    On the occasion of the 46th National Day, the UAE is witnessing a national joy in which the institutions and individuals are competing in the expression of their national feelings that have existed since the birthday of the Union on December 2, 1971 to draw the world's paintings of loyalty and belonging attached to the walls of memory in order to preserve history and a prelude to a bright future.

    Al Nuaimi and the members of the team expressed their happiness on this precious occasion, which is a clear memory of the beginning of a dignified life and human civilization in all its details in our beloved country, which gives creative indications about a civilization made by the late founder Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, may God Rest His Soul in Peace, and his sons followed him. Development phases continue until the Year of Giving under the leadership of HH Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE.

    The team will be led by Faisal Al Nuaimi with the participation of 18 cyclists from the UAE, Denmark, Germany, France, South Africa, Britain, Ireland and Netherlands.
