Despite Team Sky’s poor placing yesterday, their ninth place finish was enough to keep them in third spot in the WorldTour rankings.

In addition, Etixx-QuickStep also managed to hold onto their fourth place position.

Meanwhile, as a result of their victory yesterday, BMC Racing moved up from seventh to fifth place in the rankings, subsequently knocking Tinkoff-Saxo from their spot, after crashing and finishing last in the Team Time Trial.
