The UCI BMX Supercross World Cup series offers significant international class 2 ranking points that affect an athlete’s individual international (UCI) ranking, and contribute to a nation’s ranking, which is the primary factor in determining the number of start positions a country receives at the 2012 Olympic Games. The Chula Vista contest is also the third of seven races to be factored into the 2011-12 USA Cycling BMX Power Rankings which helps determine the athletes who will represent Team USA at the upcoming Olympic Games, per the team selection procedures.
