WorldTour rankings: Rodriguez stays on top, Costa, Schleck and Leipheimer improve

Standings updated prior to start of Tour de France

Joaquim RodriguezWith the Tour de France next on the WorldTour calendar, Katusha rider Joaquim Rodriguez remains on top of the UCI’s rankings but stands to lose points in the weeks ahead. The Catalan has 404 points, 38 more than second-placed rider Tom Boonen (Omega Pharma Quick Step), and a further 69 more than Bradley Wiggins (Sky Procycling).

However both Rodriguez and Boonen will miss the Tour, with both riders preferring to take an alternative programme before competing in the Olympic Games.

This gives Wiggins (335 points) and six of the remaining seven in the current WorldTour top ten a chance to make inroads in July. Also heading to France are Vincenzo Nibali (Liquigas-Cannondale), Peter Sagan (Liquiga-Cannondale), Samuel Sanchez (Euskaltel Euskadi), Simon Gerrans (Orica GreenEdge), Ryder Hesjedal (Garmin Barracuda) and Michael Rogers (Sky Procycling).

Each of those remain in a remarkably stable top ten, with the sole new entrant being Roman Kreuziger (Astana), who improves from seventeenth to tenth as a result of his sixth place in the Tour de Suisse.

Rui CostaOther notable movers are Tour de Suisse winner Rui Costa (Movistar Team), who goes from 34th to 13th and runner-up Frank Schleck (RadioShack Nissan), who rises from 134th to 31st. Last year’s winner Levi Leipheimer (Omega Pharma Quick Step) picked up points for his third overall and is now 37th, improving from 140th and showing that he is getting back on track after sustaining a broken fibula in April.

Teams and nations:

As is the case with the individual rankings, the standings for teams and nations are only marginally affected by the Swiss race. Wiggins’ Sky Procycling, Rodriguez’s Katusha and Liquigas Cannondale remain first second and third in the teams list, while Omega Pharma Quick Step, Astana and Garmin Barracuda continue to fill the rest of the top six.

Michael Albasini’s stage win helps Orica GreenEdge to move up one place to seventh, while Costa’s Movistar team improve from eleventh to eighth.

Spain, Italy, Belgium, Australia, Great Britain and the Netherlands remain in the top six in the nations rankings. The United States is up on place to seventh and Costa’s Portugal moves from thirteenth to tenth.

The next WorldTour update will come after the Tour of Poland (July 10th to 16th) and the Tour de France (June 30th to July 22nd).
