The perfect opportunity for a winter getaway for some warm riding!

1st to 3rd March 2019

Globally renowned for its crystal clear waters, deep canyons and incredible desert, the Sultanate of Oman is also home to the the magnificent Al Hajar mountain range.

With the Tour of Oman now a staple in the racing calendar of most World Tour teams, the region’s stunning scenery, immaculate roads and developed infrastructure for tourism make it the perfect choice for Haute Route’s first Middle Eastern event.

The route will highlight Oman’s natural beauty, and the Haute Route Oman event will take riders approximately 370kms with 6,500+ metres of vertical gain on a course that will test stamina and skill with long, high-altitude mountain climbs and sweeping descents. Full course information will be announced in the coming months, but the event will include two classic mass start stages and an individual time trial.

The centrepiece of the Haute Route Oman experience will be the magnificent Al Hajar mountain range and the iconic Jebel Akhdar (the Green Mountain), one of the country’s most spectacular locations. The Hajar mountains offer severe and scenic climbs which are every bit the equal of anything in the Alps, Pyrenees, Rockies or Dolomites. Conditions in March will offer ideal mid to low 20°C temperatures.

Set to take place from 1-3 March 2019, the inaugural Haute Route Oman is the perfect opportunity to get away for some warm winter riding!

Travel to Oman

Once you’ve completed the Haute Route Oman you’ll want to go the extra mile and explore the Sultanate’s hidden treasures! Grand forts, exquisite palaces, mystical souqs, undulating dunes, fresh water wadis, breathtaking mountainous regions, miles upon miles of sandy beaches. There’s more than enough attractions for you to visit whilst in Oman.

Oman has a well-deserved reputation for the warmth of its welcome, the hospitality of its people and the authenticity of its culture. Described as a beacon of tranquillity, Oman and its capital Muscat have been named as ‘must-see’ destinations by both National Geographic and Lonely Planet. With daily direct flights from most European capitals (6-7 hours), Muscat is very well connected.
