CLIMB!

Want to get high? KOM BERLIN is a climbing event for Gravel, MTB and CX bikes at the Arkenberge, the highest point in Berlin, over a 3,3km mostly-uphill gravel circuit. Each lap nets 96m altitude and is open to amateur cyclists of all ages.

CHILL!

It’s like Tour de France. Only closer and fewer helicopters. Witness this spectacle of endless elevation with beer, music and nice people for a guaranteed good time. Bring family and friends and make a day out of KOM Berlin!

Ultra Distance meets KOM with ULTRA KOM. Solo riders can attempt to ride the 8848m of Mt Everest! All riders who complete at least 4424m will enter the everesting.com hall of fame. You have 24 hours to try, and sleeping is not allowed.

A full everesting is 92 laps (303km). The current record, set in 2021 by Florian Speicher, is 85 laps. Will anyone ever reach the top of this mountain? We don’t think so, but whoever is either the first to do it, or does the most laps, will be this years’ Ultra KOM champion.

Don’t think you can do it? No problem! You can start this challenge any time within the 24 hours and try and see how high you can get. Feldberg? Puig Major? Alpe d’Huez? You decide!

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.  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.

Racers take note: This is the unofficial Berlin Mountain Cycling Championships!

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