Track, Cyclo-Cross: latest Rider Standings (November 28)
 

Both the UCI and UIV (Union Internationale des Velodromes) recently issued the new updated rankings of Cyclo-cross and Track riders respectively. With good news for Belgians, leading in both categories.

Indeed after the Six Days of Ghent Australian-born Belgian Matthew Gilmore is the best track specialist, leading by a 5-point margin over his usual (but not in the last six-day event) teammate Scott McGrory of Australia, while besides setting the new record of 6-day wins, Switzerland's Bruno Risi moved up to second overall, on the same number of points as McGrory himself. And the other member of the "Alpen-express" Kurt Betschart, is currently fourth overall.

Light years behind are italians Villa and Martinello, and Germany's Andreas Beikirch. American Marty Nothstein is now in seventeenth place. South Africa's Jean-Pierre Van Zyl is 31st overall, while Britain's Brad Wiggins, after taking second in Belgium, is ranked 35th, five points clear of another American, Ryan Oelkers, with more english-speaking riders Colby Pearce, Mark Renshaw and Robert Hunter) following. Cofidis' new signing, Hayden Roulston of New Zealand, is sitting in the 55th spot.

As to Cyclo-Cross, the Belgian domination of UCI Standings comes as no surprise, after most European races so far in the current season has turned into an all-Belgian showdown, with Dutchman Richard Groenendaal being the only serious challenger from outside the country. The presence of seven riders from Belgium in the Top 10 perfectly says it all.

The best-placed english-speaker is American Marc Gullickson, currently sitting in 18th place, but with less than 20% of the points scored by leader Mario de Clercq. Two more U.S. riders, Tim Johnson and Jonathan Page, are in 29th and 32rd place respectivaley, straight ahead of Britain's Hammond and Ellis. With the good ol' days of Bramati and Pontoni seemingly just a thing of the past, the best Italian is Enrico Franzoi, ranked 26th, while Pontoni is just 31st.
