Hong Kong will play host to the second round of the UCI Track Cycling Nations Cup at the Hong Kong Velodrome in Tseung Kwan O from 13-16 May, 2021. The Nations Cup consists of three events over three continents with the Hong Kong round sandwiched between the opening round in Newport, UK and the final round scheduled to take place in Cali, Colombia.

The Nations Cup series follows a restructure of the international track cycling calendar by the UCI with the three-round series replacing the six-round multi-race World Cup tournament. This truncated series further heightens the importance of the 2021 Nations Cup as each leg provides riders with precious qualification points for the Track Cycling World Championships.

Track Cycling

Track racing dates back to the end of the nineteenth century. The first World Championships were held in 1895. Track cyclists are powerful athletes, generally with far more muscle bulk than “road racers”.



  • INDIVIDUAL SPRINT (part of the Olympic programme):
    Qualification consists of flying start 200 m time trials. These are followed by knockout heats of 2-3 laps. The best two riders fight it out in the final. 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 (part of the Olympic programme):
    This speciality is raced by teams of three riders over three laps of the track (for women, 2 riders over 2 laps). Each rider leads for a lap before dropping back. After the heats, the 2 best teams line up to contest the final. Those who registered the 3rd and 4th fastest times meet up in a B final which decides the last place available on the podium.
  • KILOMETRE (or 500 m for women):
    This is an individual time trial from a standing start. The competitor with the fastest time is the winner.
  • KEIRIN (part of the Olympic programme):Keirin racing originated in Japan. Between 3 and 7 riders compete in a sprint race of 750 m after having followed in the slipstream of a pacing motorbike for the first 1,500 m. The motorbike gradually increases the speed from 30 to 50 km/h (25 to 45 km/h for women).


    Two riders start on opposite sides of the track and compete over 4 km (3 km for women). The winner is the rider who manages to catch his/her opponent or who records the fastest time.
  • TEAM PURSUIT (part of the Olympic programme):
    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.
    The final result is determined according to points gained during sprints (one every 10 laps on a 250 m track) and by laps won. At the UCI World Championships, the distance is 40 km for men and 25 km for women.
    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.The classification is established according to the distance covered and the points won in the sprints. The Madison is held over distances of 25-50 km for Elite Men depending on the competition.
    This is a race for up to 24 individual riders over 15 km for men and 10 km for women. The first lap is neutralised.


  • OMNIUM (part of the Olympic programme): 
    The omnium is made up of 4 events and is disputed 1 consecutive day. The final classification is established by adding up the finishing places in each event. The winner is the rider who has the lowest total.
Regulation   (Revised on 22/11/2016)
