Men's Winner Timo Cooper commented: "Day one started off with a bit of disappointment when I lost a lot of time against my rivals, but from day two, I decided to make up all the time I could, especially in the third day."He added: "We can't ask for more here. Oman has got it all. This is my first time here. It was really amazing. The scenery is mind-blowing and I keep telling people back home about the capturing terrain here."
Women's Winner Hannele Steyn said: "Not one day was easy, not even the last day. I think it is an incredible event and it is beautiful to stay here. We have met a lot of people; everything was catered for. This event has got it all whether you're a technical rider or a climber. You will always remember a race from how tough and challenging it was."
British motorcycle racing TV personality Guy Martin, star of the recent UK documentary series Speed, finished the Trans Hajar race in 11th place in 13:59:33."I've done 24-hour solo races for years. I thought, looking in from the outside, the race was going to be easy," explained Martin. "The days are not so long but it was faster than I like. Sprint racing is not my thing. It was an eye-opener. I didn't account for the heat, coming from an English winter," Martin admitted.
