USA Cycling BMX Olympic Ranking

USA Cycling Olympic Rankings were designed to give the athletes a very clear and simple process to follow in order to make the USA Olympic Team. Our mission is to win medals in Tokyo 2021 and therefore we are looking for riders that are medal capable. By setting high standards we hope that the athletes basically select themselves through their hard work, dedication and results.

Currently (as of May) we have qualified 2 start spots for the women's event and 1 spot for the men's event. The UCI has announced that 2 events will be added to the 2021 calendar which gives the USA a chance of earning that top spot on the UCI ranking and gaining the additional start spot for the men.

USA Cycling is proud to support our BMX National Team athletes who are the ultimate ambassadors of our mission to win, celebrate and inspire.

Athletes may qualify to the National Team based on the following qualification guidelines.
