Host City: Berlin, Germany
Venue(s): Avus North Curve, Berlin
Date Started: August 10, 1936
Date Finished: August 10, 1936
Format: 100 kilometre mass start race. Total time of nation's three best riders to count for team time.
The race was ridden as a mass start for the first time in Olympic history. The course was too easy to break apart the peleton, and consequently, only eight seconds separated the five teams that had three riders to finish the race. French riders finished 1st, 2nd, and =4th in the individual race, giving them a 4.2 second margin for the gold medal over Switzerland. Only five teams were actually placed, because not all individual times could be recorded due to the large pack at the finish, and the timekeeping system failed.
