The Abu Dhabi Tour Challenge 1 offers 2 race distances with the race starting at Wadi Adventure and taking riders on a relatively flat looped course before the climb to the top of Jebel Hafeet.
Jabal Ḥafeet (Arabic: جبل حفيت, translit. Jabal Ḥafit) (variously transcribed Jabal, Jabel or Jebal and Hafit or Hafeet – literally “empty mountain”) is a mountain located primarily in the environs of Al Ain, which itself is in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi in the UAE. Part of the mountain straddles the border with Oman, while the summit is located wholly within United Arab Emirates.
This race is valid for the ABU DHABI TOUR CHALLENGE CHAMPIONSHIP only for the riders that do the long distance.
