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.

GMBN Vs GCN | From Here To There: MTB Vs Road Bike Challenge

A question older than time itself, which is faster? A road bike on the road, or a mountain bike off road? To find out we went to Snowdonia National Park with the new Garmin Edge 530 and Edge 830. Will the more direct off road route be faster than the longer but smoother road route? Watch now to find out!

In association with Garmin.

The objective; find some welshcakes before racing to a picturesque picnic spot underneath a waterfall. The riders; our very own Neil Donoghue, and the contender, Hank from GCN. The routes (planned with Komoot); Neil will be taking on a 16 mile off road point to point, stopping off to get welsh cakes on his way to the waterfall; Hank will have 34 miles to cover, picking up the welsh cakes before doubling back on himself to get to the finish. The new Garmins feature MTB Dynamics, technology that measures your airtime, the difficulty of your ride, and rider skill (known as Grit and Flow). Rider to rider messaging will help Hank and Neil let each other know when they’ve secured their Welsh cakes. The live track feature will let them know if they need to get a move on!

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.

HD 2017 Road Bicycle Racing - Circuit Race Final Moments and Crash

Location: Boyds, Maryland
Click Show More ↓
Race: Black Hill Circuit Race 3/4

Tensions are high as we approach the finish. Riders moving up the right side and a blown up rider in front of me leads to me losing my position near the front. I take a risky move going between 2 riders which leads to me tapping the brakes and then out of no where a crash.

Q: What kind of bike do you have?
A: 2014 Diamondback Podium with a Shimano 6800 Groupset.

Q: What camera/software do you use to make these videos?
A: Gopro 4 Black 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.

Racing Crits in NEW YORK! (Grants Tomb Crit RACEDAY)

I got an amazing opportunity to race Grants Tomb Crit in New York! I raced two races around one of the most beautiful race courses I have ever seen. The fields were STACKED and the racing was fast.

I was in New York for Zwift, but decided to extend my stay through to the weekend so I could race Grants Tomb Criterium. It was a great choice. In this cycling racing video, we pick up on my last day in New York city. I take you through the race day from morning to night like usual, but this time we are riding bikes in NEW YORK!.

I spoke with both the winners from my races (Butcherbox Cycling), which if I was a real vegan I would have stoped Butcherbox from getting the top step. I lost a few vegan cult XP points this weekend, thats for sure.

I have 4 more videos coming from this trip, a video about the Zwift event, my Veloguide experience, the breakdown of the racing, and my overall thoughts of New York as I ride through the city for the first time.

I CANT EXPRESS HOW MUCH LOVE I GOT FROM THE NEW YORK CYCLING SCENCE! It was insane bro, its something I will never forget and I am truly humbled by your love new york!

There are no friends in racing (A Crit Race Breakdown)

This is the breakdown of the Merced Crit in P/1/2/3 field. There are no friends in racing is the phrase that was thrown around after the race. So I breakdown how I got 2nd but I made a huge mistake that cost me a chance at the win.

I talk walk through all the important moves in this race and my thoughts as it unfolded. I did a vlog on this day so you kinda already know what happens but I go a little more indepth into the tactics.

At the end I talk about sportsmanship a bit, this is in NO WAY saying anyone who plays tactics is not a a good sport. Smart racing is smart racing, but I share my thoughts on racing with advanced tactics like sitting in on a break and working.

Crit racing is very fun and I love it. I just love racing period. But to win a race at this level, I either need to be 30% stronger or play the game, even when it feels dirty.

Going Conti ... it was the phrase of 2017 for us in the domestic racing bubble, and I'll be honest, I pretty much had to google what it all meant.

So with that in mind and with Cycling Australia releasing the National Road Series calendar today, I thought I might share a little bit about what I've learnt in the last few months specifically how this whole racing thing works.

Now before you do all drop off to sleep, I do want to make something clear, I'm certainly not having a go at teams whose ambition see's them taking UCI continental licences, I'm merely talking about how increasing the race days or riders and racers is probably more beneficial then increasing certain grading points at this stage in our sports development.

Finally guys, I genuinely want to thank you for all your comments and kind words lately. I'm delighted you guys have been enjoying the working I've been putting in, and it spurs me on to improve.
