Events: A new four event format sees riders battle it out across scratch race, tempo race, elimination race and points races.
Scoring: The winner of each event will be awarded 40 points for a win, 38 for second, 36 for third and working its way down to 21st. Riders in 21st place and below will be awarded one point each.
The riders' overall points tally is then taken into the final round points race and added to, or subtracted from (should they lose a lap) with double points on offer in the final sprint.
The rider who finishes the points race with the highest points tally will be awarded the gold medal.
