The UCI Women's Road Rankings is a system of ranking road bicycle racers based upon the results in all women's UCI-sanctioned races over a twelve-month period. The world rankings were first instituted by the UCI in 1994.[1] Points are awarded according to finishing positions in each race, with lesser points for each stage of stage races and for wearing the race leader's jersey. The road races at the Olympics and Road World Championships are worth the most points. The team rankings are calculated by summing the points of the team's four best placed riders, and the national rankings by summing the points of the nation's five best placed riders.[2]

Since 1998, the competition has been run in parallel to the UCI Women's Road World Cup, which has included only six to twelve of the most prestigious one-day races. These are worth more points than other one-day races.[2]

Rankings[edit]

In the races throughout the year, points are earned for an individual ranking, a team ranking and a ranking by nation.

  • Individual ranking: This is calculated monthly by adding the points obtained by each rider in a women's race on the UCI calendar. Points earned during the same period of the previous year are deducted.
  • Team ranking: This is calculated monthly by adding the points obtained by the top four riders in the individual ranking of each UCI Women's Team.
  • National ranking: This is calculated by adding the points obtained by the top five riders in the individual ranking of each nation.

Palmarès[edit]

Dutch cyclist Marianne Vos has topped the individual rankings every year from 2007 to 2012.[3][4]
