In regards to the first date; I think they have already settled on this subject. Generally in the Olympics the Tripartite Commission spots are awarded to countries with very few Olympic entries in an effort to include more countries in the spirit of unity. In 2008 those spots just went to countries based on performance at the World Championships. Due to the nature of our sport it would be somewhat ridiculous to award a BMX qualification spot to say, Indonesia; just in the name of including more countries in the Olympics. That rider would not be competitive. I was told that they have already decided to do the same thing this time around; awarding the Tripartite Commission spots to countries based on the Worlds' results.
Bottom line, to answer your question, looks like 9 July to know the formal list; but I assume that individual federations will be making announcements as we go.
