Urban-Ultra UTX50

10th March, 2017

This incredible ultra-trail adventure takes you into the wilderness of Ras Al Khaimah in the United Arab Emirates. A fully supported single-stage race will take you through rocky mountain terrain and over the spectacular sand dunes of the UAE. This is a serious challenge and not for the faint-hearted. It is tough and will test you to your very core.

Sand gaiters highly recommended!

Urban-Ultra Kalba Hills Cycle Challenge 2017

17th March, 2017

Start at the picturesque lagoons of Kalba, Sharjah and ride through the surrounding Kalba Hills undulating across the peaceful landscape to finally ascend the Kalba tunnel for a spectacular descent back into the east coast – the elite or social route stretches 70km or the challenge distance of 37km with approx 700m (for the full distance) of elevation along smooth tarmac roads.
The Kalba Hills Cycle Challenge will start at Sharjah Kalba Lagoon (N 25° 1’9.64”  E 56°21’26.15”) promptly at 07:00hrs (Waves for each category 70km elite first off) on Friday 17th March 2017. There is ample parking and rest rooms at the start. It is 1hr 34 mins from Dubai (138km).

Riders are asked to reach the finish no later than 10:00hrs for 70k and 08:30hrs for the 37km. (70k riders must reach end of first loop no later than 08:15hrs).

IMPORTANT NOTE: No UCI licence is required to enter Elite, HOWEVER, please self regulate. If you know that you are not an elite rider and able to keep with that group then enter the social category. There is no benefit, other than being in the way of faster and more experienced riders. Some riders on the Coast to Coast selected a totally inappropriate category that was too fast for them and many riders in the A and B groups were quickly dropped back to G and H and further back, just to start at the front.
The groups on this race will not be so separated, so if you are not elite then do not select elite.
We believe you know if you are elite or not and trust you will choose your category sensibly and accordingly.
The elite category should be used purely for racers, that’s not to say you are not, but just consider if you are an elite racer who races regularly in a race situation, or a keen rider with a competitive spirit. Choose accordingly.

You can now stay at Absolute Adventures Kalba Camp just 10minutes from the start point. Either share a 10 person room for AED 200 a night or book your 2 person cabin for AED375. Breakfast included and a beautiful stay in a wooden mountain chalet. www.adventure.ae Please call them for Reservations
