The Arabian Epic Series is open to professional and amateur mountain bikers. No qualification is required.
Participants must be at least 18 years old and have the necessary fitness level to participate in their chosen discipline (either XCM 1.0 or XCM 0.5).
It is every rider's responsibility to ensure that they arrive at the race start with the necessary fitness level to participate.
You are required to have a full medical checkup by your doctor before taking part. This includes supplying race organisers with the rider's medical history for the race doctors. This is essential for the planning and delivery of medical care at the event. Each rider must also sign a personal indemnity form before they are able to compete.
Most riders begin planning for marathon races like these months in advance. It is impossible to over-prepare.
Although a lot of planning goes into the physical training, nutrition strategy and preparation of your bike, mental preparation is just as important. Willpower is just as likely to get you through a tough stage as the latest and greatest carbon mountain bike. We suggest finding a veteran of mountain bike stage racing or previous finisher to help guide your preparation.
In summary, should one rider win all 5 races, then that rider will receive a discount of USD 1,000 from any one of the stage races chosen, or the discount can be spread across multiple races.
