Nys and Kupfernagel top UCI rankings

Sven Nys continues to lead the UCI cyclo-cross rankings, a position he's held for more than a month. Since the previous points tally released on December 23, 2008 Nys has won the eponymous Grote Prijs Sven Nys, maintained his World Cup lead with a sixth place finish in the Zolder, Belgium round, and extended his lead in the Gazet van Antwerpen Trofee standings with a second place finish to Zdenek Stybar in the Azencross Loenhout.

Nys has extended his UCI lead over Bart Wellens, the first of a trio of Fidea Cycling Team members in the top four, who remains in second place position 635 points behind Nys. Wellens' form has steadily improved throughout the season confirmed by a win in the GP de Ster. Kevin Pauwels's position, too, remains unchanged in third place while a pair of wins by Zdenek Stybar has vaulted his position from sixth to fourth.
