how does the UCI have Neko ranked 14th? He finished 38th in the season! Noticed a few other discrepancies in UCI rankings and final standings. I wonder how they calculate this?

i'm not 100% positive, but i think the UCI ranking listed is different than just the World Cup ranking, based on a variety of different races. for example, when a U.S. race has "UCI points", i think those go toward your UCI ranking. again, not 100% sure on this.

He accumulated like 242 UCI point in this year's WC races but since 2014s world champs he accumulated 658 points total, including some from American Continental Championships, and the BDS.

Can confirm that this is accurate. National Championships are worth quite a bit of points, while some national series races aren't worth that much in comparison to a World Cup. UCI points don't matter that much anyways, as fans and media aren't following and posting up the UCI rankings like they would for a sports league tables and standings for football/soccer or some other sport.

Getting Luca/Lucas mixed up this year with Dean Lucas and Luca Shaw popping up in the top 20 often, also with Luca Cometti taking a spot over the KHS boys.

That seems like an almost depressingly low turnout from us Canadians. Bit of a shame really there are a few more names I'd love to see on that list.
