24 hour racing spreads to Dubai

Organizers announced the first-ever 24 hour race in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates in mid-March 2008. The four kilometer course will run through Mamzar Parc with a backdrop of azure seas, a sandy beach and palms. Up to 200 racers can expect a flat and technically undemanding course; some challenges will include sandy passages and stairs into an ampitheatre in the park. Solo riders or teams of two or four are welcome. For more information, visit
