COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — USA Cycling announced today the Road, Mountain Bike, BMX Racing, BMX Freestyle, and Track Cycling teams that will compete for the U.S. Olympic Cycling Team. The 2020 Olympic Games will run July 23 – August 8, 2021, in Tokyo, Japan.
The USA Cycling Selection Committee and coaching staff named seven Road, four Mountain Bike, five BMX Racing, four BMX Freestyle, and eight Track spots.
Park City’s Haley Batten incredible second-place result at the 2021 UCI World Cup in Nove Mesto, CZE earned her an automatic nomination. The 22-year-old has become a dominant athlete in the Elite Women’s mountain bike category.
“A year ago when we named the long team, I watched these athletes cycle through the disappointment of having to wait then very quickly shifting to the commitment that we will go to Tokyo stronger a year later,” said USA Cycling’s CEO Rob DeMartini.
