Berg and Bush


Berg and Bush

3-day stage race. Berg and Bush. 

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

About the Descent

Three days of whizz, bang and wow! The Descent is where dust flies and mountain bikers push themselves to the limit of fun. Featuring the one-of-a-kind descent off the escarpment and into the bushveld, the Descent is where the men and women of mountain biking who like to ride hard can test themselves against the best.

There is also a 2 Day event option

Our original and beloved Berg & Bush event, the 2-Day is popular amongst family, groups and all riders looking for fun in the saddle. Both days start and finish at the Em’seni race village, with riders enjoying maximum fun and excitement on the trails. Riders from ages 15 and above are welcome to enter.
