Chris Froome 1 587 276 4 311 3
Peter Sagan 2 409 80 2 329 0
Joaquin Rodriguez 3 390 144 8 246 5

Richie Porte 6 327 22 5 305 -1
Vicenzo Nibali 7 322 0 3 322 -4
Daniel Martin 8 287 20 5 267 -3
Alejandro Valverde 9 274 82 12 192 3
Roman Kreuziger 10 258 106 16 152 6
Carlos Betancur 11 255 0 7 255 -4
Alberto Contador 12 252 120 20 132 8
Rui Costa 13 239 40 10 199 -3
Michele Scarponi 14 213 0 9 213 -5
Bauke Mollema 15 205 100 27 105 12

The biggest up movers are Mollema and Quintana and Scarponi, Cancellara and Nibali (all absent from the Tour) are the ones that will fall harder in UCI rank.

Portuguese Rui Costa, despite his major achievement in the 100th Tour – he won 2 mountain stages, something that only one other Portuguese rider (Joaquim Agostinho) made it back in 1969, dropped to 13th.

But his hopes to finish inside Top 10 – as he did last year – are not over yet since a lot of UCI points are still on dispute specially in the ‘Vuelta’ and the Tour of Beijing, although we’re not sure if Costa will take part in any of these events.
