Peter Sagan continues to prove the curse of the rainbow jersey is a fallacy as he surged to the lead of both the UCI WorldTour and World Rankings thanks to his back-to-back victories in Gent-Wevelgem and the Tour of Flanders. The wins reversed a trend of second-place finishes that tallied six before he finally reached the top step on the podium in Belgium.

In the World Rankings, which comprises points from all UCI races on the WorldTour and Continental calendars from January 1, 2016, Sagan leads Fabian Cancellara (Trek-Segafredo) by a huge margin, 2145 to 1407. Greg Van Avermaet (BMC) is third with 1338.

In the WorldTour rankings, which only takes into account WorldTour events, Sagan leads Richie Porte (BMC) with 329 points to Porte's 222. Alberto Contador (Tinkoff) is third with 171.

In 2017, the UCI World Rankings will begin to accumulate on a rolling 12-month window.
