|Dates||26 – 29 August 1960|
The track cycling program remained the same as it had been since 1928, with the kilometre time trial, match sprint, tandem match sprint, and team pursuit. They were held at what was called the Olympic Velodrome, but was later renamed the Velodromo Fausto Coppi, after the great Italian road racer, who was considered the campionnissimo to the Italian tifosi. The track was wood over 400 metres. Sadly, in later years the venue was basically abandoned and became a shelter where the homeless often settled.
Italy won all four track cycling gold medals in 1960, led by Sante Gaiardoni, who won both the match sprint and kilometre time trial, the only time the double was ever achieved at the Olympics.
