The Dubai Spinneys 92 Cycle Challenge is already part of the UCI Gran Fondo World Series since 2015 and has always been an event with a lot of different nationalities at the start.
The course starts and finishes in the Dubai Sports City and is a flat and fast course with a loop towards Emirates Hills and Jumeirah Island before returning back over the finish line. The second part is a long straight line over Sheikh Zayed Bin Hamdan Al Nahyan Street towards the Cityland mall where a loop is done before going back to the finish.
Total distance is 92km for 280m of elevation, so a good start of the season to get back in condition.
A total of 2020 riders have signed up representing 91 different nationalities, 1291 of them do the qualifying distance, a new record
