Peter Sagan Maintains Top Position in WorldTour Standings

PeterSagan_Flanders2016

Following yesterday’s Amstel Gold Race, Peter Sagan continues to hold the top spot in the UCI WorldTour standings, followed closely by his Tinkoff teammate, Alberto Contador.

However, despite winning the Amstel Gold Race for a second time, Enrico Gasparotto wasn’t eligible for any points, by virtue of the fact that he rides for the Pro-Continental level team, Wanty-Groupe Gobert.

Likewise, third place finisher, Sonny Colbrelli, who also rides for the Continental team, Bardiani–CSF, was not eligible for points either.

Thus far, a total of 122 riders have participated in 11 WorldTour races this year, with Sagan as the only one to have accumulated more than 300 points – with 329.

Meanwhile, Contador follows closely behind at 289 points, with BMC’s Richie Porte at 222 points and Team Sky’s Sergio Henao at 204.

As far as team standings are concerned, Tinkoff continues to lead with 741 points, followed by Team Sky at 622 points and BMC with 490. 

In the nation standings, Australia maintains a slight lead over Belgium, with 579 points versus 577 points, with both teams holding more than  100 points over their closest rival, Spain, which has 470 points.

The next race on the WorldTour calendar takes place on Wednesday with La Flèche Wallonne, followed by Liège – Bastogne – Liège on April 24 and the Tour of Romandie stage race from April 26 to May 1.
