UCI announces Rio Olympic Games Track schedule

Men's team sprint qualifying first event

The UCI has announced the track schedule for this summer's Rio Olympic Games with the men's sprint qualifying the first event to take place in the velodrome. The track events start on day six of the Games, August 11, one day after the conclusion of the road events.

The majority of the track events will be held in the afternoon and into the evening when the finals will take place. The final event of the Rio Olympic Games will be the women's sprint.

For Rio, the track events are the men's and women's sprint and team sprint, Keirin, team pursuit and omnium which are the same track events from London 2012.

Great Britain dominated the track medals four years ago with medals in every event bar the women's team sprint.

With the company initially contracted to build the velodrome, Tecnosolo, filling for bankruptcy protection, there have been doubts regarding whether it will be ready in time for the Games. However, the organising committee of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games insists the velodrome will be completed by the end of June.

All events will be held in Rio's Olympic Velodrome.
