CyclingEdit

China entered one rider each to compete in the men's and women's Olympic road races, by virtue of his top 50 national finish (for men) and her top 100 individual finish (for women) in the UCI World Ranking.[33]

Athlete Event Time Rank

TrackEdit

Following the completion of the 2020 UCI Track Cycling World Championships, Chinese riders accumulated spots in the women's team sprint, as well as the women's sprint, keirin, and omnium, based on their country's results in the final UCI Olympic rankings.

Unable to earn a spot in the men's team sprint, China won a single quota place in the men's individual sprint through the UCI Olympic rankings. Qualification for the individual sprint thereby implies a quota place being added to the men's keirin.
