There was so much talk before Pau about who could take the world number one slot from Michi Jung that the rest of the rankings did not feature in many conversations. And then they were revealed… Michi kept his slot and Tim moved up to the number 2 position just 13 points behind him.
No one was more surprised than Tim himself who modestly said he thought he was “stuck around number 5 or 6” but it really is a fabulous result and just reward for a guy who rode and worked his butt off all season with more early starts and late finishes than you could imagine.
Jonelle ranked world number 2 a few years ago so now there is a whole new Price competition….who will be the first to rank No. 1?!!!
