This unique MTB race has been billed as one of the toughest single day events in SA!
2017 will be the 6th year of the Berg 100
The Berg 100 takes place between two iconic villages - Nottingham Road and Himeville. What makes this race unique to any other in SA is that due to the nature of the route we are able to change directions every year, allowing the rider a completely "new" ride every year! This year the race will start in Himeville and end in Notties.
A great race in it's own right, the Safire Berg 100 is also the perfect preparation ride for Sani & JoBerg2C - to make sure the training is paying off and to spot any chinks in the armour, 7 weeks prior to the event.
The climbs are long, but so are the descents, and the riding is designed to make the route fast, not technically difficult.

Awesome race, well done to all the organisers. Loved it. One of the best races to do on the Calendar.
We have spoken about nothing else since the race but the Berg 100! Thanks again for a wonderful weekend of pushing the limits!
