Here's a reminder of the rules you will find details on manialink.

- Race: This is the discipline most practiced in TrackMania, and it will be present in the ManiaOlympics. Only the top 128 players will qualify for the finals (the first of each country + 36 other top players). You will be offered a track of each environment and for qualifying for the final phase.

- Endurance: This discipline is where the regularity of force will be played in teams of 4 for the final phase. But like any test, you will first need to qualify in the same way as the "Race", solo this time. Top 4 players from each country will qualify for the finals (many countries have teams Extra according to the number of players on Trackmania United Forever). Then the nations (represented by the 4 best players in them), will be distributed after draws in ManiaCup. Two of the four players will play each circuit (the possibility of inter change between different circuits of course).

- Stunt: The stunt will be the most artistic disciplines represented at ManiaOlympics. It works exactly like the "Race", namely: qualifications and selection of the 128 best replays (points here and not in seconds as a time standard) and then finals in ManiaCup.

- Platform: In this discipline, you will of course try not to take while running, why you should train intensely on the proposed routes, and then, like "Race" and "stunt" the 128 best players will be selected and will participate in the final ManiaCup.

- Relay: This discipline is the thread of the competition. There is no qualification. You must form teams of 4 players you can choose a captain but we need all four players are from the same country.

The first round is played solo, what are the qualifications. To qualify, you must go on manialink "ManiaOlympics. Going on the "Events", a message will pop up asking if you want to register. Select "Yes" and you will have unlimited access to all four disciplines to practice. You will need the best of yourself in the validation of your official time, it at ten trials per day. A circuit of each environment will be offered. You can access the "Qualifications" to the closing date thereof. You will not see your ranking, or the time of other players before the end of the qualifying stage. To make an official time, simply run a map and to "escape" and "Repeat official mode".

The second round is a maniacup combining the 128 best players but they are only the first of each country who is qualified and then the following 36 players.

Registration costs 200 coppers and you'll have access to all competitions. The sum will pay the awards.

For awards, there is a gold tag for the first of each maniacup, a silver tag for a tag and the second bronze for third. Depending on the number of registered, there may be other rewards.
