Summary

This was a passively scored event with three riders on each team, and all three scores from the individual event making up the team score. Great Britain was the defending champion, but they were expected to be challenged by Germany, although they had not won any Nations’ Cup events in 1956, and won only the one in Aachen in 1955. Germany led after the first round with 28 faults, followed by Great Britain with 23 and Italy with 39. In the second round Germany again had the best team score, with only 12 faults, to defend the gold medal easily with 40 faults. Italy moved ahead of Great Britain for the silver medal. Germany would also win this event in 1960 and 1964.
