NZ Newswire Updated July 5, 2012, 10:37 am

Cycling at the Olympics - how it works for BMX:

32 men, 16 women

Held on a circuit of 320-370m, which features an 8m-high start ramp and various corners and jumps.

Contact between riders often occurs during racing and crashes are frequent.

Qualifying:

Each competitor has one time trial run over the circuit, with the better time determining his or her seeding for the quarter-finals (men) and the semi-finals (women).

Racing:

The men's quarter-finals are held over five runs, with points for places on each run.

After three runs, the best two riders from each quarter-final progress to the semi-finals.

The remaining riders compete in the final two quarter-final runs and the best two from each quarter-final also progress to the semis.

The semis follow a three-run format. The top four riders from each semi-final advance to the final, where the medals are decided over one run.
