Cycling Categories for Commonwealth Games 2010

The 19th Commonwealth Games at New Delhi, India in 2010 will feature 17 sports disciplines. The Indian game of Kabaddi will be a demonstration game, while triathlon might not be included beecause of lack of a suitable location. Generally, the CWG features, basketball as well, but the Delhi Games organisers have proposed removing it and instead adding archery, tennis, billiards and snookers for men.

Cycling was included in CWG in 1934 at London Games. The Delhi version will have 12 track events, with eight events for men and 4 events for women. There would also be two road events for men and women.
