USA Cycling Still Rolling Toward Olympics

by editors on March 20, 2020

With pretty much every world cycling event cancelled and most of the world shut down, USA Cycling would like to remind everyone that they are still doing their job to make sure that the best American athletes make it to Tokyo if, indeed the 2020 Summer Olympic Games are held.

Here’s what they’re saying:

The current plan is to select and announce the USA Cycling Olympic Team(s) from May 1 through June 3 and make all selections public no later than June 10.

The USOPC selection deadlines are as follows:

Track Cycling – May 1, 2020

BMX Freestyle – May 15, 2020

Mountain Bike – June 1, 2020

Road – June 1, 2020

BMX Racing – June 3, 2020

Should the IOC determine it necessary to change the dates of the Games, USA Cycling will adjust accordingly and provide new information through direct communication to our athletes and coaches, on our website, and through social media channels.

For the rest fo the story, please follow the jump.

USA Cycling will continue to provide support services and information for our athletes and the greater cycling community (https://www.usacycling.org/member-well-being), including COVID-19 specific webinars from Dr. Michael Roshon and additional information on our website. Please check our webpage regularly for updates.

USA Cycling encourages our athletes and their families, members, associates, and the entire cycling community to take part in flattening the curve of COVID-19’s progression in alignment with the CDC’s recommendations. We will get back to our group rides, races, and training when this threat has subsided. For now, we are committed to do our part in getting through these challenging times.
