Rapha and EF

Grand Tour glory, Monument victories and alternative calendar exploration. All set for another standout season at the WorldTour’s most exciting team.

When we returned to the men's professional peloton back in 2019, we knew we didn’t want to partner with any old pro team. The sport can be stale at times but with the packed roster of charismatic riders on board at EF Education-Nippo, we knew we could shake the sport up.

Two years on, we’ve taken to the podium at some of the world’s most prestigious, from de Ronde to la Vuelta; we’ve explored a whole new world of races with our alternative calendar series; and in so doing we’ve taken the sport of cycling to a new fans in all corners of the planet.

In 2021, we’re looking forward to more of the same, with some fresh faces to add to our cast of familiar ones. As usual, Lachlan Morton will be living a double life as a WorldTour pro turned endurance racer. And this year, he’ll be taking more of his teammates along with him.

“Cycling is a very old school sport with a heap of traditions but at this team we go against the grain.”

The Races

MIGRATION GRAVEL

An unexpected season opener sees Lachlan Morton head to Kenya for a 600km off-road race without a single stretch of tarmac. Organised by local Maasai tribespeople, MGR helps to fund local cycling initiatives.

Cape Epic

8 days. 647 kilometres. 15,550 metres climbing. Colloquially called the Tour de France of mountain biking, Cape Epic entrants race the stages in pairs across the rugged mountain trails, rocky singletrack and sandy farm roads of South Africa’s Western Cape.

TRO BRO LEON

A little-known yet notorious race on the French calendar, Tro Bro Leon takes the best road racers in the world on a whistle stop tour of Brittany’s back roads. Pure power is key but bike handling and strategy play crucial parts too. Oh, and the victor wins a pig.
