Hatta, Dubai, UAE United Arab Emirates

The HERO Dubai race will take place at Hatta, the Nature Park 110 km east of Dubai. It is an area that allows a glimpse into the genuine culture of the Emirates, the territory of Hatta is striking for the atmosphere that only the desert is able to convey in its true authenticity. It is in this context that Hatta aims to become a reference destination for ecotourism in the Arabic region, and the decision to create a permanent Mountain Bike Trail Centre represents Hatta's desire to position itself on the international off-road bike world.


Temperatures in February range between 20° and 24°C during the day. However, in HATTA, where the race takes place, the climate is cooler due to the mountainous environment in the desert and hinterland.

60 km and 1,600 hm | 30 km and 800 hm

The route features 60 km and 1,600 m elevation gain, and develops on the Mountain Bike Trail Centre’s single trails in Hatta. The route is mostly on dirt road and sand and does not feature specific technical elements. Another shorter route (30 km and 800 m elevation gain) will also be available for anyone wanting to experience what it feels like to bike in the desert. However, only competing in the 60 km race will qualify you to take part in the HWS circuit.
