Cycling at the 2012 Summer Olympics – Qualification

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Summary[edit]

Following publication of full track cycling quotas - 25 April 2012.[1]

Although in theory an NOC is entitled to qualify up to one place per track event for a total of eighteen quota places, a limit of 14 riders (8 men, 6 women ) is placed on each NOC, with the possibility of drafting in two further riders from other cycling events. For certain countries, therefore, the number of quota places won will significantly exceed the numbers of riders qualified.

Similarly, the cyclists who compete in the road time trial must also compete in the road race event; thus an NOC may win 2 quota places, but be allowed to take only one rider.
