AIGLE, Switzerland (AP) — The International Cycling Union has agreed to race quotas for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, letting track teams qualify two riders in sprint and keirin.

UCI President Brian Cookson says it means "we will see more of the world's very best riders compete."

At the 2012 Olympics, British track great Chris Hoy missed the men's sprint after the UCI allowed only one rider per team. Teammate Jason Kenny won gold in London, four years after taking silver behind Hoy in Beijing.

Although Hoy won keirin gold in London, he had led a British 1-2 in Beijing.

Brazil is guaranteed places in road, mountain bike and BMX events.
