The program was the same as in 1924 – a single road race that awarded both individual and team medals, and four track events – match sprint, tandem match sprint, team pursuit, and the 50 km. race. The road race began and ended near the [Stade Olympique de Colombes], and was conducted as an individual time trial over 188 km. The team segment consisted of four riders for each nation with the three best times of the four riders to count towards the team time. The track races were held on the [Vélodrome Municipal de Vincennes], a 500 metre cement track and the same site that had been used for the 1900 Olympic events.
