Why what happened?

Our Cycling federation selected the riders for BMX... and It does not make sense, as @LuizGuilherme said.

 

Anderson is in a much better moment... he had better performances and results than Renato in all WC this year. Moreover, Anderson has a bronze medal from Worlds in 2018 and, if I am not wrong, it would be your first games... Renato has already participated in two, and he did not get good results in any of them.

We're talking about a federation that has had the same president for decades even though national cycling hasn't budged. We achieved the feat of not classifying anyone in road cycling for the Olympics, not to mention that we have one of the best velodromes in the world and a Brazilian championship has never been hosted there! A shame, and Vasconcellos was re-elected for the thousandth time of these days. I don't expect anything from the Brazilian federation. Lucky for the mountain bike people who have Henrique Avancini

How about results last year? For example in mountainbike, this year's results didn't count as much as last year's results for Brazil, no idea if it's the same in BMX.

The criteria in Portuguese... TBH, I don't know if Renato or Anderson fit better this system.... but, imo, the choice of our representant was quite obvious at this moment.

These sound pretty clear and straightforward though, don't they?

I'm assuming the displinary, doping and ethical things aren't an issue for either and hopefully the same goes for the last one. Then it's about the first and second one, which seems like a pretty clear points system, or does Anderson end up on top, numerically speaking?
