The 1896 Classic Marathon Race Revival
The most epic race of all times
At the first Modern Olympic Games the sport of cycling was introduced. There were several track cycling events held at the newly build Phaliron Velodrome (Stadio Karaiskaki) and one road cycling event. At that time the “bicycle” was quite a novice idea people were not familiar with. Gears, brakes and deralleurs were not yet invented and all bicycles were fixed gear and brakeless.The only road race of the Games took place on April 12. It was 87 kilometres long, with contestants cycling to the village of Marathon and back.
