Event Description
Team Sprint

The team sprint was first featured in the Sydney 2000 Olympics.The event is comprised of two teams with three riders each. The two teams start simultaneously from the starting line at the center of the track and at the starting line on the opposite side, and then circle the track 3 times. Every lap, the preceding member comes down the track, and on the last lap, one member arrives at the finishing line that marks the overall rank. The member situated on the inside of the track is supported by the starting block. In other words, 3 riders compete on the first lap, whereas 2 compete on the second lap and 1 on the final lap. Here, the leading member must circle the track once and cycle up outside of the track and exit below the track without interfering with the opposing team, and the last cyclist must cycle the final lap by him or herself. When the overall time is tied, the team with the quickest final lap wins. The team sprint event for women was adopted during the 2004 World Cup, in which two riders ride 2 laps, as in the men’s event.

Sprint

Sprint is an official Olympic event in which 2~4 riders are assigned to a group. Riders will do 3 laps on tracks less than 333 m in length, and 2 laps around longer tracks. During the competition, the riders can make use of diversions and tactics to pass the finishing line first, making it an interesting and thrilling brain game. First, a 200 m record competition is held for group assignment. In this race, riders often make full spurts in the final lap, and mostly contend in the final 200 m. Naturally, riders with the quickest instant speed during this 200 m distance have a higher chance of winning. The race is held as a tournament, in which the races are normally conducted as a best of 3 games from the quarterfinals. The starting position is determined through a drawing, and the rider positioned on the inside of the track must precede the first lap. During the 2nd round, the starting position is changed, and during the 3rd round, the starting position is again determined through a drawing.

Keirin

Keirin is an official Olympic event that is currently adopted in Korea and Japan. The races are conducted in tournament fashion, in which the riders circle 8 laps around the 250 m track (6 laps around a 333 m track) following a guide on a motorcycle. Any rider who passes the guide is disqualified. Riding a motorcycle, the guide starts at a speed of 30 km/h, gradually increases the speed up to 50 km/h, and then exits from the track after being directed by the judge at approximately 600~700 m from the finish line. Here, the riders continue the race, and the first rider to reach the finish line wins. During the final spurt, the riders cannot interfere with each other’s paths or attempt to unseat another rider. They must also maintain their own lanes to the finish line.

Team Pursuit

In team pursuit, a single team is comprised of 4 members who attempt to pass their opponents. The record of each team is recorded based on the time at which the front wheel of the 3rd member of each team arrives at the finishing line. Thus, the 3rd member of each team must attach an electronic signal-emitting device on the axis of the front wheel to measure the time. Records in this race are improved through inter-member cooperation and alternation skills between the 4-person team. At the moment a team is passed, the judge must signal both audibly and visually using a red flag. Passing is allowed when a team (at least 3 members) arrives within 1 m of the opposing team. The race is terminated the moment that the 3rd member of each team completes the designated distance and passes through the finish line. Also, the finals race is terminated at the moment that a team (at least 3 members) passes the opposing team.

Omnium
  • In omnium, the winner is determined by adding the score of 6 events of both short and long distance. For men, the events are flying lap (circling the velodrome once), 1 km time trial, 4 km individual pursuit, 15 km scratch, elimination race and 30 km points race.
  • Flying 1 Lap : A race of circling a 250 m/333 m velodrome once
  • 1km Time Trial : This event is an individual record race in which one member from each team spurts from the starting line to pass the finishing line (1 km for men and 500 m for women). The rider with the shortest record wins. The starting order is determined by the judge, and all riders start from the starting block.
  • 4 km Individual Pursuit (Elite Men : 4 km, Elite Women : 3 km)
    In the individual pursuit, one member each from two teams enters the race to start simultaneously from the starting blocks at the starting line of the center of the track and the starting line on the opposite side. The riders must attempt to pass each other while spurting 4 km for men and 3 km for women, with the rider that arrives at the finish line the quickest (starting line of the rider) winning the race. The race is conducted in a tournament fashion, with the qualifying rounds only used for record-taking. riders who have been passed during the qualifying rounds cannot pace with or pass another rider during the race, and will be disqualified for doing so. The starting line for riders in the qualifying rounds is determined by the judge. When a rider is absent in the finals, the opposing rider is declared the winner. When a rider is absent for the 1st/2nd place race, he or she is ranked 2nd, and one absent for the 3rd/4th place race is ranked as 4th. However, any rider that is absent without a fair reason is disqualified, with the corresponding rank left vacant. In the event of a false start, the starting judge will terminate the round with two gunshots. After that, the race restarts.
  • Scratch
    The scratch race is an individual event of cycling a specific distance. The distance is 10 km for Elite Women and 15 km for Elite Men. Qualifying heats will be held when there is a large number of riders. Any rider that is passed by the main group must leave the track immediately, and the final rank is determined according to the final sprint rank in consideration of the number of laps acquired. If some riders are ahead of the main group by an entire lap, the finals round judge should classify them during the last sprint in giving the rank. The judge should signal the riders by striking a bell on the final lap. This race is simple, yet speedy and interesting.
  • Elimination Race
    Riders gather at the finish line in a straight line. After the riders begin cycling at normal speed and have formed a group, they start at flying start. In a track less than 333 m in length, they are given sprints (excluding 1 rider) every 2 laps, and in a track more than 333 m in length, they are given sprints (excluding 1 rider) every 1 lap. During every sprint, as soon as the rear wheel of the rearmost rider touches the finish line, that rider is eliminated and must leave the track immediately. When only two riders remain, a final sprint finishes the race. The rank is determined at the moment the front wheel touches the finishing line. Also, a rider overlapping another by an entire lap does not count in this race. Special rules are applied to this race.
  • 30 km Points Race
    In the points race, points are given every 6 laps for a 333 m track and every 10 laps for a 250 m track to determine the rank based on the total amount of points.
Individual Road Race

This race corresponds to the marathon in Athletics; it is just as calorie consuming and demanding of a strong cardiopulmonary function. In the Olympic individual road race, the Elite Men race 220~250 km while the Elite Women race 100~140 km. This race is a road race participated in only by individual riders. The rank is determined based on the order in which the riders pass the finish line after starting simultaneously from the starting line. The athletes and coaches gather at the place where the starting sheet is to be signed, and start collectively from the starting line. All riders can mutually support each other, by lending or exchanging food, drinks, tools and parts. The riders may participate in the race while being supplied with food from designated personnel at a pre-designated feeding zone, or from their team vehicle. Feeding is prohibited during the first 50 and last 20km. Also, no vehicle can pass the riders during the last 10 km. If equipment breaks down during the race, the rider can receive support from the team's mechanic or from a neutral vehicle. The race strictly forbids riders from deviating from their selected lane or interfering with another rider during the sprint, or performing any action that may endanger another rider. The rank is determined according to the order of riders passing the finish line, and a photo-finish is mandatory. Riders within a group when passing the finishing line are considered to have an identical record time.

Individual Time Trial Road Race

The individual time trial road race is conducted on a course installed with safe and complete signboards. The Olympic cycle distance is 40~50 km for Elite Men and 20~30 km for Elite Women. The riders start at an identical time interval. This time interval can be increased for riders starting last. The start is made on the launching ramp, where the rider must be supported on the launching ramp. The rider cannot be pushed at this time, but the same person must hold onto each rider in an identical manner.The following vehicle (carrying video equipment or race officials) must follow the rider from 10 meters back, and cannot pass or approach parallel to the rider. Still, the vehicle may provide support for equipment repairs while both the rider and the vehicle are stationary, and the vehicle must not interfere with any other riders. When a rider is passed by another, the passed rider is not allowed to draft behind the slipstream of the rider in front. The passing time of the finishing line must be marked to a time that is accurate to at least 1/10 of a second.

In an MTB competition, the course is mostly closed-down forest roads or country lanes with severe climbs and descents in the terrain. This became an official Olympic event in the Atlanta 1996 Olympics. The event course is evenly mixed with climbs, descents, plains, straight lanes and curves, which require the rider to comprehensively possess various MTB techniques to win. The course must facilitate 100% use of MTBs, regardless of terrain and weather conditions.

BMX is often understood as a sort of acrobatic cycling, but the BMX event adopted by the International Cycling Union (UCI) refers to a race through a 300~400 m mogul course demanding diverse techniques, reflexes and power. The competition was first officially conducted in the United States in the early 1970s, and was introduced to Europe in 1978. The International BMX Federation established in 1981, has been hosting world championships since 1982, and was completely integrated into the UCI in 1993. Since then the UCI has been hosting world championships annually, and the event has been propagated globally and is developing rapidly. The race demands a standard BMX body and 20-inch wheels in the competition, in which the rank is determined based on the order of passing the finish line after starting from the starting gate down a slight descent and over several artificial jumps (obstacles) and sharp curves. A total of 8 riders start simultaneously in the 300~400 m stadium, and must utilize their unique speed, flexibility, power and technique to make it to the finishing line. The 4 fastest riders make it to the following round. BMX was adopted as an official event in the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, bringing even more attention to this sport.
