KOM BERLIN 27 AUGUST 2022

CLIMB!

KOM BERLIN is a climbing and everesting event for Gravel, MTB and CX bikes held on a 3,3km, mostly-uphill, gravel circuit. Each lap nets 96m altitude, and whether you’re fast or slow – it’s still a nice climb!  There are three race formats to choose from, read below for more!

This gravel climbing spectacle takes place on the Arkenberge which, at 121.9 meters, is the highest point in Berlin.

CAMP!

Camping is allowed, but during an Everesting attempt, you’re not allowed to sleep. Get ready again for a DJ, live electronic music, beer and good times while we cheer on the ultra riders.

Last year, one rider was 7 laps away from a full everesting, and three riders rode over 200km. Will anyone be able to break the mountain this year?

Ultra Distance meets KOM with ULTRA KOM. On Saturday, starting at 4am, solo riders and pairs can attempt to ride the height of Mt Everest (8848m) All riders who complete at least 4424m will enter the everesting.com Hall of Fame! 

Camping before and after is allowed, but to qualify for the Hall of Fame, you are not allowed to sleep during your attempt.

By Team Everesting, teams of 1-4 riders ride simultaneously to be the first to reach the 8.848 meters of Mt. Everest. This is Sudden-Death mode: it’s over when the first team summits! This should take about 4 hours and team apparel is encouraged! 

Arkenberger Crit is KOM in crit-style! This 1-hour race will be held after the finish of Team Everesting. Fast and fun, but also a good option for those who like it short and sweet.

All riders and spectators are welcome to a “just for fun” race to the top.
