Adventure. Teamwork. Resilience.

The Rapha Prestige tasks teams of four 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 162 kilometres, and expect to be on the bike for around six hours. There will be checkpoint locations and a supplied route, which will only be revealed to confirmed participants 48 hours before the ride.


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 paper cue sheet will be supplied as well as a .gpx file.


Up to 35 teams of women will be confirmed. Ten spaces are guaranteed for Rapha Cycling Club teams.


$100US per team. 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 XX. At the start we provide water and coffee. At the finish we’ll have a buffet lunch. We hope you can stay with us to share stories as the sun sets.
