This event is composed of a qualifying round being a flying start 200 m time trial that determines the composition of the 1/16-finals consisting of knockout heats of 2 riders (the first is against the last, the second against the penultimate, etc.). Each won duel allows the athlete to continue the tournament until the finals. From the ¼ finals, the duels are on a best of three heats basis. After the slow start and a cat and mouse game, the pace picks up.
