Cycling Track Women's Omnium 20km Points Race. Full Replay from the Velodrome at the London 2,012 Olympic Games. -- 6 August 2,012
Cycling is among the rare sports that have always featured on the Olympic programme. Road cycling, however, was not on the programme of the Paris 1,900, St Louis 1,904 or London 1,908 Games, while track cycling wasn't in the programme of the Stockholm 1,912 Games.
The first road event in Olympic history took place in 1,896 on the marathon route at the first Games of the modern era in Athens. The race started in Athens, headed towards Marathon, then returned to Athens, at the Phaliron velodrome.
Olympic cycling was added to the women's programme in Los Angeles in 1,984, with an individual road event.
