Abu Dhabi cyclists can saddle up for an unforgettable race against a double Olympic champion.

Swiss cycling sensation Fabian Cancellara, who scooped two Olympic time trial golds and a road race silver as well as four World Time Trial crowns during a stellar career, will be putting Abu Dhabi cyclists through their paces.

The unique two-wheeled challenge at Yas Marina Circuit will see teams of two completing two laps of Yas Marina Circuit’s famous F1 track with the aim of beating the time set by the cycling supremo.

The fastest three teams at the Chasing Cancellara event, plus category winners in qualification, will then advance to a final cycling showdown.

The qualifiers will then set off at the same time as each other, followed by Cancellara a few seconds later.
Whoever crosses the line first is the winner.

Do you think you can hold off Cancellara? Registration is now open, however places are limited and entrants are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible.

You will get plenty of goodies for taking part, including a cycling bib, t-shirt and a finisher certificate if you manage to beat Cancellara.

Surely nobody will beat him… Are you up for a ‘wheel’ big challenge?

Dhs950 (for teams of two). Tue Mar 20 9pm-11pm. Yas Marina Circuit, Yas Island. Register at https://www.yasmarinacircuit.com/en/products/whats-on-track/chasing-cancellara-trainyas/.
