UAE Road Cycling Championship, sanctioned by the UAE Cycling Federation, has been created in partnership with Onside Sports, as the Championship Manager and Marketing Agency, to provide all competent amateur cyclists with the opportunity to compete in professionally managed events, and be recognised for their achievements.
Categories for the 2018/2019 Championship are Open Emirati Male, Social Emirati Male, Open Expatriate Male and Open Expatriate Female. Each stage will see a stage-winner, as well as stage age division-winners recognised. The Championship leaders are decided via a point system, using the British Cycling Points System (NAT A Road Category – https://bit.ly/2P4irW5).
It was brought to the attention of the Federation that the winner of Stage One’s Open Expatriate Male is a professional cyclist. After discussions with the cyclist, and in true sportsperson style, it was mutually agreed he would step aside in keeping the spirit of the Championship. As such, the Open Expatriate Male Stage One leaderboard has been confirmed as;
First Place – Sam Stollery
Second Place – David Williams
Third Place – Simon Henley
Henley also is the winner of Stage One’s 31 – 40 year Male Age Group.
