Grindrod Bank Berg & Bush 2-Day

Our original and beloved Berg & Bush event, the 2-Day is popular amongst family groups, beginner mountain bikers and riders looking for two mellow days on the saddle. Both days start and finish at the Em’seni race village, with riders enjoying maximum fun and excitement on the trails. Riders from ages 15 and above are welcome to enter.

The Descent

Grindrod Bank Berg & Bush Descent

The whizz, bang, wow of our three Berg & Bush events, the Descent is where dust flies and mountain bikers push themselves to the limit. Featuring the one-of-a-kind Sollie’s Folly descent off the escarpment and into the bushveld, the Descent is where the men and women of mountain biking who like to ride hard can test themselves against the best.

Riders camp along the shady banks of the Tugela river at the famous Em'Seni Camp near Winterton.
