Cycling at the 1908 Summer Olympics


Cycling at the 1908 Summer Olympics

At the 1908 Summer Olympics, seven track cycling events were contested, all for men only. The weather was poor, flooding the track on occasion.[1] The track was 660 yards long (being built around the perimeter of the White City Stadium's athletics track); some events (the 660 yards and the team pursuit) used full laps of the track; the others used metric distances.
