In track cycling, the Olympic podium is the highest you can reach. It’s the ultimative goal. The pinnacle.
It’s all about raw physical power, tactics, optimizing equipment and aerodynamics. It has it all!

A Video Diary Leading up to Tokyo
We will follow the Danish Olympic Track Cycling team on their way to Tokyo 2020.
We will be with the team, when they are chasing crucial UCI points in the World Cup to qualify for the Olympic Games, when they are training on the Danish country roads throughout winter, when they are evaluating tactics in the arena, when they are testing and optimizing their equipment, etc.
