How the Index Works

The IG Markets Pro Cycling Index is designed to reward both moments of brilliance and months of consistent performance.
We source results from over 100 top international road races throughout the season. Races are ranked by our expert panel, based on their prestige and their importance to cycling fans.
The IG Markets Pro Cycling Index has a number of features that make it unique:
[LIST][*]Wins carry much greater weight and are rewarded more than placings.[*]Bonus points are awarded for multiple victories in the top races, winning the most prestigious stages at the Grand Tours or outstanding efforts during the Tour de France.[*]A Rider of the Day is selected by the panel daily during the Tour de France.[*]The Rider of the Month award is an ongoing regular feature.[/LIST]Scoring system

Second tier races:

Quote:
E3 Prijs Vlaanderen, Ghent-Wevelgem, Amstel Gold, Flèche Wallone, Clásica San Sebastian, Paris-Tours, Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, Strade Bianche Eroica, GP Ouest-France, World Championship Time Trial, Olympic Time Trial.
What's Strade Bianche doing there? I like the race, but in prestige and certainly in the field that participates there's no comparison to the Omloop or Amstel Gold.

Another interesting thing is Dan Martin in 14th, ahead of Cadel Evans, to name just one. How is that possible?

I don't think that's an unreasonable rating... would you have scaled the Eneco Tour higher than the ToC? If there's an odd one out, it would be the Vuelta a Burgos IMO. For the same reason as the Strade Bianche: nice race, but not such a strong field. The same could be said about the ToC, but the American teams really go for that one.

Yeah I agree. I would of thought a 2nd place at ATOC and 1st at TOS surely levi should be in the top 20.

Be careful. The CQ ranking has the continual ranking and the ranking for each separate year so be careful when comparing the two.
