The Netherlands have replaced Germany at the top of the International Cycling Union's (UCI) women's national world rankings, released this week.

Germany dropped back into second spot in the ranking as a result of the strong performances of Dutch riders and a roll over of UCI points from results older than 12 months.

Dutchwomen Marianne Vos (DSB Bank – LTO) and Kirsten Wild (Cervélo TestTeam) completed a one-two finish for their nation in Sunday's Swedish round of the women's World Cup at the Open de Suède Vargarda.

The Netherlands now have 2942 points, 40 points ahead of Germany (2902).

Sweden replaced Italy in third place on the ranking following the consistent performances of current World Cup leader Emma Johansson. The Red Sun Cycling Team rider hasn't finished outside the top five in any of this year's eight World Cup rounds.

Below is the complete list of the UCI's latest national world rankings for women:
