This is the second edition of the 4-day Cross Country Marathon (XCM) Stage Race across the foothills of the Hajar Mountains is an experience like no other.

The rocky desert terrain, desert heat and winter sunshine make this a journey across truly unique scenery and shows the true nature of the United Arab Emirates.

It is an individual race format across jeep tracks, through breathtaking wadis, over punishing climbs and lots of fun single track.

The Arabian Epic Team have invested a lot of time to make this a unique experience and find routes that can challenge every rider. 300km and 5,500m of climbing may not sound like the toughest race but when you take into account the desert heat and unforging terrain, it proves an epic challenge.

Our Race Villages are located in World Class Hotels so after a tough day in the saddle, you will arrive back to 5* facilities and hospitality. Enjoy a recovery swim, refreshments and camaraderie by the pool.

We guarantee it is a journey of self discovery and promise that you will be leaving the UAE with lifelong friends, memories and a great experience mountain biking in the Middle East.
