Sheikh Hamdan trys out new 50km mountain bike trail in Dubai

Sheikh Hamdan was one of the first people in Dubai to try the new 50km mountain bike trail at Mushrif National Park.

The 50km trail can host up to 3,000 cyclists a day. And features enough climbs, drops and terrain amongst the forest for even professional cyclists.

And Sheikh Hamdan, the Crown Prince of Dubai, took to the course this weekend to test it out.

The track starts and ends near the main gate of the car park. And there are three quick-return lanes and three rest stops if you don’t want to tackle it all in one go.

There are also several bike rental and repair shops on the route.

The track opens to the public from tomorrow, Tuesday, October 19.

The park is home to 70,000 trees, several playgrounds, a train ride and also has a tree-top adventure course called Aventura with 80 challenges.

Exciting tennis competition Tie Break Tens makes Dubai debut

Staying in the sports world, the exciting short-form tennis game Tie Break Tens is making its Dubai debut at the Coca-Cola Arena later this year.

Tie Break Tens is an all-action form of tennis with no sets, no weird counting and one simple rule – the first to 10 points is the winner.

The tournament launched in 2015 and has become a big draw across the world. And it’s now making its Dubai debut featuring some of the world’s leading players.

10-time ATP winner Gaël Monfils is the biggest name on the card alongside British number one Dan Evans. And the winner of the 8-player tournament will walk away with AED 500,000. Nice work if you can get it!

Tickets start from AED150 and are available from here.
