With the Vuelta Ciclista al Pais Vasco stage-race over and Paris-Roubaix fiercely competed, as both races offered 100 points to the winner, the WorldTour rankings have again undergone significant change.

A overall victory to Alberto Contador (Tinkoff-Saxo) in the Basque country sees him retain his individual lead over Fabian Cancellara (Trek Factory Racing) while it was Niki Terpstra (Omega Pharma-Quick Step) who was the big mover in the individual rankings with victory on the pavé.

Thanks to three riders placing in the top-ten at Roubaix, Omega Pharma-Quick Step have established a large lead over the 17 other WorldTour teams with 543 points. Katusha is the next best with 382. Former leader of the team rankings, Ag2r-La Mondiale, are third on 380, just one point ahead of Tinkoff-Saxo.

Spain hold onto top spot in the nations ranking with 605 points with Belgium in second place on 454 points while France round out the podium on 381 points.

The next WorldTour race is Amstel Gold Race on April 20 which is the first of the three Ardennes Classics. On April 23 it is La Flèche Wallonne with the final race of the week, Liège–Bastogne–Liège, taking place on April 27.

The winner of the first two races in the week are awarded 80 points while the winner at Liège is rewarded with 100 points.

The next WorldTour stage race is the Tour de Romandie from April 29 – May 5. Just four days later the first of the three grand tours, the Giro d'Italia, gets under way in Belfast. The result of the Giro is sure to shake up the rankings once again with the winner awarded 170 points.
