Twelve teams started with eight qualifying for the first round of four heats of match racing. The two winners in the first round with the fastest time were Germany, the defending world champions, and Japan, and they advanced to the gold medal race. France and Australia won their heats but had the slower times and faced off for the bronze medals. In the final, Germany was led out by Jens Fiedler, the 2004 sprint, keirin, and team sprint World Champion, and gave them the lead. Japan could never overcome that and had to settle for the silver medal, which was still considered a surprise as they had never medaled in this event at the Worlds. In the bronze medal race, France defeated Australia by a narrow margin. In addition to Fiedler, Germany had a very strong team as René Wolff won the bronze in the sprint, and Stefan Nimke had won two pursuit medals at the Olympics.
