Competition formatEdit

The omnium competition consisted of six events, with a point-for-place system.[2] In case of a tie on points the time trial counts.[citation needed]

  • Flying lap: an individual time trial over 250 m (820.2 ft) with a "flying start".
  • Points race: a 30 km (18.6 mi) points race, with scoring for intermediate sprints as well as for lapping the pack.
  • Elimination race: a "miss-and-out" elimination race, with the last rider in every sprint (each two laps) eliminated.
  • Individual pursuit: a 4 km (2.5 mi) individual pursuit, with placing based on time.
  • Scratch race: a 15 km (9.3 mi) scratch race, with all riders competing at once and first across the line winning.
  • Time trial: a 1 km (0.6 mi) time trial, with two riders (starting opposite the track) riding at once.
