Slovenian rider Tadej Pogačar, two-times Tour de France winner, remains No. 1 in the world, topping the UCI men's road cycling world ranking for a continuos 90 weeks and 100 weeks in total.

Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates) has recently recovered from a wrist injury he sustained when he fell during the Liege-Bastogne-Liege race.

He announced earlier this month that he will compete at the Tour de France, which he won in 2020 and 2021, but not at the Tour of Slovenia, which starts tomorrow.

Another Slovenian rider among the top 10 is Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma), who lost two spots for sixth place.

He returned to the top 10 after he won the Giro d'Italia last month as the first Slovenian to date.

Pogačar tops the rankings with 6,727.86 points, ahead of two Belgians, Remco Evenepoel (Soudal Quickstep) with 5,073.21 points and Wout Van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) with 4,827.

Roglič has 3,276.5 points.
