World Champion Peter Sagan retains his position atop the individual WorldTour standings following the French WorldTour GP Ouest France-Plouay race won by IAM Cycling's Oliver Naesen. There was no change to the top 12 riders with Alexander Kristoff (Katusha) improving from 19th to 13th after his third place in Brittany.

The GP Ouest France-Plouay was Sagan's first WorldTour race since the Tour de France but it was only a short appearance as Sagan recorded a DNF. It was also his first race since appearing at the Olympic Games for Slovakia in the cross-country.

With 22 WorldTour races now completed for the 2016 season, 203 riders have scored points. Points accumulated in the Vuelta a Espana will be finalised when the race finishes in Madrid in September 11 where Nairo Quintana, Chris Froome, Alejandro Valverde and Alberto Contador are all racing.

The there is no change to the top of the nation standings either as Spain continues to lead Colombia, France, Great Britain, and Australia. In total, 35 nations have scored points across the 2016 WorldTour season with Lithuania bottom on one point.

The Vuelta a España and Eneco Tour are the final stage races on the WorldTour calendar with the one-day GP de Québec, GP de Montréal, Il Lombardia to follow. The final event of the WorldTour is the  Team time trial at the World Championships although the WorldTour teams are set to boycott the October event.
