(Pang-masa) - June 21, 2018 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines — Isang ‘Super Team’ ang nais buuin ng PhilCycling na ang layunin ay makapagpadala ng Pinoy cyclist sa Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics.

Ipinag-utos na ni PhilCycling President Abraham “Bambol” Tolentino na bumuo ng “Super Teambase sa mahigpit na criteria.

“We have one full year of achieving a goal of qualifying a Filipino cyclist to the Tokyo Olympics and we want to put together the best of the best on the national team,” sabi ni Tolentino, congressman mula sa kaisa-isang district ng Tagaytay City.

“The PhilCycling will scrutinize the cyclists’ credentials and from there, a selection committee in the federation would determine the composition of the team,” ani Tolentino, chairman ng Philippine Olympic Committee.

A major reorganization of the national road and track team for men and women is in the offing with Tolentino confirming that the coaching staff would be included in the revamp.

Ang Road Cycling Qualification System para sa 32nd Olympiad sa Tokyo ay 128 men at 65 women kung saan ang Top 50 national Olympic committees ay may siguradong isang slot.

Ang gold medal winner sa continental championships sa susunod na taon—ang Asian Cycling Championship sa Uzbekistan sa March ay awtomatikong pasok na sa Tokyo Games.

Ang qualifying season ay magsisimula sa October 22 hanggang October 27, 2019.

Sa kasalukuyan, ang Philippines ay ranked No. 12 sa Asia Tour sa taglay na 217 ranking points. Sa UCI world rankings, ang Pinas ay di gaanong malayo sa  Magic 50 sa puwestong pang-No. 69.
