Stybar leads Nys in rankings

A Belgian is not leading the UCI standings in cyclo-cross, for the first time in what seems like forever. After winning the first round of the World Cup last weekend in Kalmthout, Zdenek Stybar has leap-froged the Belgian Sven Nys to take over the lead in the UCI classification, albeit by only three points. Third place in the rankings is held by Frenchman Francis Mourey, who was also third in Kalmthout.

A consolation for Belgium is that Niels Albert is leading the Under 23 classification who has 60 points, 10 more than the Swiss rider, Julien Taramarcaz with Slovenian, Robert Gavenda.
