Cycling at the 2021 Summer Olympics – Men's Omnium
Men’s Omnium is one of the track cycling races going to run on 8 August 2021 at the Izu Velodrome in Tokyo, Japan. In track cycling, the event is usually a multiple race event. The Omnium has traditionally seen several formats. Road racing has also used the term in recent years to describe multi-day competitions that feature the three major road competition events including a time trial, mass start, and criterium.
As a five-race track cycling system for men in 2007, the omnium was re-incorporated to the World Championships. In 2010, the UCI updated the omnium to incorporate the elimination race and expanded the lengths of the competitions to favor endurance cyclists. At the Summer Olympic Games starting in 2012, the Omnium replaced the individual pursuit, the points sprint, and the individual time trial.
Usually, the omnium competition was designed with extreme six events. Riders collect points based on their position during the first five events, while they will gain points during the final points competition by winning sprints and catching laps during the event.
As the event goes to a time trial, a criterium, and a mass-start road race, usually held over a weekend or other 2-3 day duration. Points are given at each event to the top finishers and totalized at the finishing of the event. Based on the number of total points, the ultimate winner for the event is decided. Often, to qualify for the overall reward, organizers will specify that riders must finish each event.
The three timed events after the 2016 season were all withdrawn from the program, a tempo run was introduced, and the event was reduced to a single day together with the sprint time trial, flying lap, and individual pursuit. With slight changes, the points race remains as the final race format. The Omnium winner is the rider who has won the highest number of points. The place in the last sprint of the last event, the Points Race, breaks the tie in the case of a tie in the final ranking. Furthermore, any event in the Omnium must have been completed by a rider.
Here is Elia Viviani (Italy) who became the gold medalist in the 2016 Summer Olympics. He won first place by defeating Mark Cavendish (Great Britain) and Lasse Norman Hansen (Denmark).
