September 01, 2019 – DUBAI, UAE: This year’s cycling season is off to a thrilling start thanks to ŠKODA and the 10th edition of the Spinneys Dubai 92 Cycle Challenge. The first of three Build-Up Rides saw over 450 cyclists take part in the 45km challenge at Al Qudra Cycle track and we can now look forward to the 65km Cycle Challenge on Friday, 11 October and the 85km Cycle Challenge on Friday, 1 November, both at Al Qudra Cycling Track.
The 10th edition of the Cycle Challenge will culminate in the Main Cycle Challenge, a 100km Cycle Challenge on Friday, 29 November at the Dubai Autodrome and ŠKODA is revving things up until the big day. In addition to a number of activities planned, ŠKODA will also hold a competition for one lucky person to win a car for a year from Ali & Sons, ŠKODA’s distribution partner in the UAE. Throughout the challenge, golden keys will be distributed to riders after the races – in the third build-up ride up to the final. You don’t have to be competing to win a ŠKODA though – there will be an additional golden keys given away during a Dubai 92 radio competition and during store activations. After the final races finishes, all keys will go into a raffle with one golden key being able to open the giveaway car!
To ensure everyone gets in the spirit for the last leg of the challenge, a number of other activities, awareness campaigns and competitions are also planned such as the Accumulator where riders with the best accumulated time from all races will have a chance of winning a prize. The best male, female, junior male and junior female riders will also win a Wahoo Kickr.
The Spinneys Dubai 92 Junior Rides also come back to the Dubai Autodrome on Thursday, 28 November. In partnership with Prime Medical, 6-15 year-olds will have the opportunity to compete in 2.5km, 15km and 30km rides.

Therefore we have decided to run a very special competition awarding its winner with free usage of a SKODA car for one year. Everybody who participates in the Golden keys has the chance to win.
