I would take part again
9.3 Great event · Participation 3 times I would take part again Yes

“More event to come”

8.3 Well Organised social event William G Forsythe · Participation 1 time I would take part again Maybe

“Another good event well organised - a lot of time planning preparing and delivering a smooth mornings event. However am getting tired n fed up entering events/races where I dont stand a chance in hell of even getting close to winning thanks to the wide age gap catagories.. so frustrating and disappointing.”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 08.11.2016
“Hi William, appreciate your comments and we are looking at how best we address the imbalance. We reviewed results constantly and want to keep evolving. Hang in there ”

10.0 Great...more of this Bart Van Den Dries · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
9.5 Well done and many thanks to the volunteers Gary Toland · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“One of my colleagues got lapped and had to retire on the race even though he was on target to finish on time. I think some of the faster riders should be in the elite race. Other than that a well organized, thoroughly enjoyable event.”

8.8 Great event thanks Russell Faulkner · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes
6.8 Appeals only to a narrow x-section of cyclists · Participation 1 time I would take part again No

“Travelled from Dubai for an enjoyable 50k - will not so do again unless things change. Difficulty finding place to park near enough toilet after 1:45hrs in the car. The whole DNF timing thing and getting lapped and the honest truth I was not quick enough for the young racers..... I would have better doing my normal 85k at Al Qudra. ”

8.3 Good Seamus McEnhill · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

8.0 Fun - Enjoy lots of it. Well organized. Alfredo Merene · Participation 3 times I would take part again Yes

“The race course is fantastic - even there is a bottle neck on turns (after bridge) - but manageable. Not much giveaways - A souvenir t-shirt will be a good item - to commemorate that I participate in this good, exciting and fun race. Thanks to event organizers.. cheers. ”

“Hi Alfredo, I think it is great value at Dhs 50 per entry ”

10.0 Very well organized , Thank you GMS. Faisal Saifullah · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“I will participate next time also and will convince my family friends to join. Excellent event . ”

10.0 Great race, well organised and safe, well done Duncan Anderson · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes
7.3 Good - discriminates against average riders. Timothy Mitchell · Participation 2 times I would take part again Maybe

“Open event. Last year I finished the full course - I probably came 65% down the field. This year I would have finished just within the hour cut-off. I was lapped and prevented from completing the last lap. This was in the rules. The strength of the entry to the Open event must have increased significantly. My beef is that I along with 19 others was recorded DNF with no time. Solution - distinguish 6 and 5 lap finishers with a time. Without change there is no point in my entering next year.”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 05.11.2016
“Hi Timothy, As discussed with a number of riders the program is evolving and we will attempt to address the imbalance around the level of riders that took part in the open category on Friday. For the DNF we are looking at how we can address this and give times for the 5 laps. Not dissimilar to F1 scenario although we are not comparing anyone to a car. Hope fully you enjoyed the increased safety measures in place, the value for money and the opportunity to race ...cheers ”

8.3 A good race and very well organised event Andrew McCombe · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
9.5 Very good event. Highly enjoyable Mark Roberts · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

8.8 Great newbie challenge Arnold Dagdagan · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Happy to be part of this race. As a newbie the experience is fantastic. Good job to the organizers, especially the marshals who made sure the race was safe for all riders.”

9.8 Amazing event! Kudos to the organisers Sherif El Said · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Suggest to put signs 100m or so before the sharp turns. ”

8.3 A well organised, multi race event Sue Giles · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“All in all. A good morning of racing. I haven't seen where the times are posted yet. I know they have been as I saw someone else had posted theirs. Disappointed that the masters men got prizes and medals where as the masters ladies only got a rather condescending pat on the back as recognition.”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 05.11.2016
“Sue, Thanks for your feedback. The only reason there was no trophy as such as that for some reason people register very late which didn't give us time to produce the otherwise stunning trophies we gave out. Sorry if you believe the real life technology glitch came across as only a pat on the back.....”

8.0 Good Fun · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
9.5 Fast & Furious Anthony Whiteley · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“A great race. Really enjoyed. Can't wait for the next event.”

7.8 Not for casuals · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Was expecting a "community" event to be a bit more casual. This turned out to be a full-on cycle race with the "slow" peloton running at 35 kph+. Still good fun all the same.”

9.5 Top class Willem Verhaert · Participation 2 times I would take part again Yes

“I loved the event. just 3 or 4 laps more for the elite would make for me the event even more fantastic. congrats to Gulf multi sport and premier timing and big thanks to Ab u dhabi Sports council and Abu Dhabi police!! ”

7.8 First time to ride an event like this. Gary Backhouse · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“I really enjoyed the event the first time i have taken part in anything like this, my only comment is, i only completed 5 laps as the faster riders had already finished which i feel was a little unfair and when i looked at my time it was DNF which i would of completed if not told its finished. It was a community ride for fun and the slower people were not given the time to finish what they set out to do. I did enjoy the experience and yes would do it again and try n be faster! Thank you”

“Gary, we have taken on your comments....... cheers ”
