Chloé Dygert, Amber Neben, Ruth Winder, Coryn Rivera, and Leah Thomas were named to the US women’s road team for the Tokyo Olympic Games, while Lawson Craddock and Brandon McNulty will represent the men on the road. Of the 27 athletes named to fill 28 positions by the USA Cycling Selection Committee and coaching staff, Dygert is the only athlete crossing over two disciplines, as she will also fill a spot on the track in the team pursuit.

The US team heading to Tokyo is comprised of seven riders (men and women) for road races, four for mountain bike, five for BMX racing, four for BMX freestyle, and eight spots for the track.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
