The goal of the event is to complete three laps around the track before the opponent. This event keeps track of stamina, but it can be recovered by picking up "Stamina Power-ups" which look like hearts inside blue circles of light. They refill half of the Player's stamina. The winner of the first match moves on to the championship match.
Wario's sixth and final mission in the DS version of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games is cycling. To win, he must cross the finish line before his opponent crosses it. His opponent, Knuckles the Echidna, is at top condition, moving at high speed and is very skillful.
This character's third event in the DS version is cycling. To win it, Shadow the Hedgehog must simply cross the finish line, but he must get all the stamina in just two laps. If Shadow misses even one stamina, he loses the event and has to restart. If Shadow gets all the stamina and completes the race, he wins the mission.
Dr. Eggman's final mission (his sixth) in the DS version is also cycling. Just like Wario, he must cross the finish line before his opponent crosses it to win. Also once again, his opponent, Waluigi, is at top condition, going super-fast and getting almost all the stamina there is to get, making is difficult for Dr. Eggman to win.
