LocationVelódromo de Horta, Barcelona
Participants32 from 32 countries

José Manuel Moreno was the defending World Champion and the favorite of the hometown fans. He was the last rider to go off but was fully warmed up. The Spanish authorities had him warm up at a nearby track and he was then brought to the Vélodrom d’Horta by helicopter. Moreno started slowly but was easily the fastest rider on the final two laps. His time of 1:03.342 was an Olympic best for an outdoor track. The fifth-place rider was Italy’s Adler Capelli who rode a bike that allowed a single gear change, a first for Olympic track. The defending champion, Aleksandr Kirichenko (EUN), placed 12th.
