Cycling at the 2021 Summer Olympics – Men's Madison

The madison is a relay race event in track cycling going to take place on 7 August 2021 at the 2021 Summer Olympics. The race will run at Izu Velodrome, a venue in Tokyo, Japan.

The race was named after the first Madison Square Garden in New York and was recognized as the American race, which was indicated of course à l'américaine in French and in Italian and Spanish as Americana.

The Madison is likely a men's Olympic pursuit in 2000, 2004, and 2008, but was scrapped ahead of the London Olympics in 2012. However, the International Olympic Committee announced in June 2017 that Madison will be added to the Olympic round for the 2020 Summer Olympics. For the first time, the 2020 Games will see a relaunch of the male madison event as well as the inclusion of the female madison as an Olympic event.

Madison is a race where more slopes have to be performed by each team than all of the other teams. During the race, riders of each team rotate, handing over to another participant, resting, and then returning to the race. Teams normally consist of two riders, but occasionally three. At any point, only one of the squad is riding, and the substitute rider has to be touched so he can take over. The contact may often be a push, sometimes on the trousers, or a hand-sling with one rider hurling the other into the race.

It is for each team to determine how long each rider will continue in the chase. Riders basically took a few hours or so of stents and the sleeping rider went away for a nap or a meal. In earlier six-day runs, it was better because hours may pass without riders struggling to speed away from the others. As races got more serious, at the same time both team riders started riding on the track, one moving quickly on the short line around the bottom of the track and the other idling further up before his turn arrived to take over. Modern six-days last less than 12 hours a day and the madison is now just a featured part, so it is more possible to remain on the track throughout.

At intervals during the race, tied positions are separated by points earned for placements at a series of races. Madison is a part of the six-day series, although, as in the Olympic Games, it may also be a different race. It has championships and professional riders of its own. Generally, a max distance of 50 kilometers for UCI-sanctioned madison races (31 mi).
