In 1896 was the first cycling-match, 100 km long. The track had a length of 333,33 m and you had to drive 300 rounds.
After 1945 was in the cycle-racesport the first drugscandal. In 1960 got 2 Danish cyclers a collapse and one of them (Knut Jensen) died. Many people thought that it a sunstroke was, but it happened that those two a too high dose of a stimulating remedy for the circulation of the blood had taken in.
In 1936 won the Frenchman Robert Charpentier with 0,2 seconds lead from his teamfellow. But there was something strange about that, the one who became second hold in before the finish. The officials viewed the finishfoto, and they saw that Charpentier at the shirt of the other pulled.
By the 100 km in 1896 was the Frenchman Léon Flameng far ahead of his rival (a Greek, it was his only rival in that match), but the cycle of the Greek broke down. The Frenchman got off, and waitted until the Greek had a new cycle, and went cycling again. Charpentier won with 6 laps lead.
In 1992 got Ingrid Haringa (the Netherlands) the bronze medal by the sprint, and in 1988 was she a speed-skater in Calgary.
