Six women and three men will race for nine Rainbow Jerseys, which include men’s and women’s omniums, points races and scratch races, women’s team pursuit, women’s individual pursuit and men’s keirin.
 
Bobby Lea (Mertztown, Pa./Custom Velo), who earned automatic nomination for the scratch race, is currently ineligible to compete due to a USADA doping violation. However, Lea has appealed his suspension to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). If Lea’s appeal is successful and he is reinstated, USA Cycling will honor his automatic nomination and name him to the team.
