Format: Three rider teams, all three scores to count. Team/individual competitions held concurrently.
Five nations had entered the 3-day event, with Japan, the Netherlands, Sweden, and the United States having the full complement of three riders, while Mexico had two entrants. The competition was held by âpassive scoring,â with the team scores made up of the scores of the riders in the individual 3-day event. Only the Netherlands and the United States had three riders finish the individual event, with the United States comfortably winning the gold medal over the Netherlands. The US team won all three phases of the competition, with Japan and Sweden eliminated in the steeplechase and cross-country phase on the second day.
