Speed skating races are mainly practiced on one of the “road”rings. Several racing formats exist:
- In line racing, the first skater to cross the finish line therefore wins this event. It is the most common practice in this sport.
- The elimination race: at each lap, a skater is eliminated. During the first and the last laps there is no elimination. The end of the event is like an online race.
- The points race, during each all track, points are awarded to the first three skaters to cross the line. The winner is the one who has accumulated the most points.
- The American relay race, which is therefore a team race of 3-4 skaters. Relays are carried out by pushing his teammate in order to give him a starting impulse.
- Finally, the time trial race. It is an event which takes place over a fixed distance (100, 200 or 300m) in the shortest possible time, it can be akin to a sprint.
