Olympic Cycling 2016: Dates, Start Times, TV Schedule, Live Stream


The 2016 Olympic cycling competitions promise to produce thrills, and even some spills, in and around Rio de Janeiro.

The world’s best bikers will vie for glory on the men’s and women’s sides from Aug. 6 through Aug. 21 in each major discipline: BMX, mountain bike, road time trial, road race, sprint, keirin, omnium, team sprint and team pursuit.

Expectations are low for the United States men’s cyclists. The opposite is the case for the American women, who count themselves among the favorites for gold medals in a number of categories.

Take a look below at the full event schedule, TV listings and live stream info.

All Olympic events will be live streamed and can be seen online at NBCOlympics.com.
