The San Sebastián Classic provided Czech rider Roman Kreuziger with an important opportunity to move up in the UCI's World Rankings this weekend. The Liquigas rider, who placed second to Spaniard Carlos Barredo, moved into third overall in the standings behind Tour de France winner Alberto Contador and Saxo Bank's Andy Schleck.

Kreuziger moved up from fifth overall and now, with 310 points, trails Contador by 217. He is only 24 points behind Schleck, who crashed out of the race and injured his back.

Sprint star Mark Cavendish (Columbia-HTC) fell from third to fourth, while Alejandro Valverde (Caisse d’Epargne) moved down to fifth.

Kreuziger has gained points in the last three World Calendar races - the Tour of Switzerland, the Tour de France and the Clásica San Sebastian. His strong performance helped move the Liquigas team into third overall behind Astana and Saxo Bank.
