Following his phenomenal performance in the Ardennes Classics, Philippe Gilbert has retained his status as the world's No. 1 rider. The Belgian became the first rider ever to win the Brabantse Pijl, Amstel Gold Race, Flèche Wallonne and Liège-Bastogne-Liège in a single season.

Meantime, Australia's Cadel Evans is now ranked third, behind Fabian Cancellara, following his overall win at the Tour of Romandie.
The next three weeks of racing will see no less than 1596 points distributed so there should be some big changes to the current standings. Should Italian Michele Scarponi climb onto the podium at the Giro d'Italia, he should dethrone Gilbert. Meantime, the other threat that looms large is Albert o Contador should he achieve similar results in the year's first grand tour.

In the nations classification Belgium does not score a point but still retains the leadership. Australia has narrowed the gap but it is especially Italy and Spain that are most threatening with the Giro to come. France is still the ninth but Great Britain's Mark Cavendish and Co is on its heels.

HTC-Highroad retains its lead in the teams rankings thanks to the strong performance of Tony Martin, Marco Pinotti at the Tour of Romandie.
