TOKYO 2020

Olympisches Bahnradrennen

By Phil Bainbridge

July 23, 2021 - August 8, 2021 - Die Olympischen Sommerspiele 2020 werden in Tokio abgehalten. Mit der Wiedereinführung von Madison gib es je sechs Männer und Frauen Bewerbe im Bahnradrennen, sonst gibt es noch Sprint, Team Sprint, Keirin, Team Pursuit und Omnium, eine Kombination aus vier Disziplinen.

To varying degrees, strategy and tactics are key to track cycling events, to conserve energy by using the air resistance of the rider in front - by sharing the lead with a member of your own team or, in individual events, by allowing the opponent to take the lead.

The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games feature 339 events in 33 different sports, encompassing 50 disciplines. It is the second time that Japan, and specifically Tokyo, has hosted the Summer Olympic Games – the first being in 1964.
