Team Sprint: This specialty race has men in teams of three, competing over three laps of the track. Women's teams compete in teams of two, over two laps.
Keirin: Keirin racing originated in Japan. The race begins with three to seven riders following in the slipstream of a pacing motorbike for 1,400 metres. From there, the riders compete in a sprint race of 600 - 700 metres.
Team Pursuit: Two teams of four riders start on opposite sides of the track and compete over four km (16 laps) of the track. The distance for the Team Pursuit is the same for men and women.
The Omnium: The Omnium takes place over two consecutive days and is made up of six events. The final classification is established by adding up the finishing places in each event. The winner is the individual rider who has the lowest total combined score.
