The world’s top cyclists are coming to Abu Dhabi from October 20 to 23 to compete in the Abu Dhabi Tour and as part of the event, Yas Marina Circuit bosses want people to get on their bikes.

The Formula One circuit is holding the Abu Dhabi Tour Challenge, where amateur cyclists from across the UAE will be tasked with going head to head against the clock to complete a lap of Yas Marina Circuit in the fastest possible time.

Cyclists who record the fastest times and finish in first, second or third places in each category will not only get the chance to stand on the Abu Dhabi Tour podium, but will also win trophies and have the chance to claim exclusive Abu Dhabi Tour prizes, including a money-can’t-buy VIP Abu Dhabi Tour experience, cycling jerseys, prize vouchers and much more.

The first riders took to Yas Marina Circuit on Sunday evening and will have two further chances to clock their fastest time between 9.30pm and 10pm on October 11 and 18 as part of StartYas and TrainYas sponsored by Daman’s ActiveLife.

During the 30-minute sessions, riders can cycle as many laps as they can to try and achieve their fastest time.

You can also watch the professional cyclists in the final stage of the Abu Dhabi Tour at Yas Marina Circuit on Sunday, October 23 from 5pm.
