Rio Olympics Cycling Track Competition Details

By the late 19th century track races were attracting crowds in England. Competitions were held on indoor wooden tracks that resemble the modern velodromes of today. Indoor tracks allowed year round competition regardless of weather conditions.

Track cycling events have appeared at every edition of the Games since 1896, with the exception of the 1912 Games in Stockholm, when only the road race was staged.

Women have competed in track events since the Seoul Games of 1988, followed by the individual pursuit in 1992. At the Sydney Games in 2000, several track events were introduced: 500m time trial for women, but also keirin, American and sprint for men.
