Default Sport (cycling) in Dubai/UAE

I'm possibly moving out to Dubai and wondered if anyone knew what cycling sports clubs or facilities are available?

When I say cycling I mean racing on the road, time trials and velodrome, track type competitions, not leisure and touring stuff!

Any help appreciated.

I don't think there is anything as organised as velodromes etc, but I do know that there is a strong local interest in road racing. Most of the expats tend towards mountain biking, of which there are great opportunities and groups, but not much else. There are a couple of bike shops there which offer real hi-tec frames, components etc so they will be a good place to start your search. Often on the weekends you see groups of 15 or so bikes heading out on the long, undulating roads to Fujairah etc. Hot in the summer though!
