“Great cycling night! - Better lighting needed at start/finish location. T-shirt giveaway was not well organized - some got, some didn't, some didn't even know. Need for safety briefing especially for those new to group rides. Should allow time for team members to discuss riding positions and taking turns at the front. Overall though, was a great night with no incidents to report. ”
“Excellent event, well run, will do it again - Keep it up”
“Very good - Excellent really enjoyed it, I would prefer to enter the whole series in one hit.”
“Good event, safety instructions needed - Safety regulations for the racers were not there. I would have liked to see instructions to all about having or not having lights, music and safety distances maintained. Participants were all over the place.
Aero arms were not allowed, but several riders had them there as well.”
“A great night out - Excellent effort from all involved; well done!
Only issue was grumble bum telling me to go to the shop for water :)
p.s. can you please arrange for some more tail wind next time!”
“First race overall good experince - 8km track was open and wish been closed
as frist time racer with average speed 30kmh, would be nice to have other race only for newbies ”
“Fantastic! - Great event, unique to this area. Fantastic opportunity to practise skills needed in group riding and drafting. Rode in group of people who were different genders, ages and nationalities that I had never met before but we rode as a team and helped each other around the course. Really pleased to have a mid week, evening event to participate in too, avoiding clashes with the numerous weekend events. Really enjoyed the opportunity to take part in a cycle event-there are so few in AD. Loved it!”
“Overall very good event. - A bit expensive no event giveaways, could of provided at least water and a gel or something at the end.”
“Excellent race, well organised. - Great event, well organised with good communication prior to the event. Perfect race for novices upwards- staggered start times make for a really interesting and enjoyable race.
Hope to see plenty more races in Abu Dhabi based on the popularity of this evenings race- well done to the organisers!”
“The race was awful and unorganized it was a mess! - We were told that everybody will start together, and when we arrived they split us into groups based on what they think my level is at.
They started the timing right after the first group left, my group started 11+ minutes after the first group and they included the waiting time in the overall results.
the results were unfair, because if you started first you've got time advantage. et
it wasn't worth it racing at all, taking in consideration I flew from Kuwait to race. ”
