Men’s WorldTour Rankings

9306d7a2d37dc497afb61e2419bfb05deb72f290

Following his third place finish in the overall classification in last weekend’s Paris-Nice, Richie Porte (BMC) has moved up into the top position in the individual WorldTour rankings, eclipsing fellow Australian rider, Simon Gerrans (Orica-GreenEdge).

Second place at the Tour Down Under and third at Paris-Nice was enough for Porte to jump to 159 points and take a clear lead in the individual standings.

Meanwhile, Team Sky’s Sergio Henao moved into second place with 115 points, with his sixth place finish in Paris-Nice and third place finish in the overall standings in the Tour Down Under, propelling the Colombian rider in the standings. 

Geraint Thomas’ overall win at Pairs-Nice, saw Team Sky move up into the top slot in the teams WorldTour rankings, outscoring Orica-GreenEdge. However, Australia remains in the number one spot as the top nation in the rankings.

Team Sky’s performance in Paris-Nice earned enough points, to see the British team move into first place with 227 points, while bumping Orica-GreenEdge into second place on 171 points, closely followed by BMC on 166 points.

Thomas himself, now ranks in fourth place in the individual standings, while Alberto Contador’s second place finished at Paris-Nice, moved the Spanish rider into fifth place.

With 367 points, Australia has a commanding lead in the nation standings with Spain a distant second at the early-stages of the season on 199 points. Great Britain (145) and Colombia (115) are the only other nations to have reached triple figures. Of the 18 nations to have scored points, Slovenia and the Czech Republic are down the bottom on one a piece.

The WorldTour rankings will likely change again after the conclusion of the Tirreno-Adriatico on Tuesday, which will be followed by this year’s first one-day classic in the WorldTour calendar, Milan–San Remo, on March 19.
