Ein Mal Hoch! (One time up!)

Ultra Distance meets KOM with ULTRA KOM. Solo riders and pairs can attempt to ride the height of Mt Everest (8848m) All riders who complete at least 4424m will enter the Hall of Fame! 

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? Come find out!

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. 

2022 is done and dusted

Thanks for making it a great event!
