AL WATHBA CYCLE RACE SERIES – FINAL RACE

MONDAY, DECEMBER 5

The Al-Wathba Cycling Series offers casual and hardcore riders the prospect of testing their mettle at one of the UAE’s cycling hotspots.

The four-race series strictly adheres to the rules of Australian Pursuit cycling, where individuals are put into groups. Each group is released 20 seconds after the other, with the objective being to close the gap between groups.

Once all four races come to a close, the participant with the best accumulated tally will earn prizes, including a more-than-befitting cash pool for their tiring endeavours.

TOUGH MUDDER – DAY 1 & TOUGH MUDDER – FINAL DAY

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 9 – SATURDAY, DECEMBER 10

Tough Mudder isn’t your run-of-the-mill endurance obstacle competition. Created by a British Harvard post-graduate and former corporate lawyer in 2010, the series provides a distinct opportunity for contestants keen on testing their limits in two categories.

Although highly prized, fitness and willpower are simply not enough to complete the course’s entirety due to the event’s underlying ethos – teamwork. Contestants must finish the challenge that lies ahead by putting their fellow teammates first – all whilst maintaining their cool and not falling victim to obstacles that include water, fire, electricity and heights.

PORSCHE GT3 CUP CHALLENGE MIDDLE EAST – ROUND 2 – DAY 1 & FINAL DAY

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 9 – SATURDAY, DECEMBER 10

The Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge returns to the Middle East for an eighth time, showcasing the region’s top motorsport talent. The multi-round event begins at the Bahrain International Circuit before temporarily shifting eastwards to the UAE, where drivers will grace the Dubai Autodrome and Yas Marina Circuit tracks.

The format is considered to be the most pure form of racing since competing drivers are restricted to the same model – Porsche 911 GT3. This race is perhaps the ultimate opportunity for prospective motor racers to propel themselves onto the grand stage and taste the professional motorsport environment.
