The 2019 Chas Everitt Around the Pot, Overberg 100-Miler, is set to take place on Saturday 20 July from the Swellendam Showgrounds. The event not only features the flagship 160 kilometre distance but also offers 60-miler and 25-miler routes for less fit riders. Entries to all three distances opened on the 1stof November 2018 and if you enter before 31 January 2019 you will benefit from an early bird entry discount.

 

A significant part of the Chas Everitt Around the Pot appeal, beyond the spectacular route through the rolling Rûens of the Overberg is the fact that it is gravel bike friendly. In 2018 the men’s champion, HB Kruger, was victorious on a full suspension mountain bike; while the women’s champion, Kylie Hannekom, raced to her win on a gravel bike. The jury is still out then on which style of machine is truly faster over the 100-mile course. Perhaps the 2019 edition will reveal the answer decisively?
