Date Started: October 24, 1964
Date Finished: October 24, 1964
Format: Two rounds. Three rider teams, all three scores to count. Team/individual competitions held concurrently.
Unlike in 1960, the team competition was held concurrently with the individual event. Teams consisted of three riders with all three scores in both rounds to count towards the team score. Fourteen nations started with 10 teams having three riders successfully complete the course in both rounds. Germany had won the gold medal in both 1956 and 1960 and defended their title again in Tokyo. They had the best team score in both the first and second rounds, but were challenged by France, which placed second, led by the individual gold medalist, [Pierre Jonquères d’Oriola]. Italy, whose team consisted of the redoubtable D’Inzeo brothers, Raimondo and Piero, and Graziano Mancinelli, won the bronze medal.
