ADNOC presents Pedal with Pogacar, a unique community cycling event hosted in partnership with UAE Team Emirates and TrainYAS.
Open to everyone from elite athletes to budding young cyclists on training wheels. ADNOC is giving the community a chance to race, ride and relax alongside a Tour de France champion and his teammates as part of a one-off event in Abu Dhabi.
The inclusive festival of cycling, which will be held at Yas Marina Circuit, will feature a series of races for age categories, coaching clinics for kids and an open-to-all community ride-along around the track, featuring some of the biggest stars in professional road cycling.
For those cyclists wishing to participate in the 1 Hour Challenge riding and racing with the team, we have created a "The Crit Race". Contested over a 1 hour period, the winner is the first rider overall and by age groups, to cross the line after the bell lap without being "lapped". Riders in The Crit Race can also compete for the Sprint and KOM Title.
The Crit Race will start at 8:30am.
Throughout the morning there will be opportunities for photos and autographs with UAE Team Emirates riders as well as the chance to win cycling prizes that include merchandise, signed jerseys and UAE Team Emirates team kit.
Pedal with Pogacar will run from 8:00am-12pm, Saturday 23rd October at Yas Marina Circuit.
Post The Crit Race, from 10am we will host a free family ride and cycling clinics for the kids.
The free community event, held as part of the TrainYAS series and is open to anyone over the age of six, no pre-registration is required*. All participants will need to show a green Al Hosn pass to enter the venue.
* Entry into The Crit Race requires pre registration and will cost AED55 per rider to register.
