Vincenzo Nibali (Bahrain-Merida) climbed the WorldTour rankings after taking his second ever Il Lombardia title. Nibali had been down in 14th position ahead of the race, but the 500 points available for the win on Saturday was enough for him to ascend to the top-five.

Nibali's Bahrain-Merida squad also moved up a few spots in the team rankings, from 15th to 12th overall.

Above Nibali in the individual rankings, it all looks much the same with Greg Van Avermaet holding firm at the top of the rankings as he has done since the spring. Van Avermaet enjoyed a superb spring that lasted until the Ardennes Classics at the end of April and is 130 points clear of Tour de France and Vuelta a Espana winner Chris Froome.

Giro d'Italia winner and time trial world champion Tom Dumoulin remains in third place with road world champion Peter Sagan just behind him in fourth. Second place finisher Julian Alaphilippe also enjoyed a huge rise up the WorldTour rankings, jumping from 40th to 19th in the standings. He sits one place behind Thibaut Pinot, who was also a big mover after he gained 10 places following Il Lombardia.

Team Sky remains very much in control of the team rankings with a total of 13,014 points, but Quick-Step Floors is keeping them honest with a haul of 12,508. BMC Racing remains in third place over 1,000 points behind while Team Sunweb has held onto their fourth place overall. Movistar, the winner of the last four WorldTour team competitions, moved up a place into fifth after Nairo Quintana earned them 100 points with his top-10 finish in Como, while Trek-Segafredo only took 40 between Bauke Mollema and Peter Stetina.

At the bottom of the standings, Dimension Data remains in 18th place while FDJ was unable to get themselves out of 17th despite Thibaut Pinot's performance. They're still more than 1,000 points behind the next best team Astana.
