Van Avermaet surges to World Rankings lead

Démare rockets rankings, Armitstead regains WorldTour lead

BMC's Greg Van Avermaet took a commanding lead in the UCI World Rankings after his unexpected overall victory in Tirreno-Adriatico and his fifth place in Milan-San Remo.

The Belgian leads Peter Sagan (Tinkoff) by a massive 410 points, with former rankings leader Richie Porte (BMC) dropping to third.

Arnaud Démare (FDJ) parlayed his Milan-San Remo victory into a 126-place leap to seventh, behind Simon Gerrams, Geraint Thomas and Nacer Bouhanni.

The UCI World Rankings will next year be a rolling tally of 12 months of racing, but because the scheme started on January 1 this year, it only takes into account this season's races.

Lizzie Armitstead (Boels Dolmans) resumed her lead in the UCI Women's WorldTour overall rankings. The Trofeo Alfredo Binda victory pushed her back into the lead over Anna van der Breggen (Rabo Liv) by 60 points. Emma Johansson (Wiggle-High5) is third, while Armitstead's teammate Megan Guarnier is fourth.

Jolanda Neff (Servetto Footon) climbed 20 places to eighth after her third place in Cittglio.
