why? it´s just for fun, he is not going for medal, only to compete and have some fun at olympics :d

 

Well, it would be fine if he gets that wild card. :d I just hope that he doesn't replace that cross-country specialist who has been chasing Olympic points for the last two years. That would seem unfair. :p

You need a minimum of 10 points to compete in mountain biking. Does he have that?

 

Yes. He has 25

That would absolutely be unfair, but if him doing MTB wouldn't take a spot away from someone else, I have no problem with it :p 

 

In fact, it'd be great for MTB which usually isn't exactly a sport that gets a whole lot of attention, but with Sagan joining that will certainly change that, at least for Rio.

no the quota will be used by one of our 2 specialsts, it´s also explained in the slovakian article that the quota will go for one of Michal Lami or Martin Haring. but we asked UCI for a special wild card for Peter Sagan to compete also in MTB. this has nothing to do with our quota.:)

Great that our good season has given a quota for the men as well.

Will be interesting who they send. Our huge talent, Simon Andreassen or Sebastian Fini who's slighlty more experienced (but still young)
