Duo enter WorldTour-rankings

The UCI's World Tour-rankings after the conclusion of the Giro were unveiled today, and Mikel Nieve and Jon Izagirre now both appear in the standings. The former is ranked 51st in the world after scoring 42 points, whilst the latter is 77th with 16 points. Samuel Sánchez remains the team's top man though, lying a lofty fourth with 252 points. Gorka Verdugo is the team's fourth representative, having scored a solitary point. Rodríguez is naturally the new leader after his sensational showing in Italy.

Of the 18 teams, Euskaltel is ranked 12th on 311 points. Vacansoleil in 11th is just seven points ahead, while Movistar in 13th is 13 points off Euskaltel. Saxo Bank, shorn of Contador's services, continue to prop up the standings with a paltry 43 points. Katusha are at the other end of the standings courtesy of Rodríguez's second place and pair of stage wins.
