Spinneys Dubai 92 cycle challenge is back!

Time to get back in the saddle! Dubai’s legendary two-wheeled challenge returns on March 26, 2021

It’s the news that cycling enthusiasts all over the region have been waiting for –  the Spinneys Dubai 92 Cycle Challenge is officially back on the road.

With the main 92km adult race confirmed to be taking place on March 26, 2021, and a junior race scheduled for the day before, eager cyclists desperate to get back in the saddle can start their training now, with the second in a series of four Build-Up rides taking place at Dubai’s purpose-built Al Qudra Cycle Track this Friday, December 18.

“It’s great to confirm the dates of the Spinneys Dubai 92 Cycle Challenge and allow the region’s thriving cycling community to start preparing in earnest,” explained Race Director, Stewart Howison.

“Conditions in Dubai in March are usually ideal for cycling, and we can’t wait to see more and more riders involved in the sport by joining our Build-Up rides and getting in perfect shape to complete the challenge through the iconic streets of Dubai.”

Held in partnership with Spinneys, Dubai 92 and Dubai Sports Council, the challenge is one of the Middle East’s premium sporting races. Regularly attracting thousands of riders from all over the world, 2019 saw the race celebrate its 10th anniversary with 1,500 cyclists taking part in three Build-Up rides and 2,500 competing in the final race.

With 2020’s event one of the many sporting highlights cancelled because of the Covid-19 pandemic, excitement is greater than ever for the 2021 race. And with organisers introducing extra precautions at Build-Up rides and the main event in March to ensure total public safety, participants are on the edge of their seats – we mean saddles – to get involved in the next installment of the UAE’s infamous road race.
