Sheikh Hamdan wrote on Twitter, “Today, I was pleased with the participation of a group of leaders of major international companies operating in Dubai on a bicycle tour as part of the Dubai Fitness Challenge at the Nad Al Sheba track.

“We talked about the future of development and ways to overcome the current challenges in the framework of a partnership that has for long brought Dubai together with the private sector and was the cause of successes that dazzled the world.”

But we also discussed the importance of sport, which Dubai has made part of its way of life... and the need to encourage its practice due to its direct link with the human capacity for work, production and progress… We are keen to have a healthy, productive and happy society.”

It is one of the biggest fitness events with a participation of heath enthusiasts from all spheres of society.
