Olympic Men's Kilometer Time Trial (Track) Results

The kilometer (often called the "Kilo") is a individual track race timed from a standing start. It is an event at which sprinters excel.

Generally competitors use fully aerodynamic bikes with front and rear disc wheels.

In 2005 it was decided that the very popular men's 1,000 meter time trial as well as the women's 500 meter time trial be dropped to make room for BMX in the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Wait, the kilo has been given a reprieve, it's now part of the Omnium.
