The Rapha Prestige tasks small amateur teams with an unsupported and unmarshalled adventure across stunning terrain. Unsupported and unmarshalled, the rules are simple: start and finish as a team, and pass through all the checkpoints.
Prepare for approximately 160 kilometres of riding and expect to be on the bike for around 8 hours. We seek out the roads less travelled, aiming to be quite remote at times on a route through the Sobaek Mountains that tracks river valleys, passes ancient towns and takes in five tough climbs. There will be checkpoint locations and a supplied route, which will be revealed only to confirmed participants 48 hours before the ride.
The Prestige Geosan is a completely unsupported ride to be completed by teams of four. You are responsible for navigation and all riders are expected to be self-sufficient. Minimum kit should include two tubes, a multi-tool, a pump, a 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.
