Bobby Julich has moved up to fourth place in the ProTour standings following his victory in the ENECO Tour this week. The ProTour ranking is still headed by Danilo Di Luca, who holds a 45-point lead over second-placed Lance Armstrong, who has of course retired. Alexandre Vinokourov is third, another three points behind Armstrong.

Di Luca is hoping to increase his already healthy advantage in this Saturday's San Sebastian Classic, which Vinokourov is now set to miss. Julich, meanwhile, will be looking for more points in the Deutschland Tour, which starts next Monday. The American was the first leader of the ProTour when he won the inaugural event, Paris-Nice, back in March.

Julich's success helped lift his CSC team into second place in the team standings, 17 points behind leaders Phonak.
