Temperatures in October are between 24° - 32°C. However, in HATTA, where the race takes place, the climate is cooler due to the mountainous environment in the desert and hinterland.
The one and only UCI mountain bike race in the middle east
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 HS circuit.
To befriend the HERO routes and acquire an insight into their secrets, we invite you to join us in Hatta on 15 October 2021. Our Mountain Bike Guides will trial the race routes with you. Dedicated especially for cyclists of the HERO 60 KM.
