Cycling at the 2004 Summer Olympics had 18 events in three disciplines:

In total, 464 cyclists participated, of which 334 men and 130 women, from 61 countries. The youngest participant was Ignatas Konovalovas, at 18 years, while the oldest was Jeannie Longo, at 45 years. The most successful contestant became Bradley Wiggins, who won three medals, one gold, one silver and one bronze.[1]

After the race, it was announced that Tyler Hamilton, the winner of the men's time trial, had had a positive doping test, but because the backup sample was frozen, further tests could not be done, and the results stayed as they were. In May 2011, Hamilton confessed that he had used doping products, and gave back his gold medal. The other cyclists have as of May 2011 not yet been upgraded.
