Success at the Tour de Suisse has lifted Levi Leipheimer (RadioShack) and Damiano Cunego (Lampre-ISD) into the top 20 of the latest UCI ranking.

Leipheimer snatched victory from the Italian in the final time trial stage on Sunday and scored 100 points for his success. That lifted the veteran American from 73rd to 18th in the individual ranking, with a total of 128 points. Cunego scored 80 points for second place and also scored four points for each of his six days in the leader's yellow jersey. He climbed from 60th to 20th in the ranking, with a total of 123 points. Stage winner and third overall Steven Kruijswijk (Rabobank) also shot up the ranking, moving from 56th to 21st with a new total of 120 points.

Despite not riding the Tour de Suisse, Philippe Gilbert (Omega Pharma-Lotto) still tops the individual ranking thanks to his incredible run of success in the spring Classics.

Gilbert has a total of 356 points, just seven points ahead of Giro d'Italia winner Alberto Contador (Saxo Bank-SunGard). Italy's Michele Scarponi (Lampre-ISD) is a close third with 348 points. Cadel Evans (BMC) is fourth with 314 points, Joaquim Rodriguez (Katusha) is fifth with 288 points and Fabian Cancellara (Leopard Trek), winner of the final time trial stage at the Tour de Suisse, stays in sixth place with a total of 248 points. A total of 173 riders have so far scored points in this year’s ranking.

Spain leads the nations ranking, RadioShack climb to third in teams

Leipheimer's success helped lift RadioShack from fourth to third in the team ranking. The US-registered squad now has a total of 609 points and closed the gap on leaders HTC-Highroad, that has 628 points, and Leopard Trek, that has 613 points. The Saxo Bank-SunGard team slipped to seventh, while Cunego's Lampre-ISD moved up to fourth place. Omega Pharma-Lotto is fifth and BMC is sixth.

Spain still tops the nations ranking with 1000 points. Italy is second with 891 points, Belgium is third with 765 points and Australia is fourth with 748 points.
