The Trans Hajar Mountain Bike Race is the Middle East’s premier multi-day mountain bike stage race. Participating riders compete over 5 days of challenging racing, crossing every type of terrain that Oman has to offer, from 20% off-road climbs to rewarding single track descents skirting the country’s many canyons and wadis.
Now entering its fifth year, the 2015 race will see an entirely new route centered at the base of highest peak in the Arabian Penninsula, Jebel Shams (Sun Mountain) at 3028m. Competing over 400km and 10,000m+ of ascent this edition promises to be the hardest one yet.
