South African Daryl Impey (Mitchelton-Scott) has clung onto his lead in the men's UCI WorldTour after the results of Paris-Nice were added to the ranking on Sunday.

Impey won the season-opening Tour Down Under in Australia in January, and then followed it up with third place at the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race on January 28 to position himself at the top of the WorldTour table – and he's been there ever since.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
