Road cycling began as an organised Sport in 1868. The first World Championships were held in 1893 and it has been a part of the Olympics in the whole of the modern era. Road Cycling has 2 main types of competition – the Road Race and the Time Trial.

In a Road Race, the riders start together in a bunch. The courses are of varying distances (approx. 260 km for Elite Men and 140km for Elite Women in the UCI World Championships).

Road Races have several different formats. They can be held on a circuit in which riders race over numerous laps like in the UCI Road World Championships; over one-day from one point to another like the Paris to Roubaix Race; or in Stage races in which riders race on consecutive days like the Tour de France.

In the Individual Time Trial the riders set off 1-2 minutes apart, with the reigning Champion leaving last. Without the motivation of other riders around them and the slipstream advantage of bunch riding, the time trial competitor must rely on huge mental strength to keep up the pace and cover the course in the fastest time possible. At the UCI World Championships and Olympic Games, the individual time trial is raced over 40-50 km for Elite Men and 20-30 km for Elite Women.

In a Team Time Trial the principle is the same as for the individual, but teams of between 2 and 10 riders who remain together along the course race this event. The team time trial is on the programme at the UCI Road World Championships as of 2012 (6 riders per team) and is open to UCI ProTeams, UCI Professional Continental Teams, UCI Continental Teams and UCI Women’s Teams.

FAQ
Q: What kind of bike do you have?
A: 2014 Diamondback Podium Equipe with a Shimano Ultegra 6800 groupset.

Q: What camera/software do you use to make these videos?
A: Gopro 2 camera, Garmin 500 to collect data, and software called Dashware to put it together.

Q: Any advice for new cyclists to get into racing?
A: To start racing, begin by just riding on your own. Start with the basics. Get used to controlling your bike. You may need practice using drop handlebars on a road bike, switching gears, braking, proper fit on the bike, descending, cornering, climbing (learn not to fear hills and mountains), sprinting, practicing intervals, base training, putting on more miles or kilometers than you’re used to each week, motivating yourself, eating healthy, staying hydrated every day, losing weight, and basic bike maintenance. Before you win your local criterium or win the State Championship, you’ll have to study up on and practice these things. Ignoring these things may result in you being in a top 10 worst crashes video on Youtube.

Even if you’re a fast rider already, bicycle racing is not always won by the strongest. Once you have the basics down, you need to join up with some local group rides. Learn the etiquette of riding in a group. Learn how to ride in an echelon. Learn how to avoid overlapping your front wheel. Learn how to draft. Get comfortable riding in close proximity to other riders, maybe even the accidental bump every once and awhile. Learn how to hold your line going through a corner in a pack. Look into joining a team that supports new riders. Ask for advice. Take constructive criticism from riders you trust.

When you sign up for your first race, don’t panic. It’s no big deal. No one cares if you get dropped or lap the field. Cat 5 is for learning. Practice riding smooth and drafting other riders. Look out for riders who are unpredictable or unsteady and either get in front of them or far away.

How To Ride Steep Climbs On A Road Bike

We love a good steep climb here at GCN, well maybe except for Lasty, but we know that a lot of riders hate them and sometimes even avoid riding them altogether! So Emma and Si have some tips to improve your riding on steep climbs, and even learn to love them.

The crucial difference between a steep and a gradual climb, is that you’re not moving very fast. This sounds really obvious but it deserves consideration: because the speed is so slow, one has much less forwards momentum…and a lot of backwards acceleration due to gravity.

This means that if you stop putting force through the pedals, your bike stops moving and you risk falling off. ie the dead spots in your pedal stroke, which you can usually coast through with the forward momentum of riding on the flat, are actually a challenge on a steep climb.

It’s a personal choice as to whether you prefer to stay seated or stand on climbs. But it’s a good idea to train specifically what you struggle with - that gives you more options. I trained at overgeared seated efforts for when I had to sit on longer steep climbs. If conversely you struggle riding out of the saddle - well, practice it! It’s a really useful technique for steep hills because you can get so much more torque through the pedals when you stand.

Men's Sprint 1/16 Final Repechages - London 2012 Olympics

Highlights of the Men's Track Sprint 1/16 Final Repechages during the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Cycling is among the rare sports that have always featured on the Olympic programme. Road cycling, however, was not on the programme of the Paris 1900, St Louis 1904 or London 1908 Games, while track cycling wasn't in the programme of the Stockholm 1912 Games.
The first road event in Olympic history took place in 1896 on the marathon route at the first Games of the modern era in Athens. The race started in Athens, headed towards Marathon, then returned to Athens, at the Phaliron velodrome.
Olympic cycling was added to the women's programme in Los Angeles in 1984, with an individual road event.

BOTTICHER v DMITRIEV Gold Mens Sprint Final Race , 2013 UCI World Track Championships

BOTTICHER, GER v DMITRIEV, RUS, Gold Mens Sprint Final Race , 2013 UCI World Track Championships

Track cycling dates back to at least 1870 and, with the exception of 1912, has played a part in every Olympics in the modern era. Track Cycling events can be roughly split into 2 disciplines -- Sprinting and Endurance

Sprint Events:
Individual Sprint
This is a very tactical event in which riders try to outmanoeuvre their opponents. Sometimes riders will come to a standstill in an effort to make their opponent take the lead, which is the least advantageous position before the final sprint to the finish line.

Team Sprint
This spectacular form of racing sees two teams start off on opposite sides of the track. It is raced by teams of three riders over three laps for Elite Men and two riders over two laps for Elite Women. Each rider leads for a lap before dropping back.

Kilometre / 500m Time Trial
This is an individual time trial from a standing start. Elite Men race over 1km and Elite Women over 500 m. The competitor with the fastest time is the winner.

Keirin
Keirin racing originated in Japan. Contested over 2 km, the field of three to seven riders follows a pacing motorbike at an increasing speed, all the while jostling for position. When the motorbike pulls off the track with two and a half laps to go, the battle begins to win the sprint to the finish.

Endurance Events:
Individual Pursuit
Two riders start on opposite sides of the track and compete over 4 km for Elite Men and 3 km for Elite Women. The winner is the rider who manages to catch his/her opponent or who records the fastest time.

Team Pursuit
Two teams of 4 riders (3 riders for women) start on opposite sides of the track and compete over 4 km (3 km for women). The winning team is the one that manages to catch its opponents or that records the fastest time.

Points Race
This superbly tactical discipline is contested over a long distance, usually 40 km for men and 25 km for women in major events. The final result is determined according to points gained during sprints (one every 10 laps on a 250 m track) and when a rider manages to lap the rest of the field.

Madison
Up to 18 teams of two riders take part in this relay race contested by means of intermediary sprints. While one team member races, the other slows down to take a rest. When he rejoins the race, his teammate throws him into the action with a hand sling. The classification is established according to the distance covered and the points won in the sprints (every 20 laps). The Madison is held over distances of 25-50 km for Elite Men depending on the competition.

Scratch Race
This is a race for up to 24 individual riders over 15 km for men and 10 km for women. The first across the finish line is the winner.

Omnium
The omnium is made up of 6 events and is disputed over 2 consecutive days. The final classification is established by adding up the finishing places in each event. The winner is the rider who has the lowest total. At the 2012 London Olympics, the omnium comprised a Flying lap, a Points race, an Individual pursuit, a Scratch Race, a Kilometre / 500m time trial and an Elimination Race.
