Teams of 2 riders competes 30km (20 km for Women) in 2018/19 Tissot UCI Track Cycling World Cup Hong Kong. While one team member races, the other slows down and circle the top of the track to take a rest. The rider must touch (with a hand sling) his/her teammate to change over and propel him/her into the race. Teams score points at the intermediate sprints held every 10 laps. The points scale is the same as that of Point Race, with 5,3,2 and 1 point(s) being awarded to the first four riders to cross the line in each sprint. Points awarded in the last sprint after the full distance are doubled. Riders win or lose 20 points by gaining or losing a lap on the main bunch. The team with the most points accumulated at the finish wins.
