Jay McCarthy jumps up 15 spots (!) on the UCI World Tour Rankings this week to the #4 position, after his win at the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race.  McCarthy edged out Elia Viviani (Quick-Step Floors) and Daryl Impey (Mitchelton-Scott) in the final sprint of the one-day event.  Impey’s strong finish at Cadel strengthened his hold of the #1 position, while Richey Porte and Dries Devenyns round out the top 3.

“In this race, everything went well,” McCarthy said. “I was a bit disappointed with my performance at the Tour Down Under, but I came with confidence to Geelong and wanted to achieve a good result.”


Mitchelton-Scott holds on to #1 team on the WorldTour Ranking.  Meanwhile, the overall UCI World Rankings remain unchanged with Van Avermaet, Froome, and Sagan still leading in the rolling average rankings.

*UCI World Tour Rankings reset annually and are a subset of all UCI Pro Races. UCI World Road Rankings are a rolling average, and include all races on UCI’s road calendar.
