Berg and Bush

3 day stage race.

Berg and Bush

Some of the worlds best mountain biking. Starting at the Em’seni Camp on the banks of the Tugela River, the race winds down some seriously riveting single track to Winterton. Awarded best race in South Africa in 2009, we’ve been getting better and better with each year.

Descent

The 3 Day Descent is our Main Event for all those Competitive Riders/Racing snakes. The best “PROPER MOUNTAIN BIKING” by far with awesome single track and “Lekker” Prize Money.

Weather conditions

Usually warm to hot days and cool nights, mostly dry, but rain should be planned for.
