    Rapha’s Oslo Prestige was ridden in tempestuous conditions this Saturday 16th May, with freezing cold gales and rain blasting the participants throughout. Undeterred, each of the 26 teams of four managed to get members to the finish line of the unsupported and unmarshalled adventure.

  2. Doppio: Giro d’Italia

    Text: | Datum:

    Doppio is Italian for a ‘double espresso’ but – also – the name for Rapha’s weekly shot of race reportage and previews. And what better week to kick off the return of the Doppio than with the Giro, a race that never disappoints. We’ve already witnessed some magnifica corsa, from Alberto ‘Pistolero’ Contador taking the maglia rosa and riding on despite a dislocated shoulder, to two unknown young guns escaping up the road with beautiful stage wins; so far, so great. We can’t wait to see what else the first [and for our money the best] Grand Tour of the season will bring.

    Text: Molly Ritterbeck | Fotografie: Molly Ritterbeck | Datum:

    It’s hard to argue with the belief that cycling is one of the best ways to get around a big city. In recent years, bike commuting has spiked 62 percent in the US, and a whopping 105 percent in the largest cities, according to the nonprofit organization The League of American Bicyclists.

    But sometimes, commuting by bike isn’t as easy as, well, riding a bike – so we’ve tapped the collective knowledge of a crew of commuters from big cities near and far, asking for their top tips and lessons learned. Hopefully this short guide will help make your two-wheeled commute safe, stylish, and most of all, fun.

    Text: | Fotografie: Matthew Beaudin | Datum:

    Team Sky’s Ian Boswell cools down on the trainer after a Tour of California stage patiently. As if pedalling for five hours wasn’t enough. The 24-year-old from Bend, Oregon hasn’t been home to the United States since last year’s Tour of California and is now calling Nice, France, “home” in conversation. Rapha caught up with the American for a quick chat.

  5. How the race was worn: Victorious Viviani

    Text: | Fotografie: Graham Watson | Datum:

    Elia Viviani’s sprint victory on stage 2 of the Giro was a masterclass in slipstreaming, executed while wearing a prototype Rapha speedsuit. The Italian jumped from wheel to wheel in the lead up to the sprint, showing perfect decision-making at speeds of up to 60km/h to stay near the front. Following Lotto NL-Jumbo’s Moreno Hofland up the final 500m drag, Viviani then made his burst for the line, winning by half a wheel.

    Bethnal Green is the beating heart of east London. A heart that’s been broken and unbroken many times, it’s an area that contains both contemporary and the contorted faces of the capital’s fashion, art and finance industries.

    To call Oki Tatsuya a bicycle messenger doesn’t really do justice to a man who’s been at the heart of Tokyo’s urban bike scene since the end of the nineties. Lee Basford caught up with him late one night in Tokyo.

    Sebastian Tarek crafts bespoke shoes that are genuine works of functional art. His workshop and approach to his trade offer a distinct nod towards a bygone era, but prove that time is a precious commodity. We visited his place of work in Arnold Circus, east London.
