Street cycling is the most popular and the most watched competition for this sport. The rules of the game are simple. Cyclers leave at the same time and have the purpose to pass the finish line first.
The competitions are usually divided in: stage races and timing races.

In stage races, the time accumulated in every leg is summed up. The winner will be the cycler who, at the end of all the legs, will have obtained the least time. All cyclers are ordered to finish all the legs under the sanction of being disqualified. Timing races are dry races, based on speed on a predetermined route.

The great tours (Tour de France, Tour of Italy and Vuelta) are carried out, generally, in 20-22 legs and draw most of the fans. World street cycling championships take place every year at the end of September.
