma-Lotto's Philippe Gilbert.

Spain still leads the nations rankings despite the loss of Valverde's 392 points.

Revised rankings as of June 1, 2010
