2012 Olympic Games mountain bike spots definitely decided

Some changes to initial allocations per nation

The UCI published the definitive attribution of places for the men's and women's mountain bike races for the 2012 Olympic Games.

Qualified National Olympic Committees (NOCs) had until June 15 to accept their starting slots. In accordance with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and UCI regulations, a reallocation of quota places was undertaken after some NOCs turned down their spots

Regarding the men's qualifying, Sweden declined its quota place which was reallocated to Portugal.

Regarding the women's qualifying, The Netherlands declined its only quota place and Norway one of its spots. These were, in the first instance, reallocated to Hungary and Spain. Spain declined the place and it was reallocated to Japan.

The final distribution of the 50 men's and 30 women's places is below.
