Olympic and Paralympic Cycling
Cycling events in the Games
Since the success of both the para and able-bodied teams cycling has become arguably our best sport in the games. It has also had a soar in popularity in the UK. Olympic cycling consists of four events which are track, road, BMX and Mountain biking while the paralympic cycling is just road and track. Tactics, strategy, stamina and raw speed play a part in these events.
