Post-Tour ProTour rankings

His victory in the Tour de France has moved Lance Armstrong into second place behind Italian Danilo Di Luca in the UCI's season-long ProTour ranking. Of course, Sunday was Armstrong's last day in the saddle as a professional cyclist, so Di Luca's lead is under no threat from the seven-time Tour champ who accumulated 109 points during the Tour for his overall win, and stage victories. There were 100 ProTour points for the overall win in the Tour, plus points for the first three placings in each stage, and Armstrong's tally moved him up from 49th in the competition.

Jan Ullrich and Ivan Basso also rocketed up the rankings as a result of their Tour podium finished. Ullrich goes from 34th to 6th and Basso from 80th to 12th. Alexandre Vinokourov also moves up, taking third place after his hard-fought fifth Tour spot.
