Dutch cyclist Marianne Vos has taken top honours comfortably in the 2007 UCI road women's rankings. After finishing second in the overall rankings last year, the 20 year-old took a huge step forward this year to take out the title with 1325.66 points.

Vos' nearest rival and last year's winner, Nicole Cooke (GBr), finished the 2007 season with 750 points. In third place is Germany's Judith Arndt, with 709.83 points.

Vos represents a new wave of female cyclists that also includes the young Marta Bastianelli. The Italian, also 20 years old, recently won the World Championships in Stuttgart ahead of her contemporary.

Vos, who was defending her world title, won the UCI Women's Road World Cup this year and is also European U23 champion.
