The Standard Bank Berg & Bush Descent

Three days of whizz, bang and wow! The Descent is where dust flies and mountain bikers push themselves to the limit of fun. Featuring the one-of-a-kind 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.
