AN INTRODUCTION TO THE RAPHA PRESTIGE

Adventure. Teamwork. Resilience.

The Rapha Prestige tasks teams of five with an all-day adventure across stunning terrain. Unsupported and unmarshalled, the rules are simple: start and finish as a team, and pass through all the checkpoints.

Prepare for approximately 150 kilometres, and expect to be on the bike for between 10-12 hours. We seek out the roads less travelled, aiming to be quite remote at times. The surface will be mixed, with sections ranging from perfect tarmac to rugged gravel. There will be two checkpoint locations and a supplied route, which will be revealed, only to confirmed participants, one week before the ride.

RULES

The Prestige is a completely unsupported ride. You are responsible for navigation and keeping yourself and your team going. Minimum kit should include two tubes, multi-tool, pump, patch kit, and a masterlink. We highly recommend spare kit and nutrition. A .gpx file will be supplied, teams must follow the supplied route.

TEAMS

Up to 30 teams of five riders.

ENTRY COST

¥25,000 per team and at least twelve beers to share amongst fellow riders after the ride. Once your application has been accepted, Rapha will be in touch to collect the entry fee. Rapha will supply a payment link to confirmed teams on or after 4th April. At the start we provide last minute nutrition, water and coffee. At the finish we’ll have a hot meal and extra drinks for every rider, and hope you can hang around to share stories as the sun sets.
