Tokyo Olympics Cycling Schedule

Here is the full list of the “2021” Tokyo Olympic Games cycling schedule including road, cross-country and track. The 2020¬†Olympic Games¬†(reschedule to 2021 because of the coronavirus pandemic) kick off this Saturday, July 24 with the men’s and women’s road races two of the first events to award medals in Tokyo.

Most events can be watched live on nbcolympics.com.

Men’s and Women’s Road Events

The men’s road race begins at Musashinonomori Park to the west of Tokyo for a 234km race to the Fuji International Speedway that goes over three major climbs. While Mount Fuji might be the most iconic, coming after 140km, the much steeper Mikuni Pass, which the men tackle with 34km to go, will undoubtedly prove more decisive. Whoever hasn’t been dislodged there will have to hold on over the shorter Kagosaka Pass for the 12km run-in to the finish on the speedway.

The women’s race on July 25 is almost 100km shorter and leaves out these two climbs but still includes the Doushi Road and Kagosaka Pass – climbing over 1000m – before the rolling 40km to the finish.
