XCM3: THE FINAL (Hatta)

This relates to RACE 3 of the UAE XCM Race Series 2019/20, with the start and finish line in the renowned JA Hatta Fort Hotel.
There are 2 categories of cross country marathon (XCM) in this race (based on a distance + difficulty balance).
This is a demanding form of long-distance mountain bike racing, covering long distances in mountainous terrain. This is a test of endurance, but more importantly - it is an awesome day on the bike exploring areas you would not normally ride.

The Quarter Marathon (XCM 0.25)
