Despite not racing since Liège-Bastogne-Liège in April, and Tom Dumoulin picking up 850 points for his Giro d'Italia win, Greg Van Avermaet (BMC) remains clear on top of the individual UCI WorldTour rankings.

Van Avermaet has led the individual rankings since E3 Harelbeke while Quick-Step Floors have been the top team since Dwars door Vlaanderen.

Team Sunweb's Dumoulin was one of the biggest movers on the rankings as he won the first stage of his professional career. Nairo Quintana's second place at the Giro sees the Movistar rider move into sixth place on 1536, while Vincenzo Nibali (Bahrain-Merida) moves into 21st after his third place on 744 points.

After 22 WorldTour events in 2017, 376 riders have scored points

Dumoulin's points haul also helped Team Sunweb to seventh on the team standings on 3921 points but well behind Quick-Step Floors who continue to dominate the rankings. The Belgian team are out in front with 8540 points while BMC Racing remains second on 6613 points. At the other end of the standings, Dimension Data are bottom on just 1505 points. Astana is the only other team with less than 2000 points on 1636.

The WorldTour event on the calendar is the Critérium du Dauphiné (June 4-11), followed by the Tour de Suisse (June 10-18) and Tour de France which offers 1000 points to the overall winner.
