Health Net dominates US NRC standings

USA Cycling's latest standings in its year-long National Racing Calendar Series shows the Health net presented by Maxxis team firmly on tip of both the men's individual and team rankings, while the women's competition is more of a three-cornered fight between the T-Mobile, Webcor and Quark teams.

After his stage win and overall victory at Cascade Classic at the weekend, Health Net's Scott Moninger moves to the top of the men's individual rankings ahead of team-mate Chris Wherry. Their team-mate Gord Fraser completes the top three, with Danny Pate (Jelly Belly/Pool Gel) and Australian Karl Menzies (Advantage Benefits/ Endeavor) in fifth. Moninger and Wherry both have over 1000 points in the series, while Fraser is on 971. With Pate on 781 and Menzies on 657, the gulf between Health net and the rest of the US domestic peloton is considerable.

In the women's rankings things are much closer with just 37 points separating Christine Thorburn (Webcor Builders), Ina-Yoko Teutenberg (T-Mobile) and Tina Pic (Quark Cycling). The top five is rounded out by Kristin Armstrong (T-Mobile) and Laura Van Gilder (Quark Cycling).

Health Net also dominates the men's team standings with 4200 points, against Colavita/Sutter home's 1920. In the women's teams T-Mobile leads Quark.
