With the 2011 UCI Cyclocross World Championships over, its time to focus on the last few races of the season. Our latest update includes points from the Worlds, GvA Lille, and the Hoogstraten Superprestige. With the added bonus points from the Worlds combined with the results from the other races we have some changes at the top of the leaderboard. Missed our pre-Worlds update? Check out the previous standings here.

Still atop the standings is Jeff Hicks’ Team Zoom with 2304 points, the chase group is led by Justin’s Muddy Udders (2279 points), with Eric’s Epuff CX (2275 points) right behind him.  We’ve still got a few races left, we’ll have to see if Jeff can hold his lead to the end.

A special shout out goes to Tim Darwick and his Fancyshpants team for getting the top score at the Worlds with 546 points. Good job, Tim! Brian Graves was just three points behind in his Worlds performance.

Cyclocross Magazine’s contributors and staff are showing their big noggins have a bit of cyclocross knowledge, with Katriel Statman, Christopher Bagg, Andrew Yee and Josh Liberles holding down four of the top twelve spots.  With some great luck, perhaps I might break into that group myself with the remaining races.

Here are the current standings:
