Cycling

It ain’t as easy as just riding a bike: The Olympics have four different bikes to choose from. How do you tell them apart?

BMX = (dirt bike + long-sleeved shirt + pants + full head helmet with face shield) * dirt-covered obstacle course

Mountain Biking = (mountain bike + cycling shirt + bike shorts + vented bike helmet) * off-road course

Road = (thin-tired bike + cycling shirt + bike shorts + vented bike helmet) * street course

Track = (bike with covered wheels + cycling shirt + bike shorts + futuristic aerodynamic helmet with face shield) * banked oval track
