  • Points race: a 20 km (12.4 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 3 km (1.9 mi) individual pursuit, with placing based on time.
  • Scratch race: a 10 km (6.2 mi) scratch race, with all riders competing at once and first across the line winning.
  • Time trial: a 500 m (1,640.4 ft) time trial, with two riders (starting opposite the track) riding at once.
