I would take part again
9.0 Great concept, well executed, fun to compete in. Paul Bodien · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“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!”

9.3 Great event. Lawrence Wilson · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Very enjoyable. Next time a water station at half way would be nice, and make the race the entire 50K. ”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 01.09.2015
“For the next one we are offering two distances - 1 hour and the 49.3km loop. If you enter the 1 hour you are by default entered in the 49.3km loop option and vice verca. Thx for feedback.”

8.7 Great event John Johnstone · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“A good personnal challenge”

8.5 Great event - fun had by all! Leon Nel · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“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?”

Comment from Premier Online - 01.09.2015
“Thanks for the comments......we investigated ways to collect data and from our perspective it worked well. Because of the vast array of recording devices uploading to a computer I believe would have been problematic. As it turns out all the data collected has been very accurate. We did have water at the canopy with intermediate timing stop plus there was the mosque for a water stop but next time we will have a water stop sign :-)”

8.4 My first time trial and loads of fun! Christian Decker · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
Edited on 01.09.2015

“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.”

7.7 Excellent event! Khawar Siddique · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes
9.3 Another Great Event by Race ME Rhys Williams · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“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. ”

9.3 Great event Paolo Di Vincenzo · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“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!!”

8.4 Excellent, well organised, well supported! Adrian Knight · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Good communication, clear instructions before and at the event, helpfull volunteers, nearest we get to a proper Time Trial!”

8.9 Great event Swen Maikranz · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“Suggestion for next time. Close AQ until last starter left and then then let public go clockwise as well. ”

Comment from the Event Organizer - 30.08.2015
“AQ is a public track and can quite easily handle small-medium events alongside the public. We managed ALL clockwise traffic from 5:25am to 6:10am through public posts on Facebook and having a marshal in the carpark and at the top of the stick. Public users were asked to ride anti-clockwise.”

9.0 Excellent season opener. Great benchmarking event Christopher Gunn · Participation 1 time I would take part again Yes

“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! :)”
