Jumbo-Visma takes the lead from Emirates after Paris-Roubaix

The dispute of the last cycling week with Itzulia, the Tour of the Basque Country, and Paris-Roubaix, has left us with a change of leader in the team classification in the UCI ranking.

A leadership that this week holds the Jumbo-Visma with 9,227.99 points after this week Jonas Vingegaard added 400 as the Itzulia winnerthe Tour of the Basque Country, plus 50 for each of the three stages he won in the Basque event. The Jumbo-Visma also shone in the classics with 520 points from Wout Van Aert as third in Paris Roubaix and 135 points from Christophe Laporte as tenth at the Roubaix velodrome.

In this way, the Jumbo-Visma ousts the leadership of the UAE Emirates, which this week is second with 8,561.74 points after Brandon McNulty’s 120 as seventh overall in Itzulia and the 50 of Matteo Trentin in Paris-Roubaix.

The great ascent this week in the classification is carried out by the Alpecin-Deceuninck, who is third with 5,639 points. A climb whose main protagonists are Mathieu Van der Poel and Jasper Philipsen, who in Paris-Roubaix added 800 and 640 points respectively as first and second in the ‘Hell of the North’. In addition, Philipsen himself added another 200 points as the winner of the Scheldt GP to achieve this incredible promotion.

In this way, Alpecin-Deceunick surpasses Soudal Quick-Step in the standings (fourth with 5,274.23), Ineos Grenadiers, fifth with 5,082.74 despite Filippo Ganna’s 280 points as sixth in Paris-Roubaix; and to Trek-Segafredo, who stalks the fifth place of the Ineos with 5,082.4 points thanks to the 440 achieved with the fourth place of Mads Pedersen in Roubaix.

Also taking an important leap this week is the Groupama-FDJ, which is seventh with 4,418.28 points thanks to Stefan Küng’s 360 as fifth classified in Paris-Roubaix and David Gaudu’s 220 as fifth classified in Itzulia. Some points that allow him to surpass Intermarché-Circus-Wanty in the classification, eighth with 4,349; and Bahrain-Victorious, ninth with 4,336.39 and this week adding Mikel Landa’s 320 points as second overall for Itzulia. He closes the Top-10 EF Education First-Easypost with 4,177.55 points.

A Top-10 with which Movistar continues to dream with the start of the season of the Ardennes Classics. The Spanish team remains in twelfth position with 3,742 points thanks to Enric Mas’ 180 points as fifth place overall in Itzulia in a week in which the team could not repeat in Paris-Roubaix the good results obtained in other races on cobblestones such as E3 Harelbeke, Across Flanders or Tour of Flanders.
