Some quotes from the riders:

#55# Mohammed Al Balooshi: I joined the first round of this championship but I had an engine problem and I couldn't get point. In this race, I am vey happy to win both races and I will fight for the championship. I would like to thank the organization and QMMF for his hospitality that make me feel as if I am riding at home.

#44# Jassim Nassir: I won the two races in the first round riding in the E1 category but for this round and the future rounds I will participate in the E2 category. My objective is to get the title of the E2 category. Today we had the problem of the water that makes it more risky and can damage the engine of the bike, but the track was nice and different than the previous round. I want to thank my new sponsor SkyDiveDubai for their support.

#22# Abdullah al Shatti: I also joined the first round of Enduro in the E1 category and I will participate in the other rounds. This time the track was different that the first time, it was more tight. For this round there were so many participants that made the start nicer and more challenger for us. I would like to thank the organization for this event.

Mr. Nasser Khalifa Al Atiiya, QMMF President would like to thank Mr.Omar Alfardan for his support for the succeed of this event and to Alfardan Motorcycles that collaborated in the prize ceremony. Alfardan awarded the winners by supplying them riding equipment. From QMMF, a special thank to all the teams, riders, officials, volunteers, marshals, Ministry of Interior, Environmental, Hamad Hospital and all government support for making this event happen and hope to succeed again in the next rounds.
