Formats

Sprint

Sprint races are generally between 8 and 10 laps in length and focus on raw sprinting power and race tactics over a small number of laps to defeat opponents. Sprint riders will train specifically to compete in races of this length and will generally not compete in longer endurance races.

The main sprint events are:

  • Sprint
  • Team sprint
  • Keirin
  • Track time trial

Endurance

Endurance races are held over much longer distances. While these primarily test the riders endurance abilities, the ability to sprint effectively is also required in the Madison, points race and scratch race. The length of these races varies from 12–16 laps for the individual and team pursuit races, up to 120 laps for a full length Madison race in World Championships or Olympic Games.

The main endurance events are:

  • Individual pursuit
  • Team pursuit
  • Scratch race
  • Points race
  • Madison
  • Omnium
  • Handicap or Hare and Hounds
  • Miss and Out, elimination
