You've been asking us for weeks how and where riders will win ProTour points, and the UCI have final
PICTURE BY TIM DE WAELE The UCI has released details of the points that will be awarded to riders during next season's ProTour events. This new ranking system will replace the UCI world rankings and the World Cup standings and will be allocated as follows: - Tour de France: 100 points to the winner, then 75, 60, 55, 50, 45, 40, 35, 30, 25, 20, 15, 12, 9, 7, 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1 for 20th place. - Giro and Vuelta: 85 points to the winner, then 65, 50, 45, 40, 35, 30, 26, 22, 19, 16, 13, 11, 9, 7, 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1 for 20th place. - The 'monument' Classics (Milan-San Remo, Tour of Flanders, Paris-Roubaix, Lige-Bastogne-Lige, Tour of Lombardy) and other stage races: 50 points to the winner, then 40, 35, 30, 25, 20, 15, 10, 5 and 1 for 10th place. - Other one-day races: 40, 30, 25, 20, 15, 11, 7, 5, 3 and 1 for 10th place. - World championship: 50, 40 and 35 for 3rd place. - Stage results: 3, 2 and 1 in the major tours; 1 point for a stage win in the other multi-day events. The leader of the ProTour classification will wear a white jersey with a blue neck and sleeves. If the world champion is leading the ProTour, the latter jersey will take precedence over the rainbow jersey. Other classification jerseys held during stage races, such as a King of the Mountains jersey, will be given priority over the ProTour leader's jersey. So if, for example, Lance Armstrong was leading the ProTour and the Tour de France, he would wear Tour yellow rather than ProTour white.
