TOKIO 2020

Ciclismo en Pista Olímpico

By Phil Bainbridge

July 23, 2021 - August 8, 2021 - Los Juegos Olímpicos de Verano, los Juegos de la XXXII Olimpiada, se realizan en Tokio, Japón. Con la reintroducción de la Madison, habrá seis competencias masculinas y femeninas de ciclismo en pista. La otras cinco son sprint, sprint de equipo, keirin, persecución equipos y omnium - una combinación de cuatro disciplinas.

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.
