Coming in first place on 20th October for the men was Rashed Mohamed Ghulam and Cedric Domont who both crossed the finish line with a time of 01:34:22 and Mansoor Ali Thani came in third in 01:34:22.

Spinneys, the locally-owned supermarket chain was once again a great hit in the busy Cycle Village with their delicious omellets and freshly baked croissants for everyone to enjoy after a long ride on the track. Alongside Spinneys, a number of other sponsors ensured that all cyclists, friends and family had a fantastic morning, including UPANDRUNNING with their much-needed sports massages.

The fourth and final Build-Up ride is taking place on 24th November covering 85km taking place at Al Qudra Cycling Track. ■
