“Great concept, well executed, fun to compete in. - Goody bag was over-generous, great t-shirt! Entry and competing was simple and effective. I wonder why nobody had done this before as it is an ideal use of the Al Qudra loop. The outcome was interesting, can't wait for the next of these challenges to see how I can do it better. Overall, big thanks!”
“Great event and great idea. - Well done guys. Fun little ride ¡¡¿?¿¿”
“Great event. - Very enjoyable. Next time a water station at half way would be nice, and make the race the entire 50K.
“Great event - A good personnal challenge”
“Great event - fun had by all! - Good time was had by all! Friendly bunch of riders, with everybody smiling at the end.
Nitpicks - Need to find a better way to upload and share the GPS files. How about having a computer there, and copy the FIT file over at the finish line?
Water at the 25km mark? For those that want to grab and ride, or stop?”
“My first time trial and loads of fun! - A 1-hour time trial sounded like a funny thing to do and I was not disappointed by the race! While I find it a little on the expensive side, I will certainly try to beat my distance next time. Organisation was outstanding, race course was clear and people were helpful. I think you can't do much about the road works... I'd appreciate a more systematic communication of the race results next time.”
“Another Great Event by Race ME - Well planned event with a decent goodie bag. Track was good and not too hot. Will be back to beat my own distance at the next event. Thanks to Andy and the team at Race ME. ”
“Great event - Really great event and very nice goodie bag (and look forward to the named+time trophy too!). Would be good have at least three of these throughout the season.
Also, but very minimal point, it would be great to have some sort of consolidated timing post-event posted on FB or as a spreadsheet on email: while I know this isn't supposed to be'a race' I would love to see how the rest of the pack did, and how one stacks up. PS. congrats to those rockets out there yesterday - some crazy fast times!!”
“Good to benchmark for improvement - It all went very well, from hearing about it, through to registration and all very good on the day, well organised and will do it again !
A very nice bunch of people running the event.”
“Excellent, well organised, well supported! - Good communication, clear instructions before and at the event, helpfull volunteers, nearest we get to a proper Time Trial!”
“Great event - Suggestion for next time. Close AQ until last starter left and then then let public go clockwise as well. ”
“Excellent season opener. Great benchmarking event - Another well organised Race ME event.”
“Awesome event & super recommended! - It was a GREAT event, very well organized & with awesome volunteers. My first 1hr TT and hopefully one of more to come. Can't wait for next one!”
“Nothing better than a race to test your 1hr limit - Excellent way to push just that little harder :)”
“Great inaugural event.Thank you, fantastic morning - Thoroughly enjoyed it, unique event testing one's limits, and very well seeded to push you hard.Thanks a lot, will definitely do that again.”
“Great event and perfect organisation! - Great event! Many thanks to Andy and everyone else involved for a perfect organisation. Communication was very clear, all arrangements were spotless, organisers were super helpful and the riders were fast! I really hope this becomes a regular and more frequent event. Collecting all the results fed by the riders might be challenging but I trust the team will do its best. And thanks in advance for the crystal trophy! Careful Andy you are raising the bar for all other events now! :)”
