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.
Dygert and Winder are returning Olympians from 2016 where they were on the track roster and are named to the road roster this go around. Neben competed on the road in London in 2012 for Team USA, finishing seventh in the time trial and 36th in the road race.
Just 19 years old at the 2016 Olympics, Dygert won a silver medal in team pursuit along with Kelly Catlin and Sarah Hammer, and Jennifer Valente. The latter will return for the track squad.
