AN INTRODUCTION TO THE RAPHA PRESTIGE
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 three checkpoints. The route you choose is your own.
Prepare for 148 kilometres of hilly terrain, with 3,400m of climbing. Expect to be on the bike for at least 8 hours, together we’ll seek out roads less travelled. There will be three checkpoint locations along the route which will 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, however the supplied route is not necessarily the most direct way to each checkpoint – teams are encouraged to plot their own routes (in the spirit of the ride we ask teams not to take roads).
Up to 40 teams of four riders will be confirmed. Ten spaces are guaranteed for Rapha Cycling Club teams.
100,000KRW 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 Friday 31st March. At the start we provide last minute nutrition and water. At the finish we’ll have hot food and extra drinks for every rider, and hope you can hang around to share stories as the sun sets.
The closing date for applications is Friday 31st March. Rapha will contact successful teams on or after Friday 7th April with a payment link.
