RAPHA PRESTIGE 2020
The Rapha Prestige challenges small amateur teams to take on an unsupported and unmarshalled adventure across stunning terrain, riding and finishing as a team. And while our 2020 calendar has been curtailed, some events have still been taking place.
Adventure. Teamwork. Resilience.

We ride together
Ride as a team, look like a team. Design a customised kit for your team for the perfect preparation and motivation for the miles that lie ahead.
Rapha Prestige Wakasa
Our latest unmarshalled adventure got underway recently in Wakasa, Japan where there were there were forested climbs and a mix of terrains, as well as a selection of bold new kits created with Rapha Custom. Local photographer Nobuhiko Tanabe was on hand to capture the spirit of the event in this beautiful image gallery.
The Rapha Prestige so far…
Prestige so far
Prestige Peak District
“When the tank is close to empty and you feel like quitting, knowing that you’re part of a team can be fuel enough to keep the legs turning.”
– Lewis Greaves, rider at the Prestige Peak District
Hidden villages, mountain roads
More than 70 percent of South Korea is covered by mountains, and among this tightly knit network of ranges and river systems to the east of the Korean peninsula, the Taebaek mountains stretch all the way from the north to the southern coast.
More cows than cars
Steamboat Springs sits somewhat remotely in Northwest Colorado. Located in Routt County, nestled up next to the Continental Divide, which traces a long and mountainous line down from Montana to New Mexico, its location makes for spectacular riding. Moots, the frame manufacturer, played generous host to the Prestige and its 25 teams.
