The Rapha Continental riders are not a team. At least not in the typical sense, or the racing sense. We are a group of individuals united in effort and focus, and we do cooperate. But we’re interested in more than winning races, and sometimes even racing. We’re interested in winning hearts and minds and sharing our experiences, telling stories and inspiring rides.
We’re looking for personality and passion, and the willingness, eagerness even, to perform in the interests of exploration and documentation. We want style, an aesthetic, a point of view and a voice.
The Continental is about participation, exalting any and all who endeavor to ride with passion and heart. Central to the project is our desire to discover the places and people that do and have done the style of riding that we’ve begun to call – Continental.
