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

In total , 464 cyclists participated: these consisted of 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 was Bradley Wiggins, who won three medals: one gold, one silver and one bronze.[1]

After the Men's Road Time Trial, it was announced that Tyler Hamilton, the winner of the men's time trial, had received a positive doping test, but because the backup sample was frozen, further tests could not be done, and the results stayed as they were. On August 10, 2012 Hamilton was stripped of his gold medal which was awarded to Russian rider Viatcheslav Ekimov. American Bobby Julich was elevated from bronze to silver, and Michael Rogers of Australia rose from fourth place to receive a bronze medal.[2]
