Sky top team, Great Britain up to third in nation rankings

Bradley Wiggins is the new leader of the UCI WorldTour after his dominant performance and overall victory at the Tour de France. His Team Sky squad also tops the team ranking, while the success of Wiggins, Mark Cavendish and Chris Froome lifted Great Britain to third place in the nations ranking.

Wiggins now has a total of 601 ranking points after adding the Tour de France to his victories earlier in the season at Paris-Nice, the Tour de Romandie and the Criterium du Dauphiné. He is the first rider to win all four stage races in the same season.

Previous rankings leader Joaquim Rodriguez (Katusha) is now second with 404 points, while Italy’s Vincenzo Nibali of Liquigas-Cannondale moved up to a close third place with 400 points after finishing third overall in the Tour de France.

Belgium’s Tom Boonen of the Omega Pharma-QuickStep team didn't compete in the Tour de France and drops from second to fourth with 368 points while Slovakia’s Peter Sagan of Liquigas-Cannondale, another revelation at the Tour de France after he won three stages and the green points jersey, holds fifth with 351 points. Britain’s Chris Froome - who finished second overall in the Tour de France - was the big mover on the individual rankings as he climbed from 52nd place to sixth and now has a total of 266 points.

Spain and Italy remain in first and second in the nation rankings with 1,136 and 1,084 points respectively, but Great Britain is now a close third at 1,041 points following a very successful Tour de France.

The top four squads on the team ranking remain unchanged with Sky leading Liquigas-Cannondale, Katusha and Omega Pharma-QuickStep, but the British squad has extended its lead to 330 points over Liquigas, 1,318 points to 988.

The UCI WorldTour continues in early August with the Eneco Tour in the Netherlands and Belgium, August 5-12.
