Haute Route Oman heralds new partnership with Global Cycling Network

Haute Route Oman have partnered with the Global Cycling Network (GCN) to offer two lucky cyclists the opportunity to win free entry to next year’s event.

The competition, which includes flights, accommodation and bike transportation, will see the winner and a friend go to Oman for the three-day Haute Route experience in March 2019, the first ever to be held in the Middle East.

GCN will document the new Omani event, meaning the global community of cyclists can experience the challenge of the Al Hajar mountain range course, including the Jebel Akhdar ‘Green Mountain’.

Salma Al Hashmi, CMO of host organisers Oman Sail said: “GCN is known throughout the world for its original, interesting and exciting content and we are delighted to welcome them as partners on our Haute Route Oman adventure.

“With their ability to reach an engaged audience across multiple platforms, GCN will spread the word about Haute Route Oman and the country around the globe.”

GCN is ​the world’s leading creator of cycling digital video content distributed on YouTube and Facebook and their video output ranges from behind-the-scenes coverage of professional cycling events to maintenance and ‘how-to’ instructional videos.

Simon Richardson, presenter of GCN, said: ​“Oman is an amazing place to ride a bike, so we’re really excited to be able to showcase it as a destination to our viewers – and to kick things off with a prize giveaway like this is fantastic.”

The Haute Route Oman competition winner will get two free entries to the event, two flights to Muscat from an airport of their choice with free bike box carriage, a twin room at the event hotel from 28th February to 3rd March, welcome packs including a jersey and bib shorts, and transport from Muscat to the hotel.
