Competition formatEdit

The omnium competition consists of six events. During the first five events, riders receive points depending on their place, while during the final points race they can obtain points by winning sprints and taking laps during the event.[2]

  • Scratch race: a 15 km (9.3 mi) scratch race, with all riders competing at once and first across the line winning.
  • Individual pursuit: a 4 km (2.5 mi) individual pursuit, with placing based on time.
  • Elimination race: a "miss-and-out" elimination race, with the last rider in every sprint (each two laps) eliminated.
  • Time trial: a 1 km (0.6 mi) time trial, with two riders (starting opposite the track) riding at once.
  • Flying lap: an individual time trial over 250 m (820.2 ft) with a "flying start".
  • Points race: a 40 km (24.9 mi) points race, with scoring for intermediate sprints as well as for lapping the pack.
