Cyclists (approx. 60 men and 30 women) representing the different nations and territories from across the Commonwealth will take part in the event.
Each rider sets off at minute intervals, and they focus on achieving the fastest time possible without having to ride alongside other cyclists. Each rider is timed individually, with the fastest rider winning the gold medal.
It’s an event that always proves to be one of the most popular at the Games, transforming regular roads into an arena for elite sport and bringing the excitement of a major sporting event to people’s doorsteps.
