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 all the checkpoints. The route you choose is your own.

THE ROUTE

Prepare for approximately 150 kilometres and 3,860 metres of climbing. Expect to be on the bike for 8-10 hours. We seek out the roads less travelled, aiming to be quite remote at times, riding amongst spectacular views of unspoilt French countryside over a challenging mix of surfaces. There will be checkpoint locations and a supplied route, which will be revealed only to confirmed participants 24 hours 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 paper cue sheet will be supplied as well as a .gpx file.

TEAMS

Up to 30 teams of four will be confirmed by Monday, 11th September.

ENTRY COST

100€ per team. The closing date for applications is Thursday, 31st August. Rapha will contact successful teams with a payment link.
