Cycling at the 2004 Summer Games: Previous Summer Games ▪ Next Summer Games


Host City: Athina, Greece
Venue(s): Olympic Velodrome, Athens Olympic Sports Complex Spiros Loues, Maroussi
Date Started: August 25, 2004
Date Finished: August 25, 2004

Gold: AUS Ryan Bayley
Silver: ESP José Antonio Escuredo
Bronze: AUS Shane Kelly


The first round had three heats with the top two in each advancing to the second round, followed by three repêchage heats that advanced two riders from each of three heats. The top three in each semi-final went to the final, while the 4th-6th place finishers competed in a race for 7-12 places. In the final, [Ryan Bayley] went off the front shortly after the derny dropped off the track. He opened a big lead quickly and was unchallenged in winning his second gold medal of the Athina Olympics, following his gold medal in the sprint the day before. [René Wolff] (GER) was the third rider over the line, but was relegated for “moving outward with the intention of forcing the opponent going up.” Another rider in the final who was relegated was [Josiah Ng], who competed for Malaysia, which has not produced many top cyclists.
