Commonwealth Games 2014, Glasgow, Scotland: July 23-August 3

Commonwealth Games 2018, Gold Coast, Australia: April 4-15

The Commonwealth Games currently features four cycling categories: track, road race, time trial and mountain bike.

The 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow were largely dominated by British riders (albeit competing as England, Scotland, Wales etc), Australians and New Zealanders.

Three of the four gold medallists on the road were British — Alex Dowsett (Eng) in the men’s time trial, Geraint Thomas (Wal) in the men’s road race, and Lizzie Armitstead (Eng) in the women’s road race. Emma Pooley (Eng) claimed silver in the women’s time trial.

At the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome, there were seven gold medals for Australia, four for New Zealand, and four for England (Joanna Rowsell in the women’s 3,000m individual pursuit and Laura Trott in the women’s points race, plus wins in the women’s Para-Sport 1000m Time Trial B Tandem and Sprint B Tandem). Scotland won two gold medals on home turf, both in the men’s Para-Sport B Tandem events.

The Commonwealth Games 2018 in Gold Coast, Australia, begin on April 4. The road race and time trial will take place at the Merv Craig Sporting Complex at Elanora / Currumbin, the mountain biking in Nerang, and the track events at a new velodrome in Brisbane.
