The ranking, which takes into account the results in all the UCI races of the last twelve months, continues to be led by the Slovenian Tadej Pogacar (UAE Team Emirates); while the best Latino on the list is Colombian Daniel Felipe Martínez (Ineos Grenadiers) with 13th place.
The classification in the first positions underwent substantial changes, since the new world champion on the road, the Belgian Remco Evenepoel (Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl), rose from third to second position, unseating his compatriot Wout Van Aert (Jumbo- Visme).
