The Rapha Prestige tasks small amateur teams with an unsupported and unmarshalled adventure across stunning terrain. The rules are simple: start and finish as a team and pass through all the checkpoints.
Bentonville has become a premier mountain bike destination in North America, boasting one of the most robust trail systems on the continent. Its thick forests have made it the ideal playground for any ambitious mountain biker. In tandem with the opening day of our Rapha Pop-up Clubhouse in Bentonville, on October 1st, we'll host our first ever mountain bike Prestige. Putting a spin on a Rapha classic, the event will have everything that makes our Prestiges so unique but with an added injection of the mountain biking attitude that drives the local culture in Northwest Arkansas.
Prepare for approximately 55 miles of rolling terrain. Expect to be on the bike for 7 hours. The exact route will be revealed only to confirmed participants 48 hours before the ride.
The MTB Prestige Bentonville is an entirely unsupported ride to be completed by teams of two or four. To make sure you’re self-sufficient out on the trails, ensure you’re prepared for anything by bringing along two tubes, a multi-tool, a pump, a patch kit, and a masterlink. We highly recommend a wind jacket and plenty of food.
