Season opener amongst great friend in the UAE Mountain Biking Community!
The opening race of the 2019/20 season will be hosted in the mtb backyard of Showka. This race is full of single-track, jeep track, and lots of fun. These trails have been continually developed by volunteering mountain bike enthusiasts over the back decade. It is an opportunity to come and experience what the UAE has to offer and meet the Mountain Biking Community. This race is hosted in partnership with UAE MTB.
Another example of what to expect when you race with us!
This has been one of the most enjoyed races of the series last season. Al Ain is called the Green Emirate but hidden among its rocky outskirts you will find amazing cross-country single track. This is not one to be missed as we have a little surprise in store. Don't miss out and register now!
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.
In season 2 we will provide the option to hire some of the best XC bikes and receive them ready-to-go on the start line.

We will build a race village and tented-village for the night before each XCM. Book a package when you register. Your tent, sleeping bag, mattress and more are supplied.
Get a good night's sleep and be fresh for the start line!
The Half Marathon (XCM 0.5)
A demanding form of middle-distance mountain bike racing, covering between 40 - 50 kms in mountainous terrain.
The races can be run over a single or multi-lap course, again testing endurance and providing a stepping stone to the full marathon distance.
The Quarter Marathon (XCM 0.25)
A less demanding form of short-distance mountain bike racing, covering between 15 - 25 kms in mountainous terrain.
The races are generally over a single lap course, introducing new riders to the sport and allowing juniors to develop the necessary race skills they'll soon need!
On-the spot repair and bike washing.
Bikes can also be left with the mechanics at end of race if a full repair or scheduled service is required, and bike can be dropped off to owner at a pre-agreed date and time.
Feedstations provided at strategically appointed locations, stocked with gels, bars, fruit and liquids and of course plenty of people to assist you.
