In the memory of Dante Torres, a loved filipino in the UAE and cycling comunities. UAE mountainbiking has a tradition to run this enduro challenge every year. Its a format which is new to MTB in UAE. Its special stages and shorter faster tracks. Not focused on endurance but the ability to push yourself to the max over a shorter course. It was a technical track and qualifying was mandatory as either been placed in previous races in UAE or on a STRAVA.

Winner in Elite Men was Andy Whitaker, the man behind Hot-cogs, who continually improves and are a front figure on the mtb scenes here in Dubai and UAE. Women class by the strong rider Michelle Guerin. Expert Men won by Bobby Avila. Full results here!

Well done everybody and special thanks to Ken Bico for the great photos. Click on image to get to the album.
