Team Sky and Great Britain climb UCI ranking after Wiggins’ Dauphiné win

US squads dominate team ranking, Spain best nation

Bradley Wiggins’s victory at the Criterium du Dauphiné has lifted him to 12th in the UCI individual ranking and also helped Team Sky climb to eighth in the team ranking and Great Britain to seventh in the nations ranking.

Points scored in major races are used to decide the size of teams for the world championships, with only the top ten ranked nations on August 15 allowed to field a nine-rider squad. Great Britain hope Mark Cavendish can win the world championships in Copenhagen on September 25.

Great Britain has a total of 344 points, just a head of France and Switzerland but behind the Netherlands and Germany.

Gilbert still leads individual ranking

Wiggins rose from 31st to 12th in the individual ranking thanks to winning the Criterium du Dauphiné. He has a total of 181 points. However Belgium’s Philippe Gilbert (Omega Pharma-Lotto) still leads the season-long ranking after his hugely successful spring classics campaign. He 356 points, seven more than Giro d’Italia winner Alberto Contador (Saxo Bank-SunGard). Michele Scarponi (Lampre-ISD) is third, just one point behind, after finishing third in the Giro d’Italia.

Cadel Evans (BMC) rose from fifth to fourth after his second place at the Criterium du Dauphiné, while Alexandre Vinokourov (Astana) move up to seventh from 13th after his third place in France.

HTC-Highroad won three stages at the Criterium du Dauphiné thanks to John Degenkolb and Tony Martin and retained the lead in the team ranking. The US-registered team has a total of 624 points. Omega Pharma-Lotto is second with 541 points and Saxo Bank-SunGard is with 513 points. Team RadioShack is fourth and BMC fifth, giving the USA three teams in the top five of the UCI world ranking.

Spain leads the nations ranking after hitting a symbolic total of 1000 points. Italy is a distant second with 860 points and Belgium is third with 765 points.
