spot with 156 points, up from ninth.
Tom Boonen finished fourth in the Tour of Flanders and he had an ever bigger gain and jumped from the twelfth to fourth with a total of 140 points. Cadel Evans of Belgium team was in fifth place with 128 points. Nick Nuyens, who recently won the Ronde Van
Vlaanderen was able to move into the ninth position in the UCI world rankings.
Australia has again successfully placed themselves in the number one spot in the world rankings by getting 517 points while Italy was in second place. Belgium, who was previously in fifth place, was elevated to the third position. Germany on the other hand
has moved down to the fourth spot and Spain to fifth.
HTC-high road is still on top, with a total of 371 points, while the Rabobank teams has moved from sixth up to second place with the difference of 105 points. The Lampre – ISD team failed to gain points and slipped from second to third position while the
