    thats because its overall points, not WC points. He raced more races that got UCI points then everybody else I guess.

    Hill is on top, minnaar in a close second, Peaty in a close 3rd, and Gee a not impossible 4th, with mick hannah rounding out the top 5

    He isn't. Those are UCI overall points standings, not UCI World Cup standings. They include points from any UCI event this year.

    Edit: Sniped by William :)

    That's what happens when you take something titled UCI Ranking and insert "world Cup" into it on your own. Disregard the fact that the results listed are from '08 and '09 and you make a mistake repeated here roughly once every 2 weeks

    general lee, wtf?

    i didnt type 'world cup' on my own. all i did was go to the uci hompage, click mt bike, results, dhi...
    i think the site is messed up becaue it has 08 in there. maybe i can widdle it down with a query.
    if i had done what you are suggesting it would have had 07,06,05 in there too...

    i added it up and now i see. thank you...

    ps:why not list it every 2 weeks. it is discussion of changing points for races that happen every week or two. after all, we are on a discussion board.

    The link you posted is reffering to the UCI rankings (which includes results from national & continental champs and a few other races), not world cup standings.
    World cup standings are here

    Right, and then you took what was titles 'UCI Rankings' and called it 'UCI World Cup Overall Points.' seeing as you typed the title of the thread i'm guessing you put the extra words in yourself.

    but for future reference, if anyone is looking for actual WC standings on the UCI's non-user-friendly website click on the 'mountainbike' tab in the left column and then scroll down to the Nissan WC link under the 'events' heading.
