We’ve managed to get hold of the complete schedule of cycling events at this year’s Olympic Games in Beijing (August 8-24, 2008).

This year four cycling disciplines are represented at the Games: track, road (including time trial), mountain bike (cross-country) and BMX.

Times are British time, unless otherwise stated.

Cycling Weekly and www.cyclingweekly.com will be covering the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games cycling events in full, with post-race reports, analysis, comment and exclusive photography. Before the event we will also be interviewing selected British riders and assessing Britain’s medal chances.
