“LOVED IT - THANK YOU - AS ALWAYS ... WELL PLANNED AND SUPPORTED. THANK YOU FOR THE EFFORT YOU ALWAYS PUT INTO MAKING IT A GREAT RIDE FOR US.”
“No comments - I prefer not to say that it in public ”
“Really good event - If you aren't getting as much feedback as you want - the email reminder is a bit confusing. When you "click the logo above" it goes to premier online (the first logo you see is the "rate online at premier online" one which is the most obvious ) - I wanted to give feedback so after clicking around inside premier online I tried other things until I figured out I had to click the kalba logo at the top of the page - maybe other people didn't figure it out. Really good event, well done”
“Good event - Great route on the hills around Kalba.
Route was well marshaled and signed.
Two minor areas that could be improved:
1. Consider the start time of the event if possible as its an early start if driving from Dubai, late morning temperatures in March are very bearable, and the race route roads were quiet.
2. Don't think there was a need to collect race packs at Adventure HQ as could have been done at race sign-on.
Overall a good event!”
“Cycle race at Kalba Hills - Nice route, but very expensive for the level of organization and services we received. ”
“Good ride; sparse on formality. Expensive. - Anti-climatic awards; no podium, simply handing award to recipient at finish line.”
“Great event - Many thanks ”
“Good enough - Will be posted any album with the photos? Where?
“Nice route, poor organisation - Nice route with great descent.
Spoilt by lack of in route water.
where are the timings more than 24 hours after the event?
Didn't need to be there so early to get the timing chip as attendance was low.
Start was late.
Where are the pictures?”
“The most expensive t-shirt .. - Now - more than 24 hours after completion of the event - the results are still not available. Not OK.
I really do not need any more sponsor t-shirts that I will never wear - and as far as finishers medals are concerned, isn't that a thing of the past? Or for kids events?
Both the t-shirt and the medal appear to be unnecessary and unsustainable - would rather have donated to charity.
Other than that, nice route around Kalba and the decent after the tunnel was awesome.
“Route and race were great, organisation very poor - AED 250 was ridiculously expensive for a poorly organized event that :
i) didn't run to time-
ii) didn't offer re-fuelling on the move
iii) didn't have road closures
iv) couldn't even get the finishing arch the right way round at the end
v) only one re-fuelling location in a poorly chosen location
vi) a "goody bag" that consisted of a bottle of water and a tee shirt
The one good thing was that the finishers medal doubles up as a bottle opener !!”
