The recent Dubai Ride provided a special moment for cycling in the UAE, as Sheikh Zayed Road was closed down for several hours to host those on two wheels. With more than 20,000 participants, it was the latest example of a sport that is booming in the country.  Omar Nour knows that better than most.

And this, in turn, causes many problems, both at work and at home. As British comic and writer Robert Webb put it, “The Rules for Being a Man go something like this: Don’t cry. Love sport.
