Theme For Velodrome – by The Chemical Brothers:

When approached by Olympic organisers to write the official Olympic cycling theme music The Chemical Brothers they set about creating something that would reflect “the sense of speed, pace and drama,” of the sport as well as the incredible beauty of the new Olympic velodrome’s architecture. “Theme for Velodrome” is a thrilling, world-class track that will provide the soundtrack to six action packed days of competitive Track Cycling over the course of which 10 Olympic gold medals will be won.
