Salt Lake's David Zabriskie, the two-time national time trial champion, and former Utahn Levi Leipheimer will represent the United States in China next month.
They highlight the roster of Olympians released by USA Cycling on Tuesday.
George Hincapie is getting a fifth chance at winning Olympic gold.
The longtime American cycling star best known for helping Lance Armstrong win the Tour de France seven consecutive times was announced Tuesday as one of nine discretionary selections to the U.S. Olympic team that'll race in Beijing next month.
Hincapie, 35, becomes the first U.S. racer to make five Olympic cycling teams. No other American has raced a bike in more than three.
"It's very exciting," Hincapie told The Associated Press on Tuesday from his home in Spain. "I never would have imagined being in five Olympics. It's a huge accomplishment, and I feel honored to do another one."
Hincapie who'll begin his 13th Tour de France on Saturday joins two-time Olympians Jason McCartney and Christian Vande Velde (a 2000 track cycling Olympian), along with Olympic rookie Zabriskie as discretionary picks to the five-man American road squad. Leipheimer earned an automatic Olympic spot by finishing third in last year's Tour.
A quest for Olympic gold might be the highlight of Leipheimer's 2008 campaign, because his Astana team isn't allowed to enter this year's Tour.
All five American men will take part in the mass start Olympic road race. Only Leipheimer and Zabriskie will ride in the time trial, an event where Tyler Hamilton won gold and Bobby Julich won bronze in Athens four years ago.
