“More water station and a better neutral start than Al Ain Fondo.
Unfortunately, many changes occurs in the last day before the race.”
“It could have been a yet more memorable race if the organization were prompt and organized, causing no confusion to riders. The starting time were changed several times. The results and post- photos came later than usual. Photos taken where not inclusive at all, shots were very biased to teams and elite riders.
Otherwise it was a good event. Not excellent. I will think twice to join next year if it is the same way of organization.”
“Too much climb but manage to 2nd place haha”
“Lovely ride and good organization. Water stations where to close to each other abd all within 40k…. And none post 60k”
“Its a challenging course with enough directional signs and marshals on the crucial points no one will get lost- good organization.
Medal is made of plywood so disappointing the race is hard but the medal is cheap material unlike the previous Liwa races.
No water station beyond 50km considering that it is more important on the latter part of the race.
Its a good experience, anyways.”
“Great race! Well organised! But very tough for someone with rubbish legs like me! ?”
“AWESOME. Loved it as always. Please if you can start 60/90kms with a small gap. Group was very large and dangerous to begin with. Great otherwise. thanks”
“Entered 75km race and got told it was only 60.
Got told would be 2 separate start times and it was 1 mass start with multiple collisions ”
“amazing road even if it was really tough uphills...but I still survive until my legs start cramping...thanks and I hope I can make it better next time...”
“Good experience and even there is ongoing construction along the way but still manage to have a safe race.”
“Theres should be a prize nextime”
“The route was lovely !
Water stations and volunteers were amazing , big kudos
Just the organizer changed route and the start time two times the night before the race. This could have been handled better ”
“Great event and highly recommended.Thanks for organising such a great venue.
It would be better not to start 90km and 60km together. At least bib numbers for each race could be different colours to identify who's racing which distance. There was no water station on the last 30km of the 90km course. ”
“Hello, I would suggest a different colour of numbers for the long and short races or a different numbering. ”
“Amazing event and will do again next year.”
“stunning route, very good route profile, overall well organized, extremely supportive team on the ground and en route”
“Everything is great except for the last 20 or 10 km because no one is giving water at this last 10km”
“The last minute change to the route wasn’t great, but overall well organized great course. Would love more events in liwa”
“All is good and enjoyed it!”
“Well Organized . Just one part of the route where the direction sign was missing. Other than that all good ”
“Too many last-‘minute changes to the course and the start time. The two groups should have been separated by 1 minute.”
“Very well organized despite few last minute changes due to road closures, I guess.”
“Liwa is a stunning area of the UAE
The comms from PremierOnline is very poor.Route changes by emails late the evening prior is very poor. Hotel offers a few days before is poor. The race briefing pack, copied and pasted from previous years, is full of errors and just not good enough for an event thats 200+ km away…people are planning w/ends for these trips, more details need to be added. It could be a lot better. Need a hand let me know, am to help out an add the racers views”
