The Paris 2024 Olympic Mascot pedals at full speed to outrun its opponents on the track.
Track cycling is a historic Olympic discipline that has been around since the first Games of the modern era. It is run in a velodrome in a variety of individual and team speed event formats. A velodrome has a 250m track with sharp bends, on which cyclists move with impressive ease. There are many different types of races that take place on the track, each with its own specificities, some relying more on tactics or power than others.
