In November, the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) announced quotas for how many athletes each country can send to Tokyo to compete in the events as determined by UCI World Rankings. USA Cycling will send four women and two men to compete in the road cycling competition.

Countries can send a maximum of five male and four female athletes to participate in the event. For the men’s competition, Belgium, France, Italy, Spain, and Colombia will send the maximum of five athletes, while Australia, the Netherlands, Germany, and Italy will join the US on the women’s side as the only nations to send the maximum of four athletes. The US men and women are ranked 26th and fourth, respectively, in the UCI World Rankings.
