Botero moves up ProTour rankings

With his second place overall in the Dauphin Libéré to go with his Tour de Romandie win, Santiago Botero (Phonak) has moved up to fifth in the ProTour rankings, netting 93 points so far this season. The white jersey is still held by Danilo Di Luca (Liquigas-Bianchi), who has 184 points and doesn't look like losing his lead anytime soon. Tom Boonen (Quick.Step, 112 pts), Alessandro Petacchi (Fassa Bortolo, 111 pts), and Oscar Freire (Rabobank, 94 pts) occupy the next three places behind Di Luca.

Other beneficiaries from the Dauphin Libéré include overall winner Iñigo Landaluze (Euskaltel), who has slotted himself into 20th with 50 points, and Alexandre Vinokourov (T-Mobile), who won a stage and finished fifth overall, moving himself up from 19th to 10th on the ProTour rankings.
