Cycling at the 2021 Summer Olympics – Men's team pursuit
The men's cycling team pursuit is a track cycling event similar to the individual pursuit at the 2021 Summer Olympics in Tokyo will take place at the Izu Velodrome on 04 August 2021.
The course is generally expanded up to 4000 meters. Nearly 18 teams of 4 cyclists each competed in the race. As with the individual pursuit, the goal is to traverse the distance in the quickest time or to catch and pass the other team in a final. Riders in the team progress together closely in line, drafting to depreciate total drag, and systematically the lead rider who gives the hard effort peels off the front, going up the track banking, and counters the team at the rear.
The place of the third rider is important because final times are determined when the front wheel of the third team member passes the winning line. Since the victorian team is determined by the third rider, it is general for one rider to take a death pull pedaling quite hard to tow the teammates before the finish, which means that afterward, this rider will not hold the group-pace. This makes it feasible for their teammates to rebound momentarily behind them before allowing a final three-man acceleration towards the finish line.
At major events, the first round of the race is the qualification round. This also requires two teams at the same time on the sprint, so they are not running straight against each other, but aiming to set the best time to succeed in the race. The top teams have qualified for knock-out rounds of the Olympics since 2012, with the top two remaining in the Gold and Silver medal match with the top two teams from those left racing in the Bronze Medal race.
Until 2012, the two knock-out round losers competed for the Bronze Medal; this move was made to improve results from all qualifying teams, and, based on their performance, everyone would get a chance to race for a medal. The top two teams from the qualifying round advance right to the Gold and Silver medal race in the World Championships or World Cup Classic events, while the third and fourth qualifiers battle it out for bronze.
In recent time, we have found four brilliant winners from the 2016 Summer Olympics including Ed Clancy, Steven Burke, Owain Doull, and Bradley Wiggins. They are all from Great Britain and won the gold medal with superb accomplishments.
