KOM III - 27. AUGUST 2022

KOM BERLIN is a climbing 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!  This year there are three formats to choose from:

  • Ultra KOM (solo + duo FULL* everesting)
  • Team Everesting
  • Arkenberger Crit.

*Successful everesting attempts (>4424 meters) will be certified by everesting.com

This gravel climbing spectacle takes place on the Arkenberge which, at 121.9 meters, is the highest point in Berlin. We will party again, so camping is encouraged!

Location: Strasse nach Arkenberge 82, 13127 Berlin

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.

At 1800 Saturday, a one-time-up “just for fun” time trial to the top. After, we will hang out and cheer on the everesting riders till the beer runs out.

 At noon on Saturday, 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 we encourage team apparel. 

Important: 3 + 6 hour everesting will not be held this year. Single riders can however join the Team Everesting or Ultra events and ride as long as they like!

It’s KOM in crit-style! This 1-hour crit-style race will be held after the finish of Team Everesting. Fast and fun, but also a good option for those who don’t want to climb as much.

All weekend long – try for your fastest lap!
