An Introduction to the Rapha Prestige
The Rapha Prestige is not a race; it’s an unsupported, unsanctioned, and unmarshalled adventure across stunning terrain, and designed to bring out the camaraderie and suffering of road riding. The rules are simple, and the course is tough. Team members must ride and finish together.The Route
Approximately 200km with 2,200m elevation, the Rapha Prestige Khao Yai will take riders on several climbs through the picturesque Sankamphaeng mountain range while traversing across the beautiful agricultural farmscapes of rural Thailand. The Prestige Khao Yai also includes some challenging gravel and off-road sections, though the difficulty from these portions is quickly taken away by the breathtaking views that surround the area. The route turns back to the start point but continues on for the penultimate section, the climbs through the National Park of Khao Yai before the finish. Majestic, beautiful, magnificent, are just some words that riders and visitors have used to describe the park. A humbling experience to say the least, teams will ride through the roads of this pristine national park with a chance to witness its beautiful wildlife.
