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
The points chase toward the 2020 Olympic Games has started.

This can include National Championships, Class 1 (C1) events, Continental Championships, World Cups and World Championships. Please find below the current Individual Park standings for Elite Men.

BMX Career numbers change after each UCI World Championship. The new World Champions get to show off with the big number 1 on their plate and the rainbow jersey on their shoulders. The top 8 numbers are reserved for the finalists but they can either stick with their current career number or show off what place they got at the latest World's. In the Elite Women class the Smulders family already have their jerseys printed. #1 on the back for Laura and #2 for Merel while Judy Baauw has chosen to got for the W3 plate from now on until the UCI World Championships start in Heusden-Zolder, Belgium next year. Sylvain André will rock the #1 plate in Elite Men with Joris Daudet keeping his #33 career number. Mr. De Souza will proudly rock the #3 for a year and get used to Joris Harmsen running the W4 plate, Kyle Evans with the 6 and David Graf turning in the 48 for #7 for the upcoming races.
