With ten WorldTour races already finished this season, Ritchie Porte remains at top of the individual rankings as the only rider to have accumulated more than 300 points.

Meanwhile, John Degenkolb’s recent Paris-Roubaix victory, moved the German rider up into third place, while this month’s Tour of Flanders winner, Alexander Kristoff, holds onto second place.

In the meantime, last week’s Vuelta al Pais Vasco winner, Joaquim Rodriguez, gave his Katusha team a boost in the overall standings, which now occupies third spot.

Following on Porte’s success, as well as Geraint Thomas’ E3 Harelbeke victory and Gent–Wevelgem podium finish, to include Sergio Henao’s second place finish in the Vuelta al Pais Vasco, Team Sky now sits at the top of the WorldTour team rankings.
