Road bicycle racing is a sport in which cyclists race individually or in teams over paved road courses. Races are typically mass start events, in which all participants begin at the same time and race to be cross the finish line in the quickest time, or time trials, in which racers try to complete as many circuits of a course in a specified amount of time. Less common are more intensive "tours," which are multi-stage races that take place over multiple days.
