Track Events

Keirin:
An electric bike sets the pace at the front of the pack and cannot be overtaken. In the final 700m, the pacer leaves the track and the athletes race as fast as they can to the finish line.

Omnium:
Known as the decathlon or heptathlon of cycling, with riders competing in six disciplines that demand both power and endurance: a flying lap time trial, points race, elimination race, individual pursuit, scratch race and time trial. The athlete who accumulates the highest points total is the winner.
