OKBET CYCLING | Movistar have fallen to 18th in the UCI WorldTour team standings, putting them in danger of relegation
Movistar : After the Tour de France concluded last week, four events were held that will have an effect on the UCI World Rankings for 2020-2022, the crucial figure that will decide which 18 teams would be qualified for the WorldTour in 2023. Because of the success of BikeExchange-Jayco and EF Education-EasyPost, Movistar has fallen below the’safe’ threshold.
Inconsistencies in the criteria, such as the fact that only the top 10 scorers of the year count toward the team standings, have been primarily responsible for the shift this week. Find out how the points system works on the UCI WorldTour by reading more.
Lotto Soudal and Israel-Premier Tech are in in the relegation zone, but the Belgian team used their home Tour de Wallonie to move up the standings. Thanks to Arnaud De Lie’s stage victory, Maxim Van Gils’ seventh position, and Harm Vanhoucke’s 12th place in the overall, the team earned 110 points.
By contrast, Israel-Premier Tech only improved their score by 64 points over the same time period, mostly because their highest-scoring riders were not among their top 10. The achievements of Giacomo Nizzolo, who won a stage and finished 15th overall in the 2.1-ranked Vuelta a Castilla y Leon, and Carl Frederik Hagen were considered, but those of Jenthe Bierman, who finished eighth overall and scored 30 points, were disregarded. Due to Omer Goldstein’s ninth-place finish, the team’s overall score decreased by one point (Krists Neiland’s points were deducted).
TotalEnergies’ chances of making it into the WorldTour are rapidly diminishing, as Lotto Soudal and Israel-Premier Tech are separated by just 157 points. The Movistar Team now sits in 19th position, 763 points behind the 18th-placed Movistar Racing Team.
Points for advancement in the 2022 Team Rankings for the Pro Teams and the Bottom 3 World Teams as of August 9
The true fight will be over the top two ProTeams at the end of 2022, who will then get invites to important events like the Tour de France as a matter of course. Arkéa-Samsic and Alpecin-Deceuninck have been at the top of the standings for the previous two years, and they both seem certain to remain there for the 2020–2023 season and beyond.
Until October, whomever gets demoted will be fighting for results, not only results in general but results from their top 10 riders, given that Lotto Soudal has stated they would remain as a ProTeam.
This year has been rather easy for Lotto Soudal, who are presently 12th in the 2022 standings and have a healthy 852-point advantage over the next-ranked current ProTeam, TotalEnergies. To win against France, Israel-Premier Tech has to get 433 points. As a result, the Vuelta a Espaa will be crucial to the squad’s long-term success.
It is important to keep an eye on the points and make sure you don’t go behind Lotto Soudal in the three-year standings after seeing Movistar, BikeExchange-Jayco, EF Education-EasyPost, Team DSM, and Astana fall below TotalEnergies so far this year.
