Asian Games Cycling Records

All the Games Records in Cycling


The 18th edition of the Asian Games has finally arrived. The pan-Asian games will be hosted by the

Indonesian cities of Jakarta and Palembang this time. Any such multi-sporting event is always a witness to a plethora of records. The Asian Games too is no exception. With sporting powerhouses from the world’s largest continent vying for medals, quite a few records have been created and broken.


The track cycling has been no stranger to records. Over the last few editions, the velodromes at the

Asian Games have seen some sizzling action and breakneck speed from the giants of Asian track

cycling. Japan and China have traditionally been the biggest superpowers in the sport of cycling overall. They have been declared the best nation in cycling as many as seven times each in these games. Although

Japan leads China in the number of medals overall in this sport (129 to 104), China can boast of

being the holder of more records in track cycling.


This time the track cycling event will begin on August 27th and will continue till August 31st . Before

action at the Jakarta International Velodrome begins, let us take a look at the existing records so far

that the track cyclists will try to break:
