Pogacar keeps the UAE leader, Jumbo rises with Roglic and Movistar wins a place

The dispute between Paris-Nice and Tirreno-Adriatico last week has caused an earthquake in the three-year UCI team ranking, in a classification in which, little by little, the great teams in the peloton settle in the top positions as the season progresses.

A classification in which, after this week, the UAE Emirates consolidates as the outstanding leader with 4,727.74 points so far this year. Of these, 712.86 have been achieved by Tadej Pogacar in the recent Paris-Nice, achieving 500 points for winning the general classification, 60 for each of the three stages. that he won and ten points for each stage that he was the leader. Pogacar has not been the only one who has contributed to the great week of the UAE Emirates, since Joao Almeida has achieved 456 points in Tirreno-Adriatico, of which 400 correspond to his second place overall.

More than 1,000 points behind the UAE Emirates, the Ineos Grenadiers appears in second position with 3,708.04, which this week adds up thanks to the 415 points achieved by Tao Geoghegan Hart in Tirreno-Adriatico, 325 of them as third overall, in addition to the 90 achieved by Filippo Ganna as winner of the opening time trial and the three days he was the leader.

Just 102 points behind Ineos Grenadiers is Jumbo-Visma, third with 3,606 points, and who this week has added Primoz Roglic’s 700 points in Tirreno-Adriatico thanks to the 500 that the Slovenian won for taking the overall, 60 per each of his three stage wins and another 10 for each of his two days as leader of the general. To them must be added the 418.57 added by Jonas Vingegaard in Paris-Nice, of which 325 are for his third place overall in the race.
