Dutch men's road team:

 

Steven Kruijswijk

Wout Poels

Tom Dumoulin

Bauke Mollema

 

 

Seriously, what on earth is Kruijswijk doing there? :facepalm:

Such a typical move, "Kruijswijk had a great Giro, let's select him for the Olympics", which is a 10000% different kind of race...Robert Gesink should have been there in his place without any doubt.

Why would they give a prize to someone who has no reason to be in the Olympic road race instead of giving the spot to someone who actually has a reason to be there?

They don't really have criteria for the road race, it's just up to the coach who he selects :p

The Belgian pre-selection has been made, with Gilbert added in the last minute after saying he'd like to go. No Tiesj Benoot: he wanted to be added in the team but only if he could be sure to go to Rio after the Tour de Suisse. Coach said he couldn't guarantee it yet, so no Benoot.

 

Jan Bakelants, Ben Hermans, Greg Van Avermaet, Serge Pauwels, Laurens De Plus, Louis Vervaeke, Tim Wellens, Bart De Clercq en Philippe Gilbert.

It is yet to be decided who will take our place in the Time trial.

They (CZE) will go to international court against UCI because of the Sábliková affair,

 

in fact CZE was the whole time as they wrote assured she is qualified because she won a place in time trial during last years world champs, but CZE failed to qualify a quota in world ranking. 

 

now they were surprised that she isn´t among the invited athletes, so they asked UCI for ia wild card for her, but UCI apparently answered shortly No, we will not answer you by phone, UCI will invite athletes only according to our methodics, we are starting to send letters for the invited NOC´s, if you´ll receive a letter with inviatation CZE will participate, if you´ll not receive any letter it means you are not invited. :lol:

 

the czech side is mainly complaining about the very poor communications from UCI, they said UCI didn´t wanted to talk with them about it, they litterally said that they (UCI) behave brutally, that the discussion with them is not cultivated, their lawyers answered only with harsh statements. In principle, they (UCI) wrote to them that it is a only czech problem that they failed to qualify via Ranking and then they lost the time trial quota for Sábliková and that they are not interested and absolutel don´t care about their problems,

 

well after all the bombarding mails and very hard letters from slovakians after UCI didn´t awarded the wild card for Sagan I´m not surprised that UCI are a bit sensitive with calls, letters, messages from federations of ex-czechoslovakia :lol:

 

so in fact Sábliková and CZE NOC is going to international arbitration court.

I don't have sympathy for Czechs in this case to be honest. Qualification system (which is literally available to everybody) clearly says that athletes have to qualify for road race in order to compete in time trial. It's not UCI's fault that CZE didn't qualify in road race, nor it is their fault that they didn't read the document.
