Y qué es la pista americana y porqué se llama así, en:
Madison:
Named for the famed Madison Square Garden in New York City, and known as the 'American' race in Europe, this most prestigious of track events is a race for teams of two or three riders, and can last anywhere from six hours to six days!! All riders start at the same time, and the winner is the team covering the most laps in the time allotted. Each team has only one rider in the race at any given time. After covering one or two laps at top speed, that rider drops out of the race so that another member of the team can come in and ride for a while. During the changeovers, the rider coming off the track literally throws the second rider into the race- either with a handsling, or by grabbing onto a special handle sewn into the rear pocket of their teammate's racing shorts. The Madison is considered to be the ultimate event in bicycle track racing, not only because of the length of the race, but also because of its incredible combined demands of speed, endurance, teamwork and tactics

Madison (Men)
This popular event is the Queen of Track Races. It derives its title from the Madison Square Gardens in the USA and consists of a team of two riders, one racing in the bunch, the other resting. Each team has only one rider in the race at any given time. After covering one or two laps at top speed, that rider drops out of the race so that another member of the team can come in and ride for a while. During the changeovers, the rider coming off the track literally throws the second rider into the race with a handsling. Relays take place throughout the race and this is where the race can be won and lost. A bad or ineffective hand sling can cause a team to loose several places. Technically the event is similar to the Points Race as the objective is to gain laps on the other teams and win points in the sprints, which occur every twenty laps
