Haute Route

Haute Route Oman

March 01 - March 03 2019
Muscat, Oman, Middle East
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!
