Lopes and Engen top eliminator World Cup standings

Hypothetical 2012 standings calculated

Although the UCI held three World Cup eliminator rounds in 2012, the organization did not tally an overall World Cup standing. What if there were such standings? Brian Lopes and Alexandra Engen would have won according to xceliminator.com, which tallied hypothetical 2012 World Cup standings based on actual World Cup results.

Among the men, the American rider Lopes accumulated 458 points while Australian Paul Van Der Ploeg earned 425 points, and Austrian Daniel Federspiel got 405 points.

Engen of Sweden collected 580 points to her compatriot Jenny Rissveds 490 points. In third place Eva Lechner of Italy garnered 440 points.

In 2012, the UCI's eliminator World Cups were in Houffalize (Belgium), Nove Mesto (Czech Republic) and La Bresse (France).  The UCI also held its first-ever eliminator world championships in Saalfelden, Austria.

Next season, in 2013, there will be five eliminator UCI World Cup rounds in Albstadt (Germany), Nove Mesto (Czech Republic), Val di Sole (Italy), Vallnord (Andorra) and Hafjell (Norway). There is no official word yet on whether the UCI will tally official World Cup standings in 2013.

Cyclingnews previously reported the hypothetical men's and women's UCI world rankings in the eliminator discipline for 2012.  These were also calculated by xceliminator.com.

World Cup standings for elite men and women are listed below.
