Sprinters will be more competitive in next year's ProTour, with a new points system to be introduced by the UCI next week benefiting the fast men. The changes will affect stage wins in the grand tours, with 10 points being awarded for a win in a Tour de France stage compared with just 3 this year. In the Giro d'Italia and Vuelta a España, stage winners will gain eight points. In other ProTour stage races, the daily winner will get three points, whereas this year it was just one.
It's expected that the points gained for, e.g. winning a classic (50 points), Tour de France (100 points), Giro or Vuelta (85 points), will not change.
