Curious about the magic of the track?
For those new to track cycling: track cycling is an explosive sport and takes place on oval tracks with steep curves specially designed for these cutting-edge races. Technological advances also play a big role in track cycling, and thanks to increasingly sophisticated bikes and equipment, speeds will undoubtedly again be higher than we have ever seen.
But it's not just about speed. Track cycling is also a strategic game where the difference between winning and losing is determined by tiny little details. It is like chess on wheels. Every move counts. Every second is crucial. And the athletes? They are the masters of this brutal game.
