A larger crew of Canadian mountain bikers will be racing the next two UCI Mountain Bike World Cup events and hoping to score some very precious points for Canada in the UCI Olympic qualification process.

According to the UCI Olympic selection protocol, countries ranked sixth through 13th will receive two spots on the start line of the men's Olympic race, while Canada has secured the maximum two spots for the women's Olympic race.
