Rio 2016 Track Qualification System

12 Oct 2015 13:08

Numbers for Track Cycling will be "capped" at 189; 99 men and 90 women.

National teams will be restricted to a maximum of 8 men:
- max 4 riders Teams Pursuit
- max 3 riders Team Sprint
- max 2 riders Individual Sprint and Keiren
- max 1 rider omnium

and 7 women:
- max 4 riders Teams Pursuit
- max 2 riders Team Sprint
- max 2 riders Individual Sprint and Keiren

The UCI Track Rankings as at end of qualification period (end of FEB 2016) will determine quotas for the various events.

For Team Sprint: The nine (9) best ranked NOCs on the UCI Olympic Track Ranking 2014-2016, respecting the maximum allocation per continent below, will each qualify a team of three (3) athletes.

For Individual Sprint and Keirin: The nine (9) best ranked athletes from NOCs which have not qualified any quota places in Team Sprint, respecting the maximum quota of two (2) athletes per NOC per individual event and the maximum allocation per continent below, will each qualify one (1) quota place for their NOC.

In addition, NOCs qualified in the Team Sprint are given the right to enter two (2) athletes in each of the individual Sprint and Keirin, subject to all of the following conditions being met:
• The selected athletes must already be qualified for and entered in another Cycling discipline and/or event;
• The selected athletes must meet all eligibility requirements for Track Cycling, and;
• All quotas per NOC and per event must be respected.

The total number of athletes taking part in individual Sprint and Keirin could therefore reach a maximum of 27.

For Team Pursuit: The nine (9) best ranked NOCs on the UCI Olympic Track Ranking 20142016, respecting the maximum allocation per continent below, will each qualify a team of four (4) athletes.

For Omnium: The 18 best ranked NOCs on the UCI Olympic Track Ranking 2014-2016, respecting the maximum allocation per continent below, will each qualify one (1) quota place.

Maximum number of NOCs per continent that may qualify per event:
Team Sprint Sprint Keirin Team Pursuit Omnium
Europe 5 5 5 6 8
America 2 2 3 2 6
Asia 2 2 2 2 5
Oceania 2 1 1 2 2
Africa 1 1 1 1 1

No, it's still part of the program. The numbers per gender difference is due to Team Sprint being 3 man teams as against 2 women per team.

The one area where I can see some query with qualification relates to the individual sprint & keiren where nations who qualified a team sprint team may enter maximum of 2 riders but a later clause stipulates a limitation of nations per continent. A case in point is Oceania where both NZL & AUS will almost certainly qualify a men's team sprint however Oceania is restricted to maximum of one country in both the individual sprint & keiren.

Does this restriction apply in this case or only to riders from countries who did NOT qualify a team sprint ?
