Event Details:

Flying 200
You will be timed for 200 meters from a rolling start. This time will determine which category you will race in for the rest of the day.

A mass-start race with 6-9 sprint riders and a paced start. Riders draw lots to determine starting positions and start as the pacer (usually a motorcycle, a derny, or a tandem bicycle) approaches. The riders are required to remain behind the pacer, which starts at the deliberately slow speed of about 25 km/h, gradually increases in speed and leaves the track approximately 600–700 meters before the end, at a speed of about 50 km/h. The first cyclist to finish the race is the winner. Keirin races are about 2 kilometers in length.

Devil takes the Hindmost (Miss and Out)
At the end of every set number of laps the last rider to cross the line is eliminated from the race. When just a handful of riders remain, they sprint for the finish.

Team Pursuit (you pick your own teams)
Competed over a distance of 4 km by a team of 4 riders. As with the Individual pursuit the objective is to cover the distance in the fastest time or to catch and overtake the other team in a final. Riders in a team follow each other closely in line to minimise total drag, and periodically the lead rider (who works the hardest) peels off the front, swings up the track banking and rejoins the team at the rear. Since the winning team is decided by the third rider, it is common for one rider to take a “death pull,” where they ride so hard that they cannot maintain the group-pace afterwards. This allows their team-mates to briefly recover behind him before they make a final three-man acceleration towards the finish line.
If there are enough women racing, each team will be required to have at least one woman on it.
