Niewiadoma rides high in Women's WorldTour rankings

After a dream week at the Women's Tour, Katarzyna Niewiadoma (WM3 Pro Cycling) has scaled the Women's WorldTour rankings to first place. The Polish champion jumped clear of Anna van der Breggen (Boels Dolmans) after taking the opening stage and leading the race from start to finish.

Niewiadoma now leads the Women's WorldTour by 42 points over Van der Breggen. Coryn Rivera (Team Sunweb), who was not at the race, has held her third place with Annemiek van Vleuten (Orica-Scott) remaining in fourth. In fact, aside from Niewiadoma's surge to the top, there have been no changes in the top 10.

A little further back, riders such as Ellen van Dijk (Team Sunweb) and Hannah Barnes (Canyon-SRAM) have made some good progress. Van Dijk is now knocking on the door of the top 10 after starting the week in 18th, while Barnes has ascended 31 spots to 14th. Her sister Alice enjoyed a strong week and has moved into second place in the youth standings, bumping Drops' Anna Christian into third. She trails classification leader Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig by 16 points. Uttrup Ludwig has led the competition right from the off following her top-10 finish at the opening round of Strade Bianche.

With Amy Pieter's stage win at the Women's Tour and second place overall with Christine Majerus, Boels Dolmans maintained their spot atop the team competition leaderboard. The Dutch outfit increased their lead by seven points, giving them an advantage of 613 points going into the next round of racing. With Niewiadoma's haul and a few from Marianne Vos before she crashed out of the race, WM3 Pro Cycling moved themselves up to fifth place. 

The Women's WorldTour will resume in just a few weeks' time with the Giro Rosa. The one and only Grand Tour on the women's calendar, the race will have 10 stages and will begin on June 30 with a team time trial in Aquileia and finish on July 9 in Torre del Greco.
