But yet again, UCI seems to not know its qualifying rules as in their document they are awarding a quota to Colombia

:facepalm:

 

Makes no sense whatsoever. Who knows, maybe that's how Puerto Rico got its quota in men's road race, by mistake!

Seems like the only explanation... don't forget in the document for track cycling they gave another spot to Colombia, which chould have been given to the Czechs.

I think I figured it out. Brazil qualified an athlete by having someone in the top 100. The reallocation of host quota goes to the highest ranked nation without a quota which is Colombia.

But Brazil has 2 quotas on the list; I don't know what mess they did again, taking one spot away from France.

That also explains the mystery about Puerto Rico's qualification in the men's road race! Puerto Rico was the highest ranked unqualified nation in the American tour (though only in 12th position).

 

This should mean that UCI is applying the reallocation of the host quotas at the end of the process, meaning that Indonesia qualified in men's BMX instead of Chile.

I believe this was the order of things. Brazil qualified one individual, meaning that they only used one of two host quotas. The other host quota was given to the highest ranked nation not already qualified (Colombia). To keep the number of athletes on 67, France had to give away one quota.

Looks like Bolivia received wild card for men's road race.

Looks like Kosovo also got wild card for men's road race. This should mean that somebody declined a quota (presumably Sweden). Bolivia got the "scheduled" wild card.


No word from UCI, of course.
