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.
Crossing into three northeastern states, Prestige Mt Riga greets riders with rolling terrain through the eastern part of Columbia County, flirts along the southern border of the Berkshires in western Massachusetts, and challenges riders across undulating hills in northwestern Connecticut. Meadows, farms and forests dot the landscape around this rural region of the northeast providing a picturesque backdrop along a demanding 177km route.
The exact route and details of the checkpoint locations will be revealed only to confirmed participants one week before the ride.
The Prestige Mt Riga is a completely unsupported ride to be completed by teams of four. To make sure you’re self-sufficient out on the road, 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 spare kit and plenty of food.
