We present the Al Hudayriyat Time Trial Challenge on Sunday morning 18th September at Hudayriyat Island to be raced over 13.6Kms for riders 15years+ and 6.8km for juniors 8 to 14 years.
ITTs are also referred to as "the race of truth", as winning depends only on each rider's strength and endurance, and not on help provided by teammates and others riding ahead and creating a slipstream.
Starting times are at equal intervals, usually set between 30 seconds and 1 minute.
The starting sequence is usually based on the finishing times in preceding races with the highest ranked cyclist starting last.
Competitors are not permitted to draft (ride in the slipstream) behind each other. Any help between riders is forbidden.
The rider with the fastest time is declared the winner.
Event check-in from 5:30am. We have set the following suggested starting windows for each group. Riders can start earlier or later but once you pass the start line your time starts.
