Cycling at the 1896 Summer Olympics - Men's 100 kilometres

The men's 100 kilometres was one of five track cycling events on the Cycling at the 1896 Summer Olympics programme. It was the first race held, on 8 April. It required cyclists to complete 300 circuits of the track.

Results

Nine cyclists started the race, but only two finished it. The winner, Léon Flameng, had fallen midway through the race but continued on to win the gold medal. Georgios Kolettis of Greece had completed 289 laps at that point, and finished fairly soon after Flameng.
