Sagan, Movistar top final UCI WorldTour rankings

Peter Sagan (Tinkoff) was confirmed as the top rider in the UCI WorldTour individual rankings, even though he sat out the final event on the calendar, Il Lombardia, today. Sagan's 60 point lead over Nairo Quintana (Movistar) went uncontested as both the Colombian and third-placed Chris Froome (Sky) sat out the race.

With the individual rankings sewn up, the most important battle on Saturday was for the team rankings, where Movistar held onto its advantage over Tinkoff. Alejandro Valverde finished sixth, earning 40 points, while Tinkoff finished only one rider - Michael Gogl, who was 35th and out of the points.

Movistar boss Eusebio Unzue praised his team for taking their fourth straight title in the teams rankings, and the sixth of the team's history.

"Winning the WorldTour team ranking for the fourth year straight is a good tribute to the consistency by this whole team for the entire season, in both good and bad moments. And it's increasingly difficult to win this, as we always have to beat tremendous groups - Tinkoff or Sky this year - that always excel in every single race," Unzue said.

The team had 36 victories this season, most notably Nairo Quintana's Vuelta a España win and Valverde's win in Flèche Wallonne, in addition to stage wins in all three Grand Tours.

"... Thanks to Nairo Quintana's consistence, Alejandro Valverde's talent or a splendid season by Ion Izagirre, as well as brilliant performances by Rubén Fernández, Andrey Amador and so many others, we could win this classification once again."

At the other end of the rankings, Dimension Data look to be in trouble when it comes to the 2017 WorldTour. Under an agreement with Tour de France organisers ASO, the UCI will only licence 17 teams for the top tier next season, with only the current top 16 guaranteed a spot.

18 teams are expected to fight for the 17 WorldTour spots. Tinkoff and IAM Cycling stop, but Bora-Hansgrohe and Bahrain Merida are likely candidates for WorldTour applications.

With much of the outgoing Tinkoff team's points moving across to Bora-Hansgrohe with Sagan and Rafal Majka, and IAM Cycling's top riders boosting AG2R La Mondiale's rating, plus the new Bahrain-Merida squad capturing points with Vincenzo Nibali, Dimension Data will face an uphill battle to remain in the sport's elite tier.
