Doha World’s race bike. Pedal your camel!

Race and stay out of the sun.

Race and stay out of the sun.

Get ready to rumble in the desert. The UCI and metro dollars galore are bringing the World Championship Road Race Championships to Doha in Qatar. Woo-hoo!

While some riders will be using special handlebar-mounted fans and air conditioners to try and beat the blistering 40 Celsius, 103 Fahrenheit temperatures, the UCI will also provide special race bikes to any rider who needs extra protection from the sun.

The camel-themed bikes include a sun parasol mounted int he rear of the bike to keep the sun off the rider. The special camel motif should inspire all the athletes with a Laurence of Arabia look. Now, go get those rainbow jerseys.
