BMC's Richie Porte, 32 today, has retained his position atop the UCI WorldTour rankings following his 21st place at the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race with a haul of 672 points. His BMC team drop to second on the team standings with Orica-Scott taking over with a lead of 951 points to 867 points.

The Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race was the first one-day race on the WorldTour calendar this year and also the first new WorldTour event to be held.

Victory for Nikias Arndt handed the Team Sunweb rider 300 points with Simon Gerrans picking up 250 points for second place. As he was riding for the national team, Cam Meyer's third place was not rewarded with WorldTour points.

Tour Down Under runner-up behind Porte, Orica-Scott's Esteban Chaves stays in second place on 422 points with Nathan Haas jumping over Jay McCarthy and into third place on 295 points. In total, 78 riders have now scored at least one WorldTour point.

Thanks to Arndt's win on Sunday, Team Sunweb was the biggest mover in the team standings, improving from 11th to fourth. Astana remain bottom after two events with just 30 points. Of the 18 teams, 14 have scored more than 100 points.

The next race on the calendar is the Abu Dhabi Tour (February 23-26) where the winner will be awarded 300 points. The first WorldTour race on European soil is Omloop Het Nieuwsblad on February 25 with 300 points also going to the winner.

The race with the most points on offer this season is the Tour de France where the winner will be awarded at least 1000 points.
