Winner Yousuf Mirza took home the hot and humid NAS ramdan cycle race that took place late on friday 26 july 2013. Riders pushed hard on the track that was made up on parts of the road behind Meydan horse race arena. There was a huge interest among the local riders as well as expats which had its own class. A fair amount on women showed and even local women proved they are to count with in the future races.
Total prize money was 950000AED which was an obvious reason to give it all you had. The race was watched by Shaikh Hamdan Bin Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum and he showed a great interest and passion for the sport. A great feeling to have that level of interest in one of the fastest growing sports in UAE.
Winner in UAE cyclists class was Yousef Mirza, UAE amateurs winner Khalid Saif, UAE residents winner Michael Sagman and Women class won by Victoria Novwall.
