Who will make it to the top 10? Who will drop out? Keep on checking because things are getting interesting.

The Olympics qualifying period started on 1 November 2018 and will go until 11 May of 2020. That means we're 6 months in and we've got 12 to go. We decided to give you an update on who is doing well at the moment and who are on the bubble making it to the Olympic Games in Tokyo in 2020. But first things first. A little explanation of how this works is needed. Only 9 spots are available for Men and Women at the first Olympic Games in Tokyo. Clearly, that's not a lot, especially when you know hundreds of riders are trying to make it there. During the Qualification period several events count where riders can score points for their nation. The nation ranking in the end is used to see which countries have conquered a spot to ride in Tokyo. The two best ranked riders per nation form the Nation ranking. Their points get added up and that way it's clear to see where their nation is ranked. For the moment the nation ranking looks like this.
Men: 1 AUSTRALIA 6230 2 UNITED STATES OF AMERICA 5390 3 GREAT BRITAIN 3458 4 BOLIVARIAN REPUBLIC OF VENEZUELA 3360 5 RUSSIAN FEDERATION 3300 6 COSTA RICA 2210
